Intel Processor Frequency ID Utility 4.6

Found this over on the Intel site, while trying to identify what kind of processor was in a friends computer (don't you love remote diagnostics via the phone, their box reports x86 family 6 model 8 stepping 1 from Win98, which I thought was kind of suspicious, and didn't want to reboot to see the bios startup screens for that kind of info... so I told them to download the Intel ID utility), and noticed in the process that this utility had been updated on the 10th May 2002.

The Intel Processor Frequency ID Utility was developed to enable consumers the ability to identify and, in some circumstances, determine if their Intel processor is operating at the correct and rated frequency intended by Intel.

Beginning with the Pentium processor, this utility provides consumers with the ability to determine standard CPU identification of Intel processors. In addition, supported processors can utilize the Frequency Test feature of the utility to help determine if a processor has been overclocked.

This version of the Intel Processor Frequency ID Utility has been updated to support the following new processors :-

  • Intel Xeon Processor
  • Pentium 4 processors
  • Mobile Intel Pentium 4 processors
  • Pentium III processors
  • Mobile Pentium III processors with Intel SpeedStep™ technology
  • Pentium III Xeon processors
  • Intel Celeron processors with 66, 100, 133, and 400 MHz system memory bus products
Also added is a new processor identification functionality (CPUID).


  • OS's supported - Windows 98, ME, NT 4.0, 2000 and XP.

    Windows 95 and Windows NT 3.51 are no longer supported. Use bootable version of the Intel Processor Frequency ID Utility for systems which have Windows 95 or Windows NT 3.51 installed.

  • The Intel Processor Frequency ID Utility also has the ability to determine the frequency of each processor in a multiprocessor system.
