GREAT little utility. Been using it for several years.

Like GPU-Z it writes to registry two enteries and removes them after session. MJ Registry Watcher report:

this is a nifty little utility for those who know little about their computers working capabilities and for those who wish to or are thinking of upgrading their computer whether it being in RAM or not

this is a must have utility!

@Buzzer: Thank CPUID instead. :) We're not portablizing software, just cataloguing it.

useless. to most of us, PORTABLE requires us to be able to run as NON-ADMIN. can't use this. can't install it. not truly portable. don't get me wrong, I use it all the time on my cluster at home, just can't use this at work or on common machines at school.

@Cattleya: Make sure you download the zip package, because the installer does the following:
"The kernel mode driver used by CPU-Z is installed on the system, that avoids to install / remove it at every run."
The portable version leaves no driver behind, just tested it.

@kc: I used to do sysadmin for a small non-profit org. 7 pc's and 2 printers, no big deal. I carried all my tools on a pendrive. Off course I had admin-rights, but this is a typical scenario a lot of us are in, so it's not entirely useless, portable is the way to go for sysadmins ;)

CPUZ is old, tired and practically useless. It's heyday was about six years ago. Speccy is a must for today.

v1.69
