How do I tell my cpu speed?

I have looked in system info and it just says:
x86 Family 6 Model 8 Stepping 6

What does that translate to?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That tells you the brand and type of processor you have. You can find the speed by Start > Run > tpe "MSInfo32" and that will bring up the Windows system info screen. Halfway down that screen will be your processor details, including the speed.

The URL below is a link to an Intel app to help you identify your CPU. I've never used it, but I'm sure it does the trick.

A freeware app I have used, which gives you more info you need to know about your processor is WCPUID, available from:

Or you could open up your case ;-)
