CPU-M Benchmark is a tiny and useful application developed to test the capabilities of your computer when it comes to the CPU and system memory. It can be handled by power users.
After a quick installation procedure that does not need special attention from the user, you are welcomed by a standard window with an uncomplicated layout, representing CPU-M Benchmark's interface.
In order to perform a benchmark, all you have to do is specify the total threads and select the CPU core number. The result can be submitted to the MajorShare.com website, thus you can compare it with the ones of other computers, and find out the clock, BUS, core, threads and processor details.
CPU-M Benchmark also shows data concerning the operating system, namely the processor, current CPU level and memory usage. Plus, you can view a history of run tests.
When it comes to the CPU, you can get additional information regarding the clock speed, caption, data width, manufacturer, total cores, architecture type, L2 and L3 cache size, current voltage, BUS speed, revision, total logical processors and socket. Advanced details revolve around the CPU's manufacturer ID string, which consists of the EBX, EDX and ECX features and values.
As far as memory information goes, CPU-M Benchmark displays the size, DRAM frequency, data width, type, type details and form factor, along with physical memory values (e.g. capacity, caption, install date, memory type, model, device locator). Unfortunately, you cannot copy any data to the Clipboard or export it to an external file for further evaluation.
The application is pretty low-demanding concerning the system resources, and carries out tests rapidly, without causing the OS to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. All in all, CPU-M Benchmark integrates an impressive data package of the computer's CPU and memory details.
