You can pull the information from WMI via PowerShell:
PS> WmiObject -class win32_processor -Property Name, NumberOfCores, NumberOfLogicalProcessors | Format-List -Property Name, NumberOfCores, NumberOfLogicalProcessors
Will produce something like:
Name : AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor NumberOfCores : 4 NumberOfLogicalProcessors : 4
-computername <computername> argument and you can pull the info from networked computers as well.
Try the following from a command prompt:
wmic cpu get name,numberofcores,numberoflogicalprocessors
As noted by techie007 in his answer, you can pull information from remote computers by adding a
cpu, and replacing
<computername> with the name of the host you would like to query. The
/node: parameter can be used on any WMIC query, not just this one.
Hope that helps.
You can use a software such as Everest, or the freeware CPU-Z to find out your system specifications. If you boot a Linux Live CD, then just open the System Monitor.
