Getting system information
Posted on 1998-06-25
I am writing a VC++ 5.0 application. I need to figure out
some system information:
1. who manufactured the CPU (Intel, AMD, Cyrix, ...) ?
2. Whether a older chip has been updated using an "overdrive" chip, e.g., a 486 has been upgraded to Pentium (586)?
3. The speed of the CPU
4. Whether the Pentium chip is a Pentium, Pentium Pro, or Pentium II and whether they are using MMX technology?
Note: I rated the question 50 points to handle partial answers. If you answer all 4 questions, I will raise
it to 100 points.
