    Ever needed to quickly find out specific info on your PC, with these simple commands you can do just that. Quickly and easily find BIOS, motherboard or CPU information.

    If you want to get info about your system's BIOS, then type this command
    wmic bios get name,serialnumber,version

    This will tells you the name if your BIOS, current version and it's serial number if there is any.
    wmic csproduct get name,identifyingnumber,uuid

    This command will tell you the system motherboard (that happen to be the name) and it's UUID
    wmic cpu get name,CurrentClockSpeed,MaxClockSpeed

    If you want to quickly find out what's the CPU clock speed, you can do the following, also if you have turbo boost CPUs you can find out what's the Max Clock Speed your system is capable of for the current configuration. Of course you can always overclock your CPU and that will too reflect the change.
    wmic cpu get name,CurrentClockSpeed,MaxClockSpeed /every:1

    If you do have dynamic clock speed running, then add this line, will refresh and monitor the Clock speed every 1 second. Or you can set to however you would like.

    For more info about wmic command see Microsoft's documentation.
