CPUFetch – A simple CLI tool for fetching CPU information on Linux

CPUFetch is a simple command line tool, a bit like Neofetch, but for fetching the CPU architecture on Linux, Windows, macOS and Android.

This tool outputs the manufacturer’s logo (Intel, AMD, etc.) along with basic CPU information such as:

  • CPU name.
  • Microarchitecture.
  • Semiconductor technology in nanometer (nm) units.
  • Maximum frequency.
  • Number of cores and threads.
  • Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX)
  • Fusion-Multiplication-Addition (FMA)
  • L1, L2, L3 cache size.
  • Peak performance.

It supports custom colors and offers several styles (themes). It makes it easy to take screenshots of CPU information and share it with your friends.
