Hi...

Welcome to the forum

The information provided by jpollard and floppy_stuttgart above involve the use of a terminal. In case you're not familiar with this program or how it works, please see the tutorial here. If you need further assistance, let us know.

Regards...

An excellent GUI program for system information is hardinfo. It should be in your repos.

If you have KDE installed, kinfocenter is also a quite good GUI system information program.

1) There's no need to be root to run those commands
2) You're missing the leading slash for /proc in both of them
3) What's with the recommendation to go to some 3rd party site that is in no way related to the question at hand?

There's also cpuid if you want to get more technical. Caveat, has to be enabled in the kernel and probably not installed by default on many distros.

# cpuid

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo

$ cpufreq-info

Not sure what information you are looking for, but you can run any of the following from a Terminal:

lscpu

cat /proc/cpuinfo

sudo lshw -c cpu
