A processor, also known as a CPU (from central processing unit in English), is a key element of any computer configuration. To objectively judge the performance of a processor versus its competitors, we recommend using the CPU-Z utility. This free little software allows you to perform CPU benchmarks and compare the results with other users’ tests.
CPU-Z is aFree and very light, it displays technical information about the processor and allows you to execute from .
For best results, close all otherprocessing.so Fully usable for CPU-Z testing.
The CPU-Z interface is basic, but fully functional.The software opens on a tab, which displays the processor’s name, its TDP, voltage, frequency, and other technical information. To perform a CPU test, select the Bench tab.
This tab is dedicated to benchmarking, i.e. evaluating processor performance.We recommend that you keep the suggested baseline version in the drop-down list, as other versions are. Click the “Bench CPU” button to start the test.
Benchmarks start with multi-core tests, followed by single-core evaluations. Wait for the process to complete, this should take less than 20 seconds.
CPU-Z integrates aSome CPU benchmarks, you can compare your results by selecting them from the Reference drop-down list.
For more comparison points, in the reference of all processors on the market, click Submit & Compare.This button sends your results toCPU-Z and automatically opens a web page showing a summary of CPU performance.
Clicking on the “Single Thread” or “Multi Thread” score displayed on the right side of the screen will open a page with a graph listing all processors tested by CPU-Z.
So you can check how the processor’s score compares to its reference value, or find out what performance gains you can get by changing the chip. CPU-Z is also a good tool to evaluate the efficiency of a processoror insufficient voltage. By performing benchmark tests before and after applying settings, you can compare performance objectively.

what you have to remember
- CPU-Z is a free small CPU diagnostic tool that provides a solid benchmarking tool and the ability to compare results with all competing chips.
