i7z – i7 (and now i3, i5) reporting tool

i7z is a small open source utility that reports Intel Core i7, i5, i3 CPU information. The information displayed covers Turbo Boost, frequencies, multipliers, … with a top-like display showing per core the current frequency, temperature and times spent in the C0/C1/C3/C6/C7 states.

There is also a graphical frontend utility included in the package which requires the Qt library.

i7z needs to be run in super user (root) mode.

Features include:

  • The tool can print information for about 2 sockets at once at the most.
  • A graphical user interface is also available.
  • Emulation of Linux’s inbuilt cpu_khz code.
  • Append to a log file.
