Ryzen Master SDK integration


Recommended Posts

There is a clear discrepancy from how temps are reported by Ryzen Master and 3rd party monitoring programs (except hwinfo64). AMD's guidance is that "instant" measurements do not reflect the actual silicon thermal state. In Ryzen master they are actually using some sort of averaging method to better represent the CPU thermal state. 

What I am suggesting is to provide an alternate "CPU avg temp" measurement for these processors where the temp is calculated similarly to RM/hwinfo. Or better, integrate Ryzen Monitoring SDK (AMD Ryzen™ Master Monitoring SDK - AMD) that already provides the AMD canonical way of measuring CPU temp. I am currently working on a MSI Afterburner Plugin that uses AMD's SDK to measure and provide CPU temp, and while the implementation is straightforward, the actual challenge is that AMD's SDK is 64 bit while MSI Afterburner is 32 bit (and of course aida 64 too).

Is this something AIDA64 devs are interested  into? Alternatively, is there a way for a developer like me to help on such an implementation?

While I see your point and understand where you're coming from, we're still not interested in either averaging anything, or relying on SDK's when it's not absolutely necessary.
