[WCCF] AMD Bulldozer Slides, Packaging and Live Demonstration at E3 2011 - Page 13

post #121 of 162
@MacA,

I have no experience on the matter but I do believe the point people are making about the sensor is that the sensor readings are relative and not a definitive read of "actual" temperatures. It isn't "broken" because it is reading something but it isn't "working" because it doesn't give an actual temperature. It gives a temperature relative to something else. Then again, I could be so wrong that I just made a fool of myself (: In either case, consider the flame fanned.

That's actually what i call broken ^^.
When I say broken, I mean "not doing what it is supposed" to and not damaged.
I'm not a specialist either, but there is no need to be when we're simply dealing with a "working or not working" case.

Don't be so sure. Some Athlon 64s had temp sensor issues, before Thuban.

I love that box design
The frequencies seem low, but being idle/CnQ I think that seems explainable

I suggest everyone complaining and arguing about the sensor not reading correctly and what not should read through this thread.

http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/93...out-1090t.html

Here is a quote from the first post in the Thread.

"The core temperatures have an equational offset to determine temperature which equalizes at about 45 Celsius thus giving you more accurate readings at peak temperatures. The hindrance in this is the sub ambient idle temperature readings you speak of. "

So how I read that is that the sensor sacrifices accuracy at idle where temps don't matter as much for more accuracy at load temperatures.

As to why all the core temps read the exact same read this FAQ on the CoreTemp forums. Specifically question 4.

http://www.alcpu.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=892

"AMD processors based on the Phenom and Phenom II (Athlon II, Sempron II, Turion II, etc.) only have a single thermal sensor.
Thus Core Temp will only display a single CPU temperature reading. There is no way of getting a per-core reading on these processors."

+1. Very useful information.

Why do they have DDR3 ram but only run in a 2 channel set up? This has bugged me form the get go, it's like having extra performance then not using it .

Sounds like they hired "Duke Nukem" (his voice actor).
