    PowerShell script for CPU information, incl. CPUID

    With all this mess with the newfound Spectre and Meltdown hardware-based vulnerabilities, users look for solutions from both Microsoft and CPU vendors.
    The microcode updates, posted almost daily, are released based on CPUID. The CPUID signature is something that cannot be easily found from the average user. Even excellent utilities like CPU-Z do not provide this information.

    So, I created a little PowerShell script to get basic CPU information, including the CPUID signature.

    Download the file and extract the included "CPU_info.ps1" script on your desktop.

    Open PowerShell and run the following commands:

    cd $Home\Desktop
    Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process –force

    You will get an output similar to that.

    Feel free to use and make changes to the script, to suit your needs.

    I hope that helps somebody. :)
