New version of CPU-Z offers benchmark tool
CPU-Z is one of the most popular system tools that are freely available on the Internet. The program has been around for many years, getting a new version every time a new CPU or GPU gets released. The reason for the longevity of this app is that it is simple and very informative. Starting now, however, CPU-Z also has a benchmarking tool inside that lets you compare how your CPU does against the competition.
You will need to get the latest 1.73 version of the app in order to enjoy this new benchmark tool but this is not everything you will get. Version 1.73 also has a new validation system, the ability to show L4 cache (eDRAM) clock frequency and support for Windows 10.
The new benchmarking tool steals the show, though. The tool is hidden inside a CPU-Z tab that you can easily see and it allows you to benchmark or stress test your CPU. No matter which option you choose, you will get single-threaded and multi-threaded scores and you can then compare them to other powerful processors of today. You can even boast with your results, if they are good enough.
The new version of CPU-Z is here and it is free as usual.
