Ryzen SOC power and current - large number compared with other HW monitoring tools


HWiNFO 6.10 latest beta
Windows 10 amd64
Ryzen 5 2600x
MSI B450M Mortar

Basically SOC current and SOC power consumption doubles what I see in AIDA64 and SIV(System Infomation Viewer).

AIDA64 and SIV reported values are roughly the same.

Note that this might be related to MSI board design that needs special tweak. I've seed multiple related threads. Example:
See attached image.

Reporting for CPU (VDD) and SoC current/power strongly depends on mainboard model and its design. So for some boards (especially MSI) it requires adjusting for each model.
I strongly doubt that AIDA64 and SIV use correct adjustments, it's more likely something closer to reality, but not absolutely.
I'm currently working on this with MSI and hope to provide better numbers in future builds.
