Finding CPU speed in Windows 95 or DOS

By sethg ·
Is there a way to find out the processor's speed while in Windows 95 without re-starting the PC and going into BIOS? Is there a way through DOS?

No you will not be able to do this without rebooting.
Intel has a utility that can be downloaded
I currently use a utility program called SiSoft Sandra that will give you details about your computer that can be downloaded from net www.zdnet.com/download or www.sysopt.com/sandra

Ditto. The only way to find the cpu speed is to reboot and check it in the bio's . There are serval programs avaible that you can run in widows that will tell you. I use Norton system works.

Im not sure about on the local machine without restarting, but you can go to Intel and download a small application called Intel Processor Frequency ID Utility. This will give you all the info of your processor: cache size, reported speed, expected,etc. To find it do a search
and in the field type

processor id

This will take you right to it. Hope this helps.
