Speccy, the freeware tool that provides information about the inner workings of a computer, has been updated to version 1.17 this week. Piriform, the developer behind the application, explained that with this update, it worked hard to add support for the latest chipsets and processors from Intel. This year Intel’s hardware line-up saw some significant changes, so updating Speccy to ensure it can detect the latest hardware was a must. And that is precisely what Piriform did with Speccy v. 1.17

The aforementioned Speccy 1.17 is available for download right here on FindMySoft – here’s the link.
If you’re already using Speccy and the option to automatically check for updates is enabled, you will receive an update prompt.


Here are the release notes for Speccy v. 1.17, as provided by Piriform:
  • Added Computer type (Desktop, Laptop) to Operating System section.
  • Updated CPU detection for latest Intel Core i7 models.
  • Improved compatibility with LGA 2011 motherboards.
  • Added external drive information to Peripherals.
  • Improved detection of Sharing and Discovery for printers.
  • Improved exception handling.
  • Added language support for Kurdish.
  • Minor tweaks and fixes.

Speccy, in case you’re not familiar with the application, is a tool that provides you with information on your computer’s hardware components. If the question “what’s inside this computer?” ever crossed your mind, Speccy is the right tool that will give you an answer. It will tell you more about the computer’s processor, RAM memoery, motherboard, graphics card, hard and optical drives, sound card, peripherals, network, and operating system.

All the functionality Speccy has to offer comes free of charge – you don’t have to part with your hard earned money to use the application. But if you want to do that, spend money I mean, you can make a donation to support Speccy’s development. Or you can pay for a Speccy Professional or Speccy Business Edition license.
