HWiNFO32 4.46.2330 / 4.47.2333 Beta

Collects system information when it comes to the software and hardware configuration, featuring support for reports and benchmarks
HWiNFO32 is an advanced software application that diagnoses your computer's hardware and software configuration to find out its capabilities. It can also be set to benchmark the system.

No installation required

There is no setup pack involved, which makes HWiNFO32 portable. You can drop the executable file in any part of the hard disk and just click it to launch. Another option is to save HWiNFO32 to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any PC effortlessly and without previous installers. Plus, it does not create new entries in the Windows registry or Start menu.

Intuitive interface with thorough information

At startup, you can run the tool with the default configuration or view only sensors information or the summary. HWiNFO32 may take a while to load data. Detailed information revolves around the central processors, motherboard, memory, bus, video adapter, monitor, drive, audio devices, network, and ports.

Generate reports and run benchmarks

It is possible to copy data to the Clipboard or save it to a report (text, CSV, XML, HTML, MTHML), get an overview on the sensors (e.g. current, minimum, maximum and average CPU usage, temperatures), as well as to run benchmarks based on the CPU, memory or disk.

Configure program settings

The main window can be minimized to the system tray area at startup. HWiNFO32 can be set to run at every Windows boot until further notice, automatically check for software updates online, select the drive scan and CPU clock measurement mode, and so on.

Evaluation and conclusion

Unless it is performing benchmarks, HWiNFO32 uses low CPU and RAM, so it does not affect the PC's overall performance. We have not come across any problems in our tests, since it did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. To sum it up, HWiNFO32 is a necessary tool to any serious PC users who wants to monitor the status of their computers, accessible to both novices and experts.
