Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2008-06-17 17:17:50 EDT
This is to be expected, the on die temperature diode's of AMD's are wildly
inaccurate (the process in which the silicium is processed from raw silicium to
a processor is not optimised to generate a good temperature sensor but to
generate a good processor).

I can send this report to the author of the k8temp driver if you want, but I
expect the answer to be the same (I'm subscribed to the lm_sensors mailing-list
and this is sort of a FAQ).

Eh, good enough for me.. I would rather have the good processor.
