Help finding out AMD A10 CPU temperature

16 posts in this topic

Posted

I am trying to find out my CPU temperature, I have a quad core AMD A10 5700, I installed a free product called HWMonitor for this and it shows lots of data but not the four cores temperatures, instead it shows me a single core called "package".

 

Anybody can tell me if this is because the CPU has a graphics card integrated or how to find out each core temperature?

 

Thank you

 

PS: Screenshot attached, see where it says "Temperatures">Packages

Not all motherboards have temperature sensors, so you might not be able to tell.

 

I'm guessing 'package' is the core temps -- the highest figures.

 

127 F, being the average.

Temp sensor of the motherboard has nothing to do with the temp sensor of the CPU.. And yes OP.. See AMD A10-5700, then see "temperatures" under that? That is your Current, Min and Max CPU temps.

OP Asked.

You said:

Then I said, this, because you clearly implied that the motherboard temp sensor had something to do with the CPU temp sensor:

So don't try to play it off as though you knew what you were talking about with:
 

DUH :laugh:


Not trying to be a jerk here, I just don't like it when people give clearly misleading information.

^ I was teasing a bit.

 

What I meant was not all have a sensor just for the CPU.

 

And I know from experience that CPU's have the highest temp.

 

Peace. ;)

Based on what was said here: http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/howitworks.html; I checked the AMD programmer manuals and I think there is only one package sensor for APUs (either that or the documentation is really horrible... it actually is pretty bad tbh).

AMD CPU's/APU's have an history of not reporting temps correctly to programs, HWmonitor is one of those. You could try Speedfan but doubt that'll do any better.

package temp is exactly that, the temp of the cpu package.

I forgot to answer the other part of the question -- A10-5700 is an APU and that GPU listed is integrated on die.

Thank you everyone for the advice.

 

Do I deduct it correctly that because AMD A10 is an APU and not a stand alone CPU I will never see temperature for each separate core?

 

I was confused because I used to have an Intel quad core before and temperatures using the same program were dispalying each separate core, I had not taken into account that the A10 is a APU with graphics.

that is odd. I'm running a AMD combo A8 3520M with a 6620HD APU... they down graded your APU for basically a superior CPU to mine. :huh:

Not mine :-), but the OPs. I imagine it has something to do with catering to different segments of the market.

Even the older series AMDs (non-APUs) didn't have per-core temperature sensors from what I've been reading (disclaimer: I haven't owned an AMD processor in ages). If they had decided to they could have provided sensors for each core and the on-die GPU. It may well have to do with the on-die transistor area. It might not have distinct regions used for core or for the gpu; in which case it doesn't really make sense to have more than 1 sensor for the entire package.
