An advanced System Information tool for your PC
Speccy is a powerful system information tool that can show detailed stats on your hardware with minimum user input.
Once you launch the app, it automatically scans the computer and displays the information in a very well-organized interface, with the process taking less than a minute.
While the machine is a bit stressed up during this time, the hardware scanning process collects information on every single area of the system, including CPU, RAM, motherboard, graphics, hard drives, audio, peripherals and network.
Obviously, a summary is also available, showing you critical information about every single piece of hardware mentioned above. What’s more, it shows current temperature levels of the CPU and graphic adapters, as well as firewall rules and current TCP connections.
The collected information can be exported to XML or TXT documents on your local disks, while Speccy can also save, load and publish snapshots with just one click.
There are only a few options to play with, but Speccy allows you to see temperature levels in other metric or imperial units, while a dedicated utility allows you to save all settings to INI file.
Online help is also available, although chances are that you don’t need it because most of the features are pretty intuitive and Speccy takes care of the whole task all by itself. The information is displayed in a one-window GUI with absolutely no prior configuration.
Speccy is clearly an interesting project that does exactly what it says and provides plenty of options to all users who launch it. You don’t need to be a computer guru to use it, although advanced knowledge is needed to understand the displayed data. The Internet however is full of information on every piece of hardware.
Speccy will give you detailed statistics on every piece of hardware in your computer. Including CPU, Motherboard, RAM, Graphics Cards, Hard Disks, Optical Drives, Audio support. Additionally Speccy adds the temperatures of your different components, so you can easily see if there's a problem!
At first glance, Speccy may seem like an application for system administrators and power users. It certainly is, but Speccy can also help normal users, in everyday computing life.
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's already installed. Then you can go out and buy the right type of memory to add on or replace what you've already got.
If you're going to be selling your PC, you can use Speccy to quickly list out the components. Or, if you're buying a PC, you can use Speccy to check that the computer has what the label says it has.
Also, Speccy comes in handy for support. If you're on the phone with technical support and they want to know what video card you have installed, there's no need to hunt around Windows. You can simply launch Speccy and view all the necessary data within an easy-to-understand window.
