*. Operating system.
*. CPU type and speeds.
*. Installed RAM.
*. Boot information (logs, etc).
*. VGA drivers and hardware details.
*. HDD and Optical drive information.
*. Network interfaces, etc.....
But it is not the cool thing about it actually. With HardInfo, you can easily test how well your hardware performs (benchmarks) such as ...
*. Various CPU tests.
*. RAM tests.
*. HDD tests.
*. GPU (VGA card) tests.
*. USB/PCI/CD-DVD device testing.
*. Printers, are just a few to name.
If you have a buggy system, meaning both bad drivers and bad (physically damaged) hardware, then when running these tests, most of the time the system should crash!.
So, benchmark testing is actually a great way to find out how healthy your OS/PC really is as well. If you use Ubuntu then you can easily install it using a Terminal command.
Open your terminal and issue the below command...
sudo apt-get install hardinfo
