This little program supports processors from all tree CPU manufacturers, including Intel, AMD, and even VIA. This utility makes it easy to monitor the temperature of any modern x86-based processor.

Core Temp Info

The temperature readings are pretty accurate because the data is collected straight from a Digital Thermal Sensor, located in each individual processing core – near the hottest part of it.

DTS (Digital Thermal Sensor) is developed by Intel for accurate temperature readings of each of the cores inside CPU. This feature is implemented in Core 2 Duo and later processors with multiple cores.

The sensor is digital, meaning it does not rely on an external circuit located on the motherboard to report temperature, instead it is stored in a special register in the CPU so the software (including OS) can access and read it if necessary.

Core Temp supports all major processors from Intel, AMD, and VIA manufacturers.
