CPU-Z is a freeware system profiling and monitoring application for Microsoft Windows and Android that detects the central processing unit, RAM, motherboard chipset, and other hardware features of a modern personal computer or Android device.


CPU-Z is more in-depth in virtually all areas compared to the tools provided in the Windows OS to identify various hardware components, and thus assists in identifying certain components without the need of opening the case; particularly the core revision and RAM clock rate. It also provides information on the system's GPU.

CPU-Z has an ability to directly detect hardware features, such as the ability to access, read, and display the SPD data (including manufacturer, manufacture date, and part number) from memory modules, which can be invaluable to those looking to add or replace memory. The ability to document clock speed makes it a tool for motherboard overclockers, as a way of proving the CPU speeds achieved by various experiments.
