The Hardware information dialog box gives you a summary of the hardware components detected on your computer as well as their current usage percentage. You can also run the hardware benchmark tool from the Hardware information dialog box.

When performance doesn't match your expectation, use this information to find out which aspect of your system is causing the bottleneck. If your video card has reached its limits, display less video streams.

Video card information is not available if you are connected to your computer through remote desktop.

The GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) usage percentage is shown only if your video card supports hardware acceleration and if that feature is turned on in the Security Desk video options. If your computer has multiple video cards, click the Acceleration drop-down list to pick the one you want to monitor.

For more information about running the hardware benchmark tool, see Using the hardware benchmark tool.
