    Phoronix: Google Engineers Have Been Working On An AMD SB-TSI Temperature Driver

    Google open-source engineers have been working on a temperature driver for AMD's SoC SB-TSI emulated temperature sensor for the Linux kernel...

        I am dreaming of this with dual socket .... Got to wait a tad more for that.

          Of that ASRock board pictured? They do have a 2P option available.

              Hmmm actually not listing on their website at the moment. Not sure if they discontinued it or just whatever issue at the moment, but I know there is/was a 2P version of that same board and still at a decent price.

                As a AMD fanboy, I find it shameful that it took outsiders to write code for this important feature, especially on the high lucrative enterprise sector.

                Yeah AMD, people gots to know if the temp is 55C or 66C.

                  @[email protected] I don't know if it surprises you, but Intel is doing much of the software grunt work (Kernel, toolchain support etc.) in the X86 ecosystem which AMD and other X86 vendors profit from to a large degree. That is nothing new though. Also AMD contracts some of the architecture specific work out to others (e.g. compiler tuning is done by SUSE for them for GCC). And I see nothing wrong with that approach bringing third parties ito the table, after all AMD is a much smaller company. With compelling products others do have an incentive to invest into AMD's product stack which furthers their attractiveness even more. AMD had to close their open source technology center which was responsible for the early bring up of new platforms. With more cash at hand I expect them to invest more into their ecosystem as there are still some blind spots which need their attention (e.g. Glibc called out for help from them).

                    Why? As long as default cooling curve in BIOS/UEFI is fine, then I really don't need to know my CPU's temperature,... In the end, my laptop/desktop is just a tool, and I want it to work out-of-the-box, and therefore invest my time in better things, than tinkering with cooling curve,...
