What does core GT mean?


Recommended Posts


I have a Intel Core i-7 2630QM processor and AIDA64 shows some sensors that I don't know what they are

core GT

Core IA

core package

How they are different from

Core #1/ Core #1

Core #1/ Core #2

Core #1/ Core #3

Core #1/ Core #4

any idea?

Interesting, you mean there is an integrated gpu inside the cpu and another outside the cpu?

The laptop has Radeon HD 6550M GPU and Intel Core-i7 2630QM

But there is no switch to select any of them and I think always the Radeon is working.

One more question

What is "CPU package"? I noticed there is another sensor named "CPU". What is the difference?

Your processor indeed has an integrated GPU, but it may be disabled due to an external GPU (Radeon).

CPU, CPU Package, CPU IA Cores, CPU GT Cores, CPU #1 / Core #n are all measured by different diodes, either internal ones built into the CPU, or via external diodes managed by the notebook motherboard. We usually recommend to watch only the CPU #1 / Core #n temperatures, since those are the ones managed by the Intel DTS technology that prevents your CPU from overheating.
