  • Generic Company Place Holder SIV (System Information Viewer)

How detailed is the information SIV provides? Start off with your processor. SIV shows detailed information about the speed, various caches, model of chip, and so on. If you have multiple cores on the chip, it shows you that information for each core. It provides similar detailed information about your RAM, USB bus, and more.

Simply run the program, and SIV reports its results. In some instances, however, it might not be able to find the information you want. If that's the case, visit the SIV Web site, and you can download special add-ins that will help.

Note from vendor: To fully do its work, SIV needs to run its device driver. To do that, you?ll need to run the program using administrative rights.
