Want to get the rundown on every aspect of your system hardware?
Speccy gives so much detailed, technical information about
hardware, it could choke even the mind of a hard-core techie.
Run Speccy, and its summary screen gives the basics, including
your CPU type and specs, motherboard information, graphics care
data, hard drive information, and information about your optical
drives and audio. When I say “basics,” though, I mean basics
according to this program, which means more detail than most other
programs give. For example, it shows you the temperature of your
CPU and hard drive.
Click any category of hardware, and Speccy gives you a
remarkable amount of technical detail. For your CPU, for example,
it lists each individual core if you’ve got a multi-core CPU, and
provide detail about each core, such as its speed, temperature, and
so on. It also offers similarly detailed information about the
entire CPU. Speccy is more comprehensive than other system analysis
programs, such as SystemInfo.
If you only need basic system information, you don’t need
Speccy. But if you need detailed technical data about your
hardware–or just like knowing that sort of thing–it’s a great
program to download.
Note: This review covers the beta version of
the software. Developer Piriform (best known for CCleaner)
recommends that Speccy be used only by advanced users on test
