Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool is an official benchmarking and diagnostic tool created by Intel Corporation that allows users of all knowledge levels to check the functionality status of their Intel CPU and view many of its technical parameters. Built from the ground up to be as simple to use as possible, this lightweight application can perform a wide array of quick benchmarks and generate a report that will clearly showcase the current operational status of the CPU.

This app can be used in several situations, but most often it is used either when user wants to check if their CPU is performing as officially specified, after purchase of a second-hand CPU, or for checking if business PC configurations are ready to be deployed in the office.
  • Verify the functionality of all the cores of the Intel® Processor
  • Check for the brand identification
  • Verify the processor operating frequency
  • Test specific processor features
  • Perform a stress test on the processor
The core procedures this app performs are brand identification test, verification of processor operating frequency, the functionality of all cores, test all specific processor features, and finally, do a long-term stability stress test.

The user interface of the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool is a bit cluttered and full of information, but thankfully the entire procedure of checking the CPU status is as simple as possible. Upon starting the app, it will automatically start the scanning procedure. Users are highly recommended to not interact with the PC during this time, as it is best to leave the PC alone while every part of its CPU architecture is being tested.

After the scan is complete, users will be presented with the listing of tests, the result of the tests, a log listing of the testing procedure, and a complete summary with a bright green PASS or strong red FAILED depending on the diagnostic results. By default, the checkmark option for “Stop Testing on Fail” is activated, so users will be immediately notified if some part of the CPU function has failed. In addition to running a full diagnostic test, users can also opt to run a dedicated temperature monitoring test that will test if the CPU has adequate cooling.

In the dropdown menus on the top of the app, users can also select a long-term “Burn-in-Test” that can really push the CPU to its maximum working potential during a prolonged period of time.

All in all, Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool is a competent diagnostic tool that can help both novices and seasoned technicians to test the stability and functionality of any modern Intel CPU chip. The app is 100% FREE and can be used on incredible 81 product lines of Intel processors, from the old Atom processors to the latest Xeon server CPUs.
