Capable and powerful software for displaying information about key details about your PC.

HWiNFO is a system information utility capable of identifying a wide range of components.

It supports the latest technologies and standards and provides extensive information about CPU, RAM, motherboard, hard drives, network devices, temperatures, etc. It also allows you to test your computer by performing benchmarks.

Perform benchmarks on your disks, CPU or RAM

It includes some tools to monitor the health of some of the components, such as processor, memory and disk benchmarks that allow you to measure its performance and compare the results with those of other models; or a temperature sensor for the disk and the CPU.

HWiNFO is basically a system information tool that can be used on PCs. However, unlike other programs that scan and analyze software, this tool focuses solely on the hardware that makes up the entire system of a computer. It sorts all the data it collects and classifies it into several categories for a better presentation.

Everything is presented on a single page: sections organized into collapsible branch directories in the navigation pane on the left of the window. There are a total of 10 sections to navigate through. The first ones are dedicated to the CPU, motherboard, ram memory, video adapter (GPU) and storage units. It provides a lot of information, including core counts, clock speeds, capabilities, and much more.

Export the results in different formats

You can also configure status reports that include the data of the components of your choice and export them to text, CSV, XML, HTML, or MHTML format.

In conclusion, if you are looking for a system information tool that provides comprehensive and detailed data about a PC's hardware, HWiNFO is worth a try. The tool itself is easy to use and covers virtually all types of components that can be found within a computer system. The fact that it's free is also a nice bonus.
