ARCHIVED: In Windows, how do I verify my computer's CPU speed?
CPU speed indicates the number of instructions per second the CPU (central processing unit) can process. This speed is typically given in hertz (Hz).
To check the CPU speed, in Windows 7 and Vista, click
msinfo32. In Windows XP, from the
menu, select , and then enter
Your computer's CPU speed will appear in the "Processor" description. For instance, in "x86 Family 15 Model 1 Stepping 2 GenuineIntel ~1495 Mhz", the CPU speed is 1495 MHz (i.e., 1.495 GHz).
