Mac/Linux/Windows : Get CPU information from command line

Writing these down here for future references, will be handy with comes to identifying a machine's CPU information during system maintenance time. Below are the command line tools to get the CPU information in Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.


$cat /proc/cpuinfo

Mac OS X:

$sysctl -n machdep.cpu.brand_string

Windows 8 and above:

C:>wmic cpu full /format:list

NOTE: For Windows, without the /format:list ... the output result will be almost impossible to read. You can choose to use /format:htable for HTML, /format:csv for csv format or /format:xml for xml format as well.
