To display the main elements of your system, such as the processor, its number and name, cache level, chipset, motherboard, indicators of the memory clock frequency, as well as individual cores and some others, a freely distributed program was developed CPU-Z.
SPD specification, time, size and type of memory
At the moment, thanks to the CPUID set in the CPU-Z, it is already possible to use an individual detection module and development tools for information about the CPUID system, SDK.
Installation and Setup CPU-Z
Starting with version 1.51, the CPU-Z includes an installer. Installation offers several advantages over the standalone version:
During installation, program entries are created in the Start menu and on the desktop.
It installs the correct x32 or x64 binary, depending on your system.
Run the installation .exe file and follow the instructions during the installation process.
You can remove the program from the "Add or Remove Programs" window from the "Settings", "Control Panel" menus or select "Remove CPU-Z" from the "Start", "Programs", "CPUID", "CPU-Z" menus.
CPU-Z uses the cpuz.ini configuration file, which allows you to set several parameters for the program. The cpuz.ini file must be in the same directory as cpuz.exe. Please note that the use of this file is optional. If the .ini file is not found, the default values will be used.
TextFontName = Verdana
TextFontSize = 13
TextFontColor = 000060
LabelFontName = Verdana
LabelFontSize = 13
PCI = 1
MaxPCIBus = 256
DMI = 1
Sensor = 1
SMBus = 1
Display = 1
UseDisplayAPI = 1
BusClock = 1
Chipset = 1
SPD = 1
CheckUpdates = 1
Let's analyze each field and its CPU-Z value:
TextFontName - The font used for information blocks.
TextFontSize - The font size used for information blocks.
TextFontColor - The font color used for information fields. The value is expressed in hexadecimal format and consists of the classic red / green / blue color codes: RRGGBB
LabelFontName - The font used for labels
LabelFontSize - The font size used for labels.
Sensor - Setting to OFF (or 0) disables the detection of the sensor chip and voltage measurement.
DMI - Setting to OFF disables DMI (Desktop Management Interface) information. This applies to the manufacturer and version of the BIOS, the manufacturer and version of the motherboard.
PCI - Setting to OFF disables PCI information. This disables the chipset, SPD and, depending on the hardware, sensory information.
MaxPCIBus - Sets the maximum PCI bus for scanning. The default value is 256.
SMBus - Setting to OFF (or 0) disables SMBus: SPD information and, depending on the equipment, sensor information.
Display - Setting to OFF (or 0) disables the video card information reported in the validator.
ShowDutyCycles - Setting to 1, switches the alternative method of calculating the clock frequency based on duty cycles. 0 to disable.
UseDisplayAPI - Setting to 1, uses the display driver to read information about display adapters. 0 to disable.
CheckUpdate - Check for updates.
Special CPU-Z keys:
The F5 key allows you to save the screenshot as a bmp file in the application directory.
The F6 key copies the current page to the clipboard.
The F7 key saves the cvf verification file to the current directory.
The F9 key toggles methods for calculating the processor clock speed.
