Advice 1: How to check the performance of your computer

Modern user is often faced with the problem of "braking" of your computer. Today we will look at two ways of checking the performance of the system: the first – with the help of Windows task Manager familiar to most users of desktop PU, the second – with the help of Windows experience index, not less convenient, but little known way.
Verification of performance.
You will need
  • The computer installed Windows system, the standard application of this system, this guide
Instruction

Windows feature useful utility, which is called "performance Index". This product measures the performance of your computer, based on five key points, and shows the rating of each of them, and, of course, common. Moreover, the overall rating cannot be higher than the minimum index among the components. At the moment, the performance score is calculated with values from 1 to 5.9. And such assessments as 6.0 and above Microsoft left for later, that is for more powerful computers.

In order to use this application, you need to:
Log-in control panel;

To run the application "Index of performance";

Click on the button "Check";
Thus, if the Windows experience index showed a score below 3, you should think about upgrading or replacing their cars for new ones. If showed above the 3, then you have nothing to worry about.

Advice 2 : How to find out computer performance

The choice of the method for testing performance of a computer depends on the specific task and activities of the user. A check is performed internally by the operating system or external programs.
check the performance of the computer
You will need
  • What you need to check: the computer and stable Internet connection, preferably unlimited with speed of 256 KW/s (higher is better). The Internet is necessary to download to an external checking programs.
Instruction
1
In order to determine the performance of the computer is "nominal", that is designed by the manufacturer of hardware and software, you can view the settings of the computer using the following sequence of actions.
Click the right mouse button on the shortcut "My computer".
2
If the shortcut is not displayed on the desktop, go to "start menu" and click as the right mouse button on the string "Computer" or "My computer" - depending on the operating system the label may have a different view.
From the opened menu select "Properties".
3
After viewing the main parameters (in addition to information about the performance and the full name of the processor, but here you specify the base index of computer, type of system, amount of installed RAM and other info) by clicking on the button "performance Index" to view the performance of individual system components.
To see the utilization of RAM and CPU at any given moment using the task Manager - to run it you have to press Ctrl+Alt+Del. If the computer has Windows 7, pressing shortcut key displays a menu, where in addition to start task Manager you are prompted to restart, shut down your computer or send it to "sleep".
4
For a more detailed, "real" evaluation of the performance of the computer is to use an external program such as everest , 3D mark (for 3D graphics and games), pc mark cpu mark and others. If you want to know whether the performance of the computer for a specific game, you can either put the program Fraps or the built-in game benchmarks. To indirectly assess the performance of the computer on the principle of "enough - not enough" to solve a certain task is possible as follows - to start deframentation disk or archiving a large number of small files simultaneously with the selected objective (game design or imaging program). If the task is performed appropriate for the user rate - hence, the performance index is quite high.

Advice 3 : How to check performance

The performance of a computer depends on many factors. As used in the system hardware and software, and the level of congestion of the computer. To check the performance there are many methods and programs. The article considers the simplest of them.
Check speed by means of the OS
Instruction
1
The easiest way to check the performance of your computer using the built-in Windows operating system tools.
Press CTRL ALT DEL.
In the resulting window, select "task Manager"
Select the tab "Performance".
In the opened window presents the parameters for the use of CPU resources (and swap file).
If the processor utilization is close to 100%, it is recommended to go to the neighboring (to the left) the tab "Processes" and find out – which process overload the CPU.
To manually search for such a process, you can sort any column in ascending or descending order of the presented values simply by clicking the mouse on the corresponding heading (in this case "CPU").

To get more detailed information about the performance of your computer will need a special "test" software. For example, the program Everest.
Install (or copy) the program Everest to your computer.
Run the program.
In the lower part of the left "tree" menu, select "Test".
In the popup menu select the item most suited to your needs, for example, "Read from memory".
Then click "Update" and in few seconds you will receive detailed information about the performance of your computer.

Advice 4 : How to know clock speed of the processor

Long gone are the days when the frequency of the processor was written in his name. Changed CPU technologies, increased competition, and the company began to hide the frequency, showing the audience only some ratings, invented by the company itself.
How to know clock speed of the processor
Instruction
1
However, each conditional ranking is quite an ordinary clock frequency. Now on the market of processors two main competitor is Intel and AMD. Each of them has its own line of processors and their own symbols. And although manufacturers do not hide the true frequency of the processorif it is not named, it can be found on the manufacturers ' websites http://www.intel.com and http://www.amd.com.
2
If the CPU is already installed in the computer, to see its frequency is possible when enabled. In that case, you turn on the computer showing the logo of the motherboard, just press Tab and you will see a POST screen, which is visible from the model of the processor. However, not all versions of BIOS display with its frequency.
3
Even know the frequency of the processor by clicking the right mouse button on "My computer" and selecting "Properties". In the "General" tab you can see the type of CPU and its frequency.
4
However, the most complete information about the processor can be obtained by downloading a small free program CPU-Z from the manufacturer's website http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html. Download the archive and unzip it. The program does not require installation, just run the file cpuz.exe and you will get a comprehensive data about your CPU. Here you can see not only the clock frequency and the name of the model, but core type, revision, stepping, voltage, fabrication process, which produced the processor, number of cores supported by the user, the frequency of the bus, cache size and more. In addition, the software gives full information about your motherboard, memory and graphics card.
