How to See What CPU Is In Your PC

To see what CPU (Central Processing Unit) is in your PC, you can follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the “Start” button in Windows and select “System”.
  2. In the System window that opens, scroll down to the “Device specifications” section.
  3. Look for the “Processor” entry, which will display the name and speed of your CPU.
  4. Alternatively, you can open the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc, and select the “Performance” tab. Here you can see your CPU usage and basic information about your CPU.

Another option is to use third-party software, such as CPU-Z or Speccy, which can provide more detailed information about your CPU, including the model number, core count, clock speed, and more. These programs are free to download and use, and can provide useful information about your PC’s hardware.

Overall, identifying the CPU in your PC can be a helpful step in troubleshooting performance issues, upgrading your system, or simply understanding more about the hardware that powers your computer.
