HWiNFO is an app for IT professionals to check systems in real-time and to find in-depth hardware information. The app presents this information in a variety of formats. It also provides status logins, can integrate with other tools, and is also compatible with DOS systems. An alternative program to diagnose hardware problems is CPU-Z.
REALiX is the developer for HWiNFO for Windows. This program is a free download compatible with Windows XP, 7, 8 and 10. A list of supported processors, graphics and chipsets is available on the developer’s website.
IT professionals use HWiNFO to analyse and track system hardware. It supports many systems, like DOS, Microsoft Windows 95 up to Windows 10 and platforms such as i386-Xeon Platinum.
It displays the extensive hardware information in an expandable hierarchy. Use it to compile detailed inventory reports or check for hardware-related parameters. HWiNFO monitors your system and hardware health through parameters such as CPU, GPU, drives, mainboard and more. It can detect overheating, performance loss, overload and failure prediction.
Get a complete hardware hierarchy report or a summary overview and export it as an XML, CSV or HTML format. The system monitor provides customisable graphs, OSD, and tray icons. Customise alerts for specific parameters and integrate the software with applications and third-party extensions.
Use it free for personal and non-commercial use. For commercial use, you can buy a pro license, which also gives you extra features. Choose between the ‘Engineer’ or ‘Corporate’ license, with a discount for educational institutions.
Various add-ons are also available. Use them to integrate the software with other platforms such as Riva Tuner, Rainmeter and Samurize. Or, you can get a convenient sidebar gadget to display any sensor value.
The GenericLogViewer analyses and compares sensor log files which can be compiled into diagrams or view them side by side. The Online Report Converter/Viewer lets you upload the HWiNFO XML reports and view them as an HTML page. Additionally, you can get the HWiNOF portable version. All the add-ons are available on the developer’s website.
