HARDWARE --
With a new patch queued up in the hardware monitoring subsystem's hwmon-next branch, several more ASUS motherboards for Intel and AMD processors will enjoy working sensor monitoring support.

Several ASUS motherboards featuring Nuvoton NCT6775/NCT6798D ASICs will now have working sensor support once this patch lands for the Linux 6.2 cycle. Up to now there has been a bug with a resource clash preventing the nct6775 driver from making use of the functionality.

The ASUS motherboards known to be affected that are now going to be white-listed for support include:

- ProArt B550-CREATOR
- ProArt Z490-CREATOR 10G
- ROG CROSSHAIR VIII EXTREME
- ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HERO (WI-FI)
- TUF GAMING B550M-E
- TUF GAMING B550M-E (WI-FI)
- TUF GAMING B550M-PLUS WIFI II


This patch currently queued in hwmon-next ahead of Linux 6.2 adds those models to the WMI monitoring list.


These boards are in addition to various other HWMON driver improvements in recent kernel releases that have been expanding the ASUS motherboard list for having working thermal/power/fan-speed monitoring support under Linux. Slowly but surely the Linux sensor monitoring support for modern AMD/Intel motherboards has been improving.
