INSTALL & CONFIGURATION FAQ & TROUBLESHOOTING
Install and Remove
Since version 1.51, CPU-Z includes an installer. The installation offers several advantages in comparison to the stand-alone version :
- The installation creates program entries in the start menu and on the desktop.
- It installs the right binary (x32 or x64) depending on your system.
Run the setup executable file, and let it guide you for the installation process.
You can remove the program either from the Add or Remove Programs window (from Settings, Control Panel), or choose Uninstall CPU-Z from Start menu, Programs, CPUID, CPU-Z.
CPU-Z uses a configuration file, cpuz.ini, that allows to set several parameters for the program. The cpuz.ini file must be in the same directory as cpuz.exe.
Note that the use of this file is optional. If no .ini file is found, default values will be used.
It looks like this :
||Font used for the information boxes.|
||Size of the font used for the information boxes.|
||Color of the font used for the information boxes. Value is expressed in hexadecimal, and consists in a classic Red/Green/Blue color code : RRGGBB|
||Font used for the label boxes.|
||Size of the font used for the label boxes.|
||Set to OFF (or 0) disables sensor chip detection and voltages measurement.|
||Set to OFF disables the DMI (Desktop Management Interface) information. This concerns BIOS vendor and version, motherboard vendor and revision.|
||Set to OFF disables the PCI information. This disables chipset, SPD and, depending on the hardware, sensoring information.|
||Sets the maximum PCI bus to scan. Default value is 256.|
||Set to OFF (or 0) disables SMBus information : SPD, and, depending on the hardware, sensoring information.|
||Set to OFF (or 0) disables the video card information reported in the validator.|
||Set to 1, switches the alternate clock computation method based on duty cycles. 0 to disable.|
||Set to 1, uses the display driver to read the display adapters information. 0 to disable.|
||Launch CPU-Z in ghost mode : no interface appears, the register dump (report. txt) is automatically created.Example:cpuz.exe -txt=c:\mydirectory\mysystem: runs CPU-Z in ghost mode. Report file mysystem.txt is automatically generated in directory c:\mydirectory.|
||Same as «-txt» but generates the html report file.|
||Displays clock speed of core #id (id can be set from 0 to «Number of cores minus one»). It is then possible to check the speed of each core by running as many instances of CPU-Z as necessary, using batch files for example:
cpuz0.bat: cpuz.exe -core=0
cpuz1.bat: cpuz.exe -core=1
Note that the current core can be dynamically selected by right-clicking in the CPU page, and select the target core. This feature is available from version 1.42.
||Generates output in a command prompt (Windows XP only).
CPU-Z reports my CPU running below its clock specification or the clock speed is varying.
This is the effect of the CPU power reduction mechanism : C1E (Enhanced Halt State) and/or EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology) for Intel CPUs, Cool’n’Quiet and or PowerNow! for AMD CPUs. Load your system and you will see the frequency increase to its nominal value.
CPU-Z reports a wrong CPU vcore.
Please download HWMonitor then save monitoring data (menu file -> save monitoring data) and send back the file to us via the bug report form.
CPU-Z causes a general protection fault, or freezes my system, or causes a blue screen.

How to find out if Intel VT-x or AMD-V Virtualization Technology is supported in Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows Vista or Windows 7 machine
Are you interested in Virtual Machines, Virtualization, Hypervisor, whatever name you call it and not sure if your Windows box supports Intel VT-x or AMD-V? This post tell you how to find out for yourself.
But, first the big question:
Do you need Intel VT-x or AMD-V based CPU to run Virtual Machines?
The answer is both Yes and No. Intel VT-x or AMD-V capable processors have inbuilt set of processor instruction that can handle virtualization effectively. To be able to use these instruction, they need to be enabled in BIOS. By default they are not enabled. Some say that enabling virtualization in BIOS slows down the performance of the CPU. But these days, the lag is hardly noticeable. My experience is that, enabling Inter VT or AMD-V did not slow down the performance of my computer.
