Core VID vs vcore


New Member
I recently in motherboard bios put Dynamic Voltage (DVID) to -0.150v, this changed vcore in hwinfo64from 1.296v to 1.176v.

However the Core # 1-4 VID is still unchanged at 1.316v, it is a i5 2310 cpu.
VID is the voltage that the CPU requests from voltage regulator and which it "thinks" it is getting. Vcore on the other hand is the real monitored CPU voltage value that the CPU is getting. If the mainboard implements additional Vcore "offsetting" then the CPU doesn't know about this and so the difference between VID and Vcore can be explained.
