Overview

This utility is used to display your processor features and its configuration. As you must know, every processor generation has its own configuration and features. The processor features are not just limited to how fast your processor speed (MHz), but its more than you know.

You may ever asked these questions:
  • What does your processor can do ?
  • Does your processor support SSE2 technology ?
  • How much your L1 processor cache ?
  • How much your L2 processor cache ?
  • Does your processor support Bus Multiplier control ?
  • Bla .. bla .. bla .. etc

Processor features are some built in specific features, instructions or technologies supported by your processor. For example built in Floating Point Unit (FPU), RDTSC support, MMX support, MTRR, SEP, CMOV, SSE, SSE-2, 3DNOW, Ext. 3DNOW support, etc.

Processor configuration include your processor vendor or manufacturer, its generation, type, family, model, stepping, Brand ID, Serial Number, also L1 and L2 cache configuration.

But unfortunatelly, your BIOS and Windows OS does not provides you enough informations about your processor configuration and its available features. So you can not get so much informations.

Fortunatelly, I have made CPUID32, a simple utility that can provides you enough informations about your processor configuration and of course with its available features supported.

Features

CPUID32 provides you a simple menu which contain your processor informations such as configuration and its features. To display the information you wanted, just select it from the menu. CPUID32 has 15 (fiveteen) information sections about your processor configuration. They are:

  • [I] Processor Identity
  • [F] Standard Features
  • [C] Standard Configuration
  • [P] Prescott Spesific Parameters Detail
  • [i] Extended Processor Identity
  • [f] Extended Features
  • [1] Extended L1 Cache Configuration
  • [2] Extended L2 Cache Configuration
  • [p] Enhanced Power Management
  • [H] Physical Address and Linear Address Size
  • [T] Transmeta Processor Identity
  • [t] Transmeta Processor Features
  • [S] Transmeta Processor Status
  • [D] Dhrystone Benchmark
  • [W] Whetstone Benchmark

But all of fiveteen menus above can not always be displayed together, however they are depend on your processor configuration and features. For example, some menus may not be displayed on your Pentium II processor, and others may not be displayed on your Athlon processor.

Here, I have collected some .html results generated with [R] Generate HTML Report menu on some machines tested with CPUID32. If you have collected the others, please send them to me (I accept ZIPped .html format only), include a little description about your machines, and I will put them to this page.

Development

CPUID32 has been developed since about July 2000. It has created and developed using Delphi language. I use Borland Delphi 7.0 Enterprise Build 4.453, my favourite compiler under Microsoft Windows XP Professional Operating System. The last version, v1.33, it takes about 4600+ lines code, include the comments and codes provided from Delphi Windows unit. The code contain both assembly instruction and standard Delphi / Pascal language. Assembly instruction is used to get processor informations. It is very powerfull (super fast and efficien) code.

End User License Agreement [EULA]

Although CPUID32 is a FREEWARE, CPUID32 is provided 'AS IS'. Author IS NOT RESPONSIBLE with any DAMAGES may occur after you run CPUID32. Author IS also NOT RESPONSIBLE with any DAMAGES may occur with INFORMATIONS PROVIDED by CPUID32. So, use CPUID32 with your OWN RISK.

Installation

CPUID32 does not need installation process. CPUID32 is an independent Win32 console application. CPUID32 packed as .zip archieve, so in order to run CPUID32, you must extract / expand the archieve first. CPUID32 archieve consists of 3 files,

  • CPUID32.EXE - the application
  • CPUID32.DAT - CPUID database file
  • README.TXT - readme file

After all files had been extracted, you can run the CPUID32.EXE same as how you run other application. However, you can not run CPUID32 from pure DOS mode.

History

As I have described above, CPUID32 has developed since about July 2000. It has changed for several times. Here are the history of CPUID32 versions.
