On many occasions, either out of simple curiosity, or because you need to know a component of your hardware to verify compatibility, make any modifications, or look for the appropriate driver, you will need to know what hardware components has your team.

Well, in Linux there are many tools For this, and I am not referring to the command line ones that we have already mentioned in other articles on this blog, but to tools with an intuitive graphical interface and loaded with information in the purest style of AIDA64, or Windows CPU-Z ...

The most outstanding tools for Linux in which to obtain information about your hardware without using commands are:

  • CPU-X: surely you also know CPU-Z, a very popular utility in Windows for those who perform benchmarks or for those who do overclocks. In addition, it is used to know the details of your CPU, as well as the memory and motherboard, and even the temperature of the sensors. Well, if you are looking for an alternative, CPU-X is what you are looking for. It is practically a clone of the Microsoft version of the system.
  • I Nex: It is another solution that can be installed on several popular distros and that will offer you very detailed information about your software. Although its appearance is quite similar to that of CPU-X or CPU-Z, with tabs, but its functions go beyond that, and in that case it looks more like programs like Hardinfo or AIDA64, with very detailed information on all your hardware .
  • hard info: If you have used Windows before and have tried software like AIDA64, Everest, and the like, this program will surely remind you of them a lot. It has a simple graphical interface almost identical to them, and with almost the same functions to obtain all kinds of details of the system, hard disk, RAM, motherboard, CPU, network adapter, monitor, and much more.
