In Linux Mint, how to get the same information presented in the lower half of the below picture?

Output by CPU-Z in Windows:

What I've tried:
Running CPU-Z 1.66 in Wine as Windows 95, 98 and XP.
sudo lshw
sudo dmidecode

    With sudo dmidecode -t memory you can find manufacturer and part number and then it's not hard to find out CAS on the web

decode-dimms is probably what you're looking for, but apparently you need to have the correct i2c module loaded before it works. Follow this tutorial:


I got it working after these steps:

sudo aptitude install i2c-tools
sudo modprobe eeprom
sudo modprobe i2c-i801

    decode-dimms is the closest I've found, it doesn't show different frequencies supported.

  • in my case eeprom was enough (no sudo modprobe i2c-i801), running decode-dimms initially outputs "No EEPROM found, try loading the eeprom or at24 module", so I've tried as advised. Commented Nov 27, 2021 at 4:25
