  • What CPU Do I Have?

    OK,

    I have my mum's old PC and I want to figure out what it's CPU is ... unfortunately the BIOS doesn't tell me and I appear to be incapable of removing the fan assembly from the motherboard (it's one of those whacky Tiny PC's). I can reattach the original disk but, unfortunately, I've destroyed the original XP build and it now has Linux (SuSE) on it so my question to any Linux guys here is, is there an easy way to tell what the CPU speed is (I think it's a P4 1.7 but not sure)?

    Any ideas?

      Just out of curiousity: What does the BIOS state for the CPU?

        Should be able to see what it is if you can press the PAUSE button at the correct time during the POST.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2

          if it's a linux box,

          from a command line, as root, or with root privileges:

          cat /proc/cpuinfo

          So you can see this particular server is a 2.66Ghz CPU..

          You could also do 'dmesg | more' and scroll through the output which will give you more indepth info on the cpu if that interests you..
