PCI stands for Peripheral Component Interconnect and is a system introduced by Intel in 1992 for the purpose of attaching hardware to a computer. With the introduction of the new connectors, Intel has revolutionized the PC, especially since it soon became capable of sustaining higher data transfer rates as they are required by network interface cards, graphic controllers and other devices.
PCI-Z is a lightweight application that provides you with valuable information about the PCI devices installed on your system. As a consequence, you can start looking for the appropriate drivers and make sure all hardware is up to date and running properly on your computer.
The idea behind the application is to scan your system and identify all available information about the device. To be more precise, the program displays the vendor, full device name, subclass, PCI device and Verbose status. In a way, it is similar to the ISPCI command in Linux, but it comes with full Windows support.
You should know that the program receives regular PCI ID database updates, a feature that makes sure you can find the necessary drivers. Moreover, you should know that you have the option to search for the drivers directly from the app. However, this action runs a simple Google search in your default browser and does not guarantee that it can find your driver.
It is necessary to mention that you can send an email with the detailed report directly from the application. However, if you want to take advantage of this feature you need to set up a third party SMTP server that does not require authentication or the standard SSL/TSL security.
