Searches Intel's ARK site for processor information

Project Description

This completely unofficial script will perform a search of Intel’s ARK site for processor information. Using the script is fairly straightforward:


From PyPi:

pip install arksearch

or via git:

git clone
cd arksearch
python install


  • Search for a processor, such as the E3-1230
  • Choose the exact processor from a list
  • Read the data printed below

Here’s a brief example:

$ arksearch E3-1230
Found 5 processors...
[0] Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1230 v5 (8M Cache, 3.40 GHz)
[1] Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1230L v3 (8M Cache, 1.80 GHz)
[2] Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1230 v3 (8M Cache, 3.30 GHz)
[3] Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1230 v2 (8M Cache, 3.30 GHz)
[4] Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1230 (8M Cache, 3.20 GHz)
