AMD Power Monitor 1.2.3

Keep an eye on the processor usage and obtain real-time data regarding a core's frequency and voltage for all cores of an AMD processor
Your processor is in continuous stress, especially when you are launching applications that require important system resources in order to run. In order to prevent it from overloading, it is important that you monitor its functioning parameters and adjust the power options so as not to affect it.

AMD Power Monitor is an application that can help you in this matter, providing a simple method to keep an eye on a computer's processor so as to make sure that it is running at top performance at all times. As its name suggests, it is exclusively designed for AMD processors and will not work with any other hardware type.

Accessibility via the system tray

AMD Power Monitor runs in the background, doing its job silently, without tampering with your work. You can easily access its settings by right-clicking on the tray icon, which reveals a menu comprising options related to the power scheme. The application can be configured to launch at Windows startup, either in minimized or compact mode.

Its main window displays real-time data concerning the CPU usage for each core, alongside details about the current frequency and voltage. This way, you can view when the CPU is overloaded and identify the factors that cause this situation.

Adjust the power scheme

As mentioned above, AMD Power Monitor enables you to change the power scheme as you consider fit. As you might imagine, the 'High Performance' mode puts a significant amount of stress on the processor, while the 'Power saver' is focused on preserving battery and saving power.

Monitoring tool for AMD processors

AMD Power Monitor enables you to monitor the usage, voltage and frequency of AMD processor, retrieving data for each of their cores. Thanks to the simple approach, it is very easy to work with. The system tray icon makes it extremely accessible and easy to configure.