So to give it to you straight, If you plan to run 64 bit virtual machines on your computer, you need a Intel VT-x or AMD-V.. But if you plan to run 32 bit virtual operating system as guest, you don’t need Intel VT-x or AMD-V CPU. Any normal CPU would work just fine.
How to check if your CPU has Intel VT-x or AMD-V?
You need to check for Intel VT-x if you are using Intel based CPU and AMD-V if you are using AMD CPU. They are the same technology offered by two different processor manufacturers.
You can check if your CPU has virtualization technology or not right from within Windows OS. All you have to do is to boot your computer if you have not done it already and follow any of the below methods.
For Windows 7 and Vista, follow from Method third onward. Method first and second is not applicable to Windows 7 and Vista. They work for Windows 8 and 10.
First method – Easiest option- Check your Task Manager
If you have Windows 10 or Windows 8 operating system, the easiest way to check is by opening up Task Manager->Performance Tab. You should see Virtualization as shown in the below screenshot. If it is enabled, it means that your CPU supports Virtualization and is currently enabled in BIOS. If it shows disabled, you need to enable it in BIOS. If you don’t see virtualization, it means that your CPU does not support virtualization.
Windows 10 task manager – performance tab – virtualization enabled screenshot
Second method – Check using
Open Windows terminal or command prompt and type the following command:
systeminfo command prompt screenshot
Below is the
systeminfo result Hyper V requirements screenshot
Third method – Use third party utility such as securAble
You can download a utility called SecurAble . This is pretty old software but still it works. It works for both Intel and AMD CPU. All you have to do is to download and run this application. Below screenshot shown you result when you run this utility. If you see hardware virtualization as Yes, it mean that you CPU supports Virtualization.
securable utility run result screenshot
Fourth method- Use utility tool provided by Intel or AMD
Intel and AMD provide their own utility which you will have to download and Run. One you run it, the result dialog box will have an entry for Vitalization. Below is the link for the utility tool for Intel and AMD and their corresponding result screenshot when you run it.
Fifth method – Use Microsoft® Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool (Works for Windows 7 and Vista and not for Windows 8 or 10)
If you have Windows 7 or Vista, Microsoft provides a utility tool called Microsoft® Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool to check if your CPU supports Hyper-V, which is a Virtualization software from Microsoft provided for free in Windows pro and above versions. Hyper-V is Microsoft’s alternate to VMware Workstation or Oracle’s Virtual Box. Download this tool (havdetectiontool.exe) and Run it. If you see something like the below screenshot, it means that your processor supports Virtualization.

The perfect tool for the job
Engineers use numerous design and manufacturing applications with varying computing requirements. It is not uncommon for organizations to purchase workstations with the same hardware configuration without considering the needs of specific users. While this uniform approach may speed up IT decision making, mismatched computing capabilities can lead to lower productivity and lower ROI.
When choosing a workstation processor, firms should prioritize the one that most effectively eliminates performance bottlenecks in the tasks that make up the user’s core workflow. For example, for tasks that do not require a lot of threads, such as 3D modeling and design, higher clock speeds should be preferred, while for multi-threaded tasks, such as generative design and rendering, a large number of CPU cores will be useful. Performance for other tasks, such as dynamic simulation, is closely related to the amount of RAM, L3 cache, and/or memory bandwidth, and these characteristics are highly dependent on the choice of processor.
Corporate Priorities and Performance Priority
Organizations and IT decision makers may prioritize a processor feature. In this article, we will look at this issue from the perspective of corporate priorities and the priority of performance when performing common tasks. Processor performance in line with corporate priorities has been slightly reduced to to provide enterprise-grade security, manageability, and reliability. Designed with performance in mind, processors are designed for users who simply want to run at top speed and prioritize performance in their core workloads. With this approach, there is an overlap of preferred options, which we will discuss next.
