HWiNFO64 is a powerful system information utility that gathers important data on the computer's hardware components, such as sensor information and S.M.A.R.T. attributes.

Rapid installer and neatly organized UI

The setup procedure is a fast and easy task that does not require special attention. At startup it is possible to set HWiNFO64 to show only sensors or only the summary. You may also enter the settings panel from this area.

Loading all devices may take a while. They are organized in a tree view where you can access information related to the central processor, motherboard, memory, bus, video adapter, monitor, drives audio, network and ports.

Investigate device information and create detailed reports

For instance, it is possible to find out the standard and enhanced features for the processor, BIOS version, internal graphics support, each memory row's serial number and refresh rate, processor clock, graphics driver information, monitor width and height and supported video modes, drive S.M.A.R.T. attributes, audio driver data, along with network MAC address and maximum link speed. You can create reports with a preferred file type between LOG, CSV, XML, HTML, MHTML and TXT with any selected computer areas or everything.

Analyze sensor information to oversee the PC's health status

HWiNFO64 also shows sensor-related data to help users figure out the best course of action when it comes to upgrading hardware components, for example. They may also monitor hard disk temperatures for each core to prevent overheating. Sensor information focuses on the GPU, HDD, CPU, RAM and others. It is possible to configure their settings by changing the temp measurement unit, refresh rate, automatic logging, tray icon integration for preferred components, notifications (e.g. maximum temp reached), and much more.

Evaluation and conclusion

HWiNFO64 does not hog system resources and has a great response time. It worked smoothly in our tests without causing the operating system to hang, crash or pop up error messages. All in all, HWiNFO64 is very thorough when it comes to evaluating the computer's inner workings, and it turns out to be a great help to power users concerned with their PC's maintenance.

Those who want to bypass the installer and run the tool directly from a pen drive may resort to Portable HWiNFO64 instead. Owners of 32-bit Windows can use HWiNFO32.
