CPU Clock with Turbo Boost

Recommended Posts

As I've explained above, clearly AIDA64 + CPU-Z + HWMonitor measure CPU clock using a different method than what Task Manager and MSI Command Center use. I still have no other choice but to stick to my stance about AIDA64 (+ CPU-Z + HWMonitor) measuring CPU clock using the right (proper) method. I don't know what exactly the other 2 software do, and frankly I don't care, since I'm 100% sure they do not use a superior CPU clock measurement method than our software.

 

I need the support for the overclocking

Why do you need your CPU to run at e.g. 3500 MHz when you overclock it? :) I thought you want it to be quick. It is quick even when it is running at a fixed clock all the time -- as long as that single clock speed level is high enough, of course.

So, my CPU does only a small numbers of steps, even if other Software Shows more steps?

Yes, it does. It doesn't utilize the middle steps at all. Of course if a certain software doesn't measure the CPU clock the right way, it could show something that your CPU doesn't do at all. If during the CPU clock measurement the CPU switches its multiplier up or down, and the measuring software is not aware of that, the measured CPU clock will not reflect the actual state of the CPU, but something in between the old state (before the software started to measure the clock speed) and the new state (after the software is done with the measurement). The measured MHz value will be in between the old clock and the new clock, so it will reflect a multiplier that the CPU may not switch to, at all, ever. Not to mention the issue that I've mentioned before, ie. when the CPU clock measurement code itself causes the CPU to switch its multiplier up or down (most likely up).

Avowed!

I have no idea why you cannot see any middle steps between the min and max ratios.

Now I can give you the idea.

Look at the Video attached as link.
It is a question of the Windows energy saving parameters.
In the first part you can see that the Intel Tool, TaskManager and the MSI Tool can show me some differences to the frequency while Aida shows only 1200 or 4500 GHz.
The other Tools show me little steps, but the steps are present. (When I reduce to a "one tool measuring" they rather bigger)
Maybe that all other do an average calculation or whatever. Aida does not.
In the middle time of the video I changed the energy saving plan from “maximum output†to “Balancedâ€.

After this, the CPU steps are much more various and now Aida can see the steps.
So your Test system seems to be in balanced mode too.
 

AIDA64 lets CPUs have a bit of "break" before it measures the CPU core clock. Hence when the CPU is idle, it should measure the lowest clock rate, the sleeping state.


Yes, it does. It doesn't utilize the middle steps at all.


I can’t tell you why Aida cannot recognize the smaller steps. I believe that it looks too much on the “Sleep State†then on the frequency itself, but therefore you are the specialist.
​Other Tools can see the smaller steps!

The “break†maybe the wrong way or maybe obsolete for overclocking measuring of modern processors.
The other tools present the data much faster and therefore more details? I don’t know.

If someone other ask the same you can now answer him.
 
If the system is in “maximum output “state by the energy saving plan, Aida can only recognize “Sleep State†or “Fullâ€, even when other tools show you other.
If you change to an “balanced†energy saving plan Aida shows the same information as other tools.

I have exactly the same problem with my 7800x cpu and aida 5.97.4600

It reads only min and max frequency of my processor, in my case 1200 mhz and 4000 mhz, no frequencies between.

cpu clock monitor gives same speeds according to cores (1200 or 4000)

Even when my cpu usage is 2%, core frequency  gives also 4000 mhz in aida (vs 1.4 ghz in windows task manager)

Aida64 gives the wrong frequencies

Since this post is almost 2 years old, i guess there wont be any fix for  ?

Task Manager shows an average CPU clock speed measured through a period of time, while AIDA64 shows the CPU clock speed as it is provided by the CPU, at any given time point.
