CPU-Z is a popular tool on Windows to find out information about the CPU, motherboard and GPU. CPU-G tries to be an exact clone of CPU-Z for Linux.
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cpug-devs/ppa $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install cpu-g
Note: CPU-G has not seen updates in a long time. I prefer using i-Nex instead.
Tried with: CPU-G 0.11.1.1 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
