The CPU Digital Thermal Sensor measures temperature of each CPU core directly - it has an on-chip embedded diode per core.
Other CPU temperatures reported usually via discrete sensor chips (like ITE or Winbond, etc.) measure CPU temperature from a diode that's not directly attached to CPU, but underneath or close to it.
By the way, I use MSI Afterburner with HWINFO64 to display my CPU/GPU temps.
I was wondering if it was possible to display the Average of core1+core2+core3+core4 or Highest core temp instead of displaying a random core, like I'm doing right now.
And if not, possible for this to get added in the future?
GPU is reported from Afterburner and CPU is reported from current CPU core 0, but what I would like is current highest CPU core to be displayed. RealTemp 3.70 has that feature but it doesn't have the ability to display things in game like AB/HWINFO64.
