Info updated on:

CPU Dasher is intended to show information about the specifications and power of your computer’s hardware. In this respect, the tool allows querying about such parts as the CPU and the GPU. Additionally, it supports benchmarking your machine in terms of performance by executing various types of calculations.

The application has a simple-to-use, though rather technical-looking, interface. There are separate windows (I wish they were tabs) for displaying varied information about the device. In this regard, it can provide data related to the central processing unit (CPU), the cache and the graphical processing unit (GPU). In this respect, the tool lists different technologies, and by selecting one of them, it lets you know if your CPU supports it. As to benchmarking, CPU Dasher can make calculations based on common algorithms, such as matrix multiplication, sum and image processing. In all cases, you get results about the maximum, minimum and average times spent in the calculations, which facilitates comparing your CPU power with other models.

In short, CPU Dasher provides relevant data to help you know about your hardware and take appropriate decisions, like buying a computer component. It is a shame that CPU Dasher cannot monitor hardware performance over time, which would allow it to graphically show such important data as memory, GPU and CPU usage. The product is available from the Mac App Store, but, regrettably, there is no trial version.
