DTS vs. Enhanced temperatures reading on a 12th gen Intel®Core™ i7-12650H Laptop Processor [Alder Lake]

Hi, I have a case where my Intel®Core™ i7-12650H had different temperature reading between DTS and Enhanced section. The difference between DTS reading and Enchanced reading is almost 20°C. (my CPU Package temperature under Enhanced section is 72°C at idle while the DTS section tells me that it read 55°C of CPU Package Temperature instead of 72°C.

Please help me!

Also is it normal for my laptop to be on those temperature at idle? (My room's ambient temperature is about 28°C to 29°C)

It's hard to compare values when they are highly fluctuating, the difference could be due to different time points sampled and/or averaged.
Based on minimum values I cannot see a 20 C difference but about 8 C.

For laptops it's quite common to reach such temperatures due to their limited heat dissipation capabilities. Even in idle there might be several background tasks running that can instantly ramp up CPU load.

Yes you are right, it's a 8°C difference of reading. It seems that Intel also never clarify about this reading/sampling problem though.

I also seen that my laptop is idling at 39°C at 25°C room temperature. I think it's fine and totally okay for a laptop like you said.
