Each computer contains at least one processor, also known as a CPU or central processing unit. Your computer's CPU is probably manufactured by Intel or AMD. So you can see which CPU you own and how fast it is.
You do not need a System Information utility to find this information. Windows shows it in different places.
To find this information in the Windows 1
You can press Windows + I to quickly open the Settings app. You can also press the Windows key, type "About" to search for this setting screen in the Start menu, and click the "About This PC" link displayed.
The Windows 10 Task Manager also shows detailed information about the CPU. Right-click on your taskbar and select "Task Manager" or press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to launch the taskbar. Click the "Performance" tab and select "CPU." This displays the name and speed of your computer's CPU. (If the Performance tab is not displayed, click More Details.)
It also displays real-time CPU usage data and other details, including the number of processor cores your computer's CPU has.
Users of Windows 7 – or Windows 10 – find this information in Control Panel. It is especially in the system window. Go to Control Panel> System and Security> System to open it. You can also press Windows + Pause on the keyboard to open this window immediately.
Your computer's CPU model and speed are displayed to the right of "Processor" under the heading System.
If Windows does not start on your system, you can find this information in several other ways. The documentation for your computer is likely to contain system specification details like these. This information may also be displayed on the screen of your computer's BIOS or in the UEFI firmware settings.
