I think the graph is now as optimized as it'll ever be.
Public beta testing will soon begin.

I know an update is long overdue but real life kind of got in the way. With college, work and other related projects taking up the majority of my time I simply didn't have much or any time to work on Core Temp.
Anyway, the new version is now up on the main Core Temp page here:http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/
You'll notice that there are not many changes, mostly bug fixes and other small improvements.
Core Temp is now built on Visual C++ 2010, which means that the oldest supported operating system is Windows XP SP2, which I think should not be a problem acceptable.
Of course all new and some of the upcoming processors are now supported. For the Intel camp, in theory newer processors should not need Core Temp to be updated to be able to report accurate temperatures anymore (even if it doesn't recognize the processor itself).
One other major difference, and this goes to the Intel guys, is a totally new algorithm for clock speed detection.
The first and biggest change is that the new algorithm is now monitoring on a per-thread scale. This means the main window will display the highest processor speed out of all the running threads, and in System Information window you will be able to see the frequency of every single thread. (I'm saying "thread" because in the HT enabled Core i7 processors the frequency reported by each thread of a single core could differ).
It measures the frequency every 50ms and displays an average frequency over the span of 1 second. This should allow for more stable and accurate clock speed.
Hi Coolest, thanks for the new release. I have a question for you. Would you be interested to add the functionality of RMClock into the Core Temp for both AMD and Intel CPUs? RMClock is not maintained anymore and it does not support AMD processors. It would be very useful if there was a software to do fine tuning of C&Q and Speedstep for undervolting. And, many people are disabling these very nice power saving features in their overclocked processors since they can not do fine tuning. I think you are one of the few people who can develop this code.
