How to check the Processor Vendor and MHZ speed on Remote Computer

The following knowledgebase will explain the methods you can use to check the Processor Manufacturer and MHz speed of the processor on local and remote computer.

To check on local computer:

You can use the following methods:

  1. Connecting to Remote Registry Service
  2. Using a script

The first method is easy but includes a lot of efforts. You can navigate to the following location in registry after connecting to remote registry:


The above registry key includes the following values in right pane:

ProcessorNameString REG_SZ Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo CPU T2400 @ 1.83GHz

VendorIdentifier REG_SZ GenuineIntel

To check on a Remote Computer:

You can use the below script to check the Processor Vendor and MHz speed on a remote computer:

@echo off


Echo Computer Name, Processor Vendor Name, Processor Speed >> Result.csv

SET Proc_Vend=

SET Proc_speed=

For /F “Tokens=*” %%a In (%srvlist%) Do (

Set Comp_name=%%a

Set RegQry=”\\%%a\HKLM\HARDWRE\Description\system\CentralProcessor”

REG.exe Query %RegQry% > CheckCC.txt

Find /i “VendorIdentifier” < CheckCC.txt > StringCheck.txt

FOR /f “Tokens=3” %%b in (CheckCC.txt) DO SET Prov_Vend=%%b

Find /i “ProcessorNameString” < CheckCC.txt > StringCheck.txt

FOR /f “Tokens=3” %%b in (CheckCC.txt) DO SET Proc_speed=%%b

Echo %Comp_name, %Proc_Vend%, %Proc_Speed% >> Result.csv


The above script will check remote computer for two registry entries for Processor Vendor Name and Processor Speed and the results will be saved in a CSV format file.
