Server Core - How to find out simple things...

Can anyone tell me how to find out what speed of processor is installed on a Windows Server Core installation? Normally you can just use the system properties to view this, but that's not possible on Server Core.

Thanks in advance!

    If you have access to the server's command prompt, just type in:

    Hi pzozulka,
    That's a great command! I wasn't aware of it, thanks. Now for bonus points, is there any way to get it to show what the processor model is, in friendly output, that is "Intel Core 2 Duo" instead of "FamilyX ModelX SteppingX"?

    Sorry, not that I am aware of.

    SystemInfo displays all the data of the system's configuration. You can also try WinMSD command, but I think it will show the same thing. To get more details you should try 3rd party software.
