i don't know of such a command... but you'll find usefull informations with commands like banner and .properties (used in the dev tree of the OBP).

You can use show-devs to display the complete device tree.
Total installed memory can be found from the banner command.
CPU and bus speeds can be found from the .speed command.

There are a couple of things that you can do. A lot depends on your server model. Some of the older models don't have an extensive OBP.
banner(as was suggested)

Set your diag-switch to true and boot the box.
setenv diag-switch? true
setenv diag-level max
