Last updated: March 10, 2016


The development of CPU-G, a CPU-Z hardware stat tool for Linux, now is continued!

CPU-G is a simple tool that collects and displays information about your CPU, RAM, Motherboard, some general information about your system and more.

This is an application initially developed by Fotis Tsamis and subsequently by Michael Schmöller, Michał Głowienka, Michał Olber. Atareao Team have now decided to continue this project, port it to GTK3 + and improve it as much as possible.

New version of CPU-G is available in PPA for Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 15.10, 14.04, and their derivatives.

How to Install CPU-G:

Select download the latest .deb package of the tool at the link below and click install via Software Center:

For those who want to receive future updates for this software via System Updater, launch terminal and run below command to add the atareao team PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao

Type in your password (no visual feedback) when it asks and hit Enter to continue.
