CPU-Z is a freeware system profiler (system monitor) application for Microsoft Windows (for all versions from XP on) that detects the central processing unit, RAM, motherboard chipset, and other hardware features of a modern personal computer, and presents the information in one window.

CPU-Z is more in-depth in almost all areas than the tools provided in the Windows OS to identify various hardware components, and thus assists in identifying certain components without opening the case; particularly the core revision and RAM clock rate. Most recently, a Graphics tab has been added. It has an unusual ability to directly detect hardware features, such as the ability to access, read, and display the SPD data from memory modules. The ability to document clock speed makes it an important tool for motherboard overclockers, as a way of proving the CPU speeds achieved by various experiments.
