SysInfo Screen Shot



SysInfo is an application for Motorola 680x0 based Classic Amiga and is used for getting information about the system like OS and library versions, hardware revisions and stuff.

Exactly 19 years after version 3.24 of SysInfo it's time for an update! The original author Nic Wilson has kindly given me permission to continue the maintenance of this old classic.

  • SysInfo.lha lha arhive.
  • SysInfo.adf bootable disk image.

    Known problems

    The benchmark results provided by SysInfo is currently not verified on M68060 Amigas and useless in emulators set up to emulate faster than early classic amigas!

    I want more bug reports! Mail it to SysInfo (at) d0.se or use the contact form.

    While 4.3 doesn't crash when started up on 68EC060 or 68LC060, it does crash when the speed test is performed. Do you need a hand with fixing this issue? Thanks!

    Using sysinfo on MiSTer/Minimig returns a '68040 Installation Alert' even though the core is set to 68020/AGA.

    My 8372A 1MB 'Fat Agnus' is detected as being in PAL mode regardless of the state of pin 41 (which determines if it boots into 50hz or 60hz mode) and regardless of the value of the oscillator on the motherboard (I have the original NTSC one installed; 28.63636 MHz. I live in the US).
    Also, when booted with Agnus pin 41 tied high (50Hz boot), it detects an 'ECS DENISE', despite being an 8362 R8 (apparently the last OCS Denise revision). When Agnus pin 41 is grounded (60Hz mode, as was shipped on my NTSC Ami

    xd, opensource is under investigation and may happen but never on github.

    Hey, did you think about opensourcing Sysinfo and putting it into Github?

    Yes 'Nightshft', it's easy to do but hard to license to make it legal!

    Sysinfo is an awesome Benchmark for the Amiga. Thanks for maintaining it! Creating an ADF is easy. Use a WB1.3 Disk. Strip all you dont need (fonts, printer, ...) which should give you >50% free. Copy Sysinfo to it and you'r done.

    sysinfo does not see the PowerPC processor?

    Could you please expand the machine results box by 1 or 2 character in the "speed comparisons" section and also expand the mips results by 2 chars so ppl using high speed emulators dont get their results displayed wrong/chopped off, it would be nice to see them even though the numbers are inacurate in emulators.

    i would like to make a patched (for Vampire & non fpu) and standard version of sys info on .adf and upload it to Aminet. would have a problem with this cheers mike.

    at 2017-04-03 22:48:04:
    Please, don?t distribute any .adf! SysInfo requires SetPatch to work properly on many configurations and I?m in the process of obtaining a license.
    I have a .adf solution ready as soon as I have the license.

    Please wait for the official version...

    You can contact me if you want to join a closed beta.

    To use this programm on an Amiga 2000 I would need an adf file, so this is not provided?
    I did copy it to an emppty adf floppydisk using FS-UAE but under FS-UAE it works but when I copy the adf file to an USB Stick using it with Gotek on an Amiga 2000 the floppy is allways empty. So why is not an adf provided? I do not have internet access on my amiga and I think the programm is used on a lot of amigas without internet access. So every one has to do that task? I even can not do it? How do you deal with it

    One small suggestion.

    It would be nice to have also an adf download, like sysinfo.adf.
    That would be more straightforward to use from WinUAE without a virtual harddisk.

    Screen promotion doesn\'t work properly if being used on an Amithlon system.
    Graphics are shrunk and buttons are corrupted in Ver. 4.0.
