An in-depth report on your PCs hardware

CPU-Z is a free utility that provides useful information on many aspects of your PCs hardware.

If you've just bought a new system, for instance, then CPU-Z can help you check that you've got exactly what you're expecting. Just click the appropriate tab and it'll display the CPU type and speed, motherboard, RAM amount and speed, graphics card model, and more.

Each section provides many extra details that are particularly useful when you're upgrading. If you want to add more memory, say, then it's probably a good idea to match the speed and type of RAM you have already. You could open the case to have a look, but it's easier to run CPU-Z, and check the Memory and SPD tabs. They'll provide the RAM type, speed, memory timings, manufacturer, even the part number, everything you need to know.

And if you're planning to overclock your CPU or graphics card then you should start by noting your current core speeds, multiplier, bus speed and more. This is probably available in the BIOS, or maybe the Control Panel Display Settings applet, but once again it's much simpler to use CPU-Z. The program supports all the latest hardware, and the answers you need are usually just a click away.

Version 1.74 brings (Changelog):

  • Improved CPU benchmark
  • AMD Carrizo APUs
  • eDRAM detection on Slylake CPUs
  • Skylake logos

A quick and easy way to discover everything you ever needed to know about your PCs CPU, memory, motherboard and more

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
