Speccy is an excellent system information tool for your PC. What’s on your computer? If you are like most of us, you can probably name the processor (Intel or AMD, Celeron or Pentium), maybe the amount of RAM you have, and maybe how big the hard drive is.
When you go to a computer store and see all the shiny bright PCs placed next to each other, most will have stickers or stickers that indicate the following:
- Processor Brand and Model
- Hard disk size and speed
- Amount of memory (RAM)
- Graphics card
Two or three years later, when it comes time to upgrade your computer, that label or sticker may have disappeared long ago. Speccy was created as a free electronic “what’s inside” tag for your PC.
Is this information in Windows?
Yes and no. Some of the basic information can be found by right-clicking My Computer and click Properties. The General tab shows some statistics and the Device Manager on the Hardware tab shows all the hardware you have installed. But you lose a lot of information that you need.
Speccy will give you detailed statistics about each piece of hardware on your computer. Includes CPU, motherboard, RAM, graphics cards, hard drives, optical drives, audio support. In addition Speccy adds the temperatures of its various components, so you can easily see if there is a problem!
Why do I need Speccy?
At first glance, Speccy may seem like an application for system administrators and power users. Certainly, it is, but Speccy can also help ordinary users in the everyday life of computing.
If you need to add more memory to your system, for example, you can check how many memory slots your computer has and what memory is already installed. Then you can go out and buy the right type of memory to add or replace what you already have.
If you are selling your PC, you can use Speccy to quickly list the components. Or, if you are buying a PC, you can use Speccy to check that the computer has what the label says.
In addition, Speccy is useful for support. If you are on the phone with technical support and want to know what video card you have installed, there is no need to hunt in Windows. Speccy has all the information on an easy to understand screen.
