Simplistic yet fancy CPU architecture fetching tool cpu1


cpufetch currently supports x86 CPUs (both Intel and AMD CPUs)

Platform Intel AMD Notes
Linux ✔️ ✔️ Prefered platform
Windows ✔️ ✔️ Some information may be missing.
Colors will be used if supported
macOS Untested

Usage and installation


There is a cpufetch package available in Arch Linux (cpufetch-git).

If you are in other distro, you can build cpufetch from source (see below)


In the releases section you will find some cpufetch executables compiled for Windows. Just download and run it from Windows CMD.

Building from source

Just clone the repo and use make to compile it

git clone
cd cpufetch

The Makefile is designed to work on both Linux and Windows.


Here are more examples of how cpufetch looks on different CPUs.



Colors and style

By default, cpufetch will print the CPU art with the system colorscheme. However, you can always set a custom color scheme, either specifying Intel or AMD, or specifying the colors in RGB format:

./cpufetch --color intel (default color for Intel)
./cpufetch --color amd (default color for AND)
./cpufetch --color 239,90,45:210,200,200:100,200,45:0,200,200 (example)

In the case of setting the colors using RGB, 4 colors must be given in with the format: [R,G,B:R,G,B:R,G,B:R,G,B]. These colors correspond to CPU art color (2 colors) and for the text colors (following 2). Thus, you can customize all the colors.


cpufetch fetches all of the information using the CPUID x86 instruction. There are, however, some cases where the CPU does not support fetching some needed information. In this case, cpufetch will use /sys/devices/system/cpu in Linux as a fallback. If cpufetch is running on Windows and CPUID does not give all the data, cpufetch won’t be able to show it. I hope this can be fixed in the future

Bugs or improvements

There are many open issues in github (see issues). Feel free to open a new one report a issue or propose any improvement in cpufetch


I would like to thank Gonzalocl and OdnetninI for their help, running cpufeth in many different CPUs they have access to, which makes it easier to debug and check the correctness of cpufetch.
