    Processor & Memory Information

    Hello All,

    I've a W2KP. How do I know if the Processor has a 32 or a 64 bit data bus width? Where is this information stored?

    How do I find, what type of memory I've, like SDR-SDRAM - DDR-SDRAM or something else? Where is this information stored? How many bits are used for addressing memory cells? How many bits are stored in a memory cell? What is the data bus width for the memory?

    Is it possible to view the contents of Registers, L1/L2 Cache, and RAM?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    What processor do you have?

    How do I find, what type of memory I've, like SDR-SDRAM - DDR-SDRAM or something else?
    Most BIOSes will tell you this info.
    Where is this information stored?
    It isn't or else it's in the BIOS.
    How many bits are used for addressing memory cells?
    That depends on the type of processor used.
    How many bits are stored in a memory cell?
    Not sure what you mean.
    What is the data bus width for the memory?
    That depends on the mainboard and processor type.

    Is it possible to view the contents of Registers, L1/L2 Cache, and RAM?

    Not sure about the cache but a debugger will show you the registers and could be used to 'browse' your RAM.

    Go to www.cpuid.com
    Get cpu-z it will give you more information than you will ever want to know.

    Given the general direction of your interest you might like to get:

    Belarc Advisor

    SiSoft Sandra

    Both tools give you a lot of underlying information about your system. Belarc has a nive feature that identifies Windows patches that have/haven't worked, and Sandra has some nice proactive benchmarking tools as well as system information.
