(THIS IS A FORK OF https://github.com/pdxmholmes/cpuid-node)
cpuid-git has been tested on Windows 64-bit, Macintosh OSX (Darwin) 64-bit and Linux 3.x 64-bit. All 32-bit platforms should work, but I have not tested them. If you do and it does not work, please file a bug report.
cpuid-git requires a natively compiled binary component, so it is not suitable for usage in the browser environment.
cpuid-git's most useful feature for many Node users will be it's detailed overview of the logical versus physical cores. As things like cluster come to the forefront, and "multi-threaded Node" becomes a reality, this information can be invaluable for worker pool performance.
Updated version by terorie supporting the newest processor instructions.
Now based on a git submodule of the original libcpuid.
const cpuid = require('cpuid-git');const cpuidInfo = cpuid();
cpuid is one function, which takes no arguments, and returns an object with properties representing the CPUID data.
