System information utility for PC
Futuremark Systeminfo is a free utility tool developed by Futuremark for PC. This software provides users with information about their computer systems. A component of the benchmark programs, 3DMark and PCMark, it scans for hardware and running process to get details on them for benchmarking purposes.
Similar to CPU-Z or HWMonitor, Futuremark Systeminfo can provide essential information on PC systems to identify hardware IDs or diagnose for any possible performance issues or hardware malfunctions that could cause damage to internal components. It can perform various tests and can export any data that it collects.
How does Futuremark Systeminfo work?
Futuremark Systeminfo is really intended to be used in tandem with the developer's various benchmarking tools, such as 3DMark or PCMark. Think of it as doing a preliminary diagnostic scan to collect information about your system before running a benchmark test. However, given the amount of information that it can pull, it can serve as a viable standalone tool for reference purposes.
There are three types of tests that you can run using this tool. You can use the SystemInfo Data and Monitoring Data tests to collect information about your system hardware and your running processes, respectively. Meanwhile, use the Direct Query test to gain details about your CPU and GPU name, vendor, core counts, clock speeds, and many others. It also automatically generates results to an XML file for your reference.
Head over to the Advanced tab, and you can select which information the tool will scan for when running its various tests. It also keeps track of all the events that happen during tests in the Log tab. Just note that depending on the number of items that you have selected in the advanced sections, the duration of the rest can run variably.
A handy system information utility
In summary, despite being intended for use with various Futuremark benchmarking tools, Futuremark Systeminfo can serve as a standalone tool that is capable of providing a good amount of information about your system and all the different components that make it up. Results are automatically generated for convenience and you get good control over what type of information it will look for. Recommended.