Returning to the workstation market, AMD now offers the most complete and powerful line of workstation processors ever. While AMD’s workstation processor offering remains limited, we’d like to take a look at the full range, explain the benefits of each processor family, and how they can help remove barriers to design workflows. Workstation users are offered three families of AMD processors, each of which has its own unique features that allow you to get the most out of professional design tools.
3D Modeling and Design
Drawing parts and working with models in 3D design systems is a single-threaded task or a task with a small number of threads. Application responsiveness and the efficiency with which the end user can perform these tasks are greatly affected by processor clock speed and the number of instructions per cycle (IPC).
Companies and IT leaders who value manageability, reliability, and security over pure performance will benefit from AMD Ryzen ™ Threadripper ™ PRO processors supporting AMD PRO technologies.
AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 3955WX 16-core processors are great for 3D design applications with a maximum clock speed of 4.3 GHz 4 and plenty of extra cores for multitasking.
For users looking for maximum performance, the AMD Ryzen™ 5000 series processors are the ideal choice for low-threading design tasks. In particular, the Ryzen™ 7 5800X processor is a great value proposition, showing the best performance in several CAD programs. 1 (as of this writing). The flagship Ryzen™ 9 5950X processor is another fantastic option with AMD’s highest Ryzen™ processor frequency of 4.9GHz and 16 cores. It is ideal for those who perform various 3D modeling tasks and other multi-threaded tasks such as rendering and generative design.
The use of software for iterative design depending on a specific combination of loads and constraints is computationally intensive. Workstations with a large number of processor cores can speed up the execution of such tasks.
AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 3995WX 64-Core Processor and Threadripper™ PRO 3975WX 32-Core Processor are ideal for generative design workloads. The 64-core 3995WX can provide the with a 44% speed advantage over two 28-core competitor processors. 2 In addition to class-leading performance, Threadripper™ PRO processors feature the aforementioned AMD PRO technologies, so IT organizations can rely on advanced security features and enterprise manageability. Another benefit of Threadripper™ PRO processors is the platform’s high memory capacity for projects that process very large datasets.
In addition, 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processors feature a huge core count. For example, the AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ 3990X processor has 64 cores, while the 3970X processor has 32 cores. While this processor family does not support AMD PRO technologies, the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen ™ Threadripper ™ processors have a slightly higher maximum frequency than equivalent Threadripper™ PRO family processors. However, users may want to run their own benchmarks to see if the higher clock speeds of 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ processors provide better performance for their particular projects, as a relatively weaker memory configuration can have a greater impact. on performance.
The AMD Ryzen™ 5000 series processors are also great for users who want to maintain maximum performance for traditional 3D design tasks and use up to 16 cores to accelerate generative design.
CAE tasks such as hydrodynamic simulation and finite element analysis are multi-threaded, i.e. the problem solution time can be reduced if a system with a processor with a large number of cores is used for the calculation. Therefore, the 64-core AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 39 processor is the ideal choice for these tasks.95WX and 32-core Threadripper™ PRO 3975WX processor.
In addition, the performance of CAE simulators is highly dependent on memory bandwidth, so the more memory channels a workstation processor supports, the better. For this reason, AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO processors with eight memory channels and support for AMD PRO technologies are the best choice for both enterprise and performance priorities.
It is well known that CPU rendering for product rendering with engines ranging from Luxion KeyShot to Chaos V-Ray is a multi-threaded process. Modern rendering engines typically use all of the system’s available processor cores, so the more cores a processor has, the better.
AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO 3995WX 64-Core and Threadripper™ PRO 32-Core 3975WX are perfect for rendering. The 64-core Threadripper™ 3995WX processor was up to 2.4 times faster than the competitor’s 28-core Intel Xeon processor W-3275 when rendering using the KeyShot engine. 3 As noted above, all AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO processors support AMD PRO technologies for data security and remote system management.
3rd Generation AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ Processors have a slightly higher maximum frequency than Threadripper™ PRO Processors; 64-core processor 39The 90X and the 32-core 3970X are great for rendering. However, some render engines may use additional memory channels, in which case Threadripper™ PRO processors are a better choice.
