Intel Processor Identification Utility - Download

Need a quick way to identify what processor is installed in the box?

Or, in the extremely rare but possible event that the CPU may be acting up, need to test the status of the CPU?

Then the Intel Processor Identification Utility works really well.

It came to us via a support session with Intel a while back.

Here are screenshots of the three tabs available to you:

Frequency Test Tab

CPU Technologies Tab

CPUID Data Tab

The data presented in the screenshots is pretty much self explanatory.

This little tool has helped us out in the past, and we keep an up to date copy on our Technician's Thumb Drive.

Note that the utility checks for updates every six months. Keep in mind that one will need to check the utilitie's version every once in a while, or update when the tool requests it.

I find CPU-Z a great little tool for this, as it's processor agnostic.
It's also really handy to check how many memory modules are installed and what their latency is. Useful if you can't or don't want to crack open the case.

I have used it in the past ... I completely forgot about it... kinda tells you how much time I have had to read through the performance and OCg sites lately! ;)

Thanks for the comments,
