How to determine Processor Speed?

I'm taking inventory of about 20 computers at a small business and I would like to note the processor speed. When I go to computer properties, most say something like Pentium 4 2.6 ghz or AMD XP 1700+, but a few just say AMD or AMD XP.

Does anyone know approximately what processor speed these are or compare to?

Thanks!

go to http://gtopala.com and download siw. As long as all the proper drivers are installed on the PC it'll show you the specs of it.

>> Best guess on approximate speed of AMD XP?

Hard to say without the +xxxx number, but for an XP model, between 1.2 and 2GHz (off the top of my head)

A quick look from the link below shows:
1500+ = 1333MHz (1.3GHz)
2700+ = 2167MHz (2.16GHz)

Download and put on a jumpdrive or store in email and install on each machine. Gives you all kinds of info about the CPU. Hope this helps.

Are any of these executable without installing additional software on the PC? I just need to check it one time and don't really want additional software on client machines.

Yes.
I have CPU-Z on a bootable floppy disk, for running on different machines. I pretty sure CPU-ID is on one also.

It is a single executable file that doesn't need to be installed. So after running it all you need to do is delete it, or you could run it from a floppy or network drive. There is also a installable version, but that only copies 1 file to the program files directory and adds it to the menu... Just try it, it is free.
