I-Nex is an application that gathers information for hardware components available on your system and displays it using an user interface similar to the popular Windows tool CPU-Z.
I-Nex can display information for the following components: CPU, GPU, Motherboard, Sound, Hard disks, RAM, Network and USB as well as some system info like the hostname, Linux distribution and version, Xorg, GCC, GLX versions and Linux Kernel info.

Besides being able to display hardware information, I-Nex can also generate an advanced report for which you can select what to include and optionally send the report to a service such as Pastebin (and others). It also features an option to take a screenshot of the I-Nex window directly from the application.

The difference between I-Nex and the other hardware information GUI tools available for Linux is that the information is better organized and is displayed faster (than lshw-gtk for instance). Also, the hardware information is presented in a way that’s easier to understand than other such tools.

Event Timeline

What about CPU-X which we have in repo? It mimicks CPU-Z too, but it's more actively maintained than I-Nex, which had last commit and last release about 2 years ago.
sudo eopkg it cpu-x

Yeah CPU X looks good to, it would be nice to also have the choice to use I-Nex as it's a nice tool to use if people prefer it

What are the benefits compared to cpux?

Well it's simuar and may be different or have more features but just like other software like Libre office or WPS office as one example it's good to have support for more software and choice/preferences instead of limiting users which have the choice to use both or more on other distros.
