How To figure Out What Processor Is In Your Computer - Geek Squad

Agent Derek Meister from The Geek Squad talked to Bill about A quick tip today: How to figure out what processor is in your computer. Every computer contains at least one processor, also known as a CPU or central processing unit. Your computer’s CPU is probably made by Intel or AMD.

Here’s how to see what CPU you have and how fast it is.

(Windows + i) On Windows 10 and 11, you can press the Windows key along with the letter "i" to bring up your system information box.

(Main Menu) Alternatively, you can bring up your Settings app from the main menu.

Whichever of those two methods you use, select "System" and then "About" to get the basic hardware information.

Now, there's other useful information here. You can see not only the processor installed but also how much system memory or RAM you have.

If you still have a Windows 7 system, this information is under "Control Panel", then "System and Security", then "System".
