ThrottleWatch is a so-called thermal management throttling program and is able to monitor and graph the load, voltage, clock frequency and throttling of an AMD Athlon 64, Intel Pentium 4, Xeon, Pentium M and Celeron processor. to give. A processor with TMT (Intel SpeedStep or AMD Cool’n’Quiet) can ‘cool’ the processor in two ways, namely by putting idle processing cycles in the pipeline (TM1) or by switching the clock frequency of the processor down (TM2 ). As a result, a lower power is absorbed by the CPU and fans can possibly run at a lower speed, which, for example, results in lower energy consumption with a laptop and so you can work longer on that laptop.
Yesterday, the developers of Panopsys released a new version of ThrotlleWatch. It concerns version 2.01 which is available as a zip archive from this location can be downloaded. Below is the changelog for the 2.01 release:
A minor bug was fixed. Pentium 4 processors that support Enhanced Intel SpeedStep were not showing fluctuations in CPU frequency due to Power Management throttling. If you have one of the latest Pentium 4 “J” CPUs, please download the latest version.[break]
