Changing VID?!?!

Now that you mention it, I think Intel's Speedstep technology works by using a "dynamic Vid" to vary the voltage along with the CPU speed (try googling for "P states" and "dynamic Vid"). I notice that your 3 shots all show different multipliers (and thus must be different P states).

That's WILD, I knew all chips had multiple VID's but I've never seen one change before. I never enable speedstep either, gotta try that (and changing multi) to see if it changes.

Well its not my computer. Its a friend and we were discussing VID for my new cpu, so he checked his just for the hell of it and it kept changing. I was like wtf, so i asked for screenshots. Those are only 3...it was changing constantly basically. My favorite is the 0.975...that would be a hell of a OCer

I mean, mine has Speedstep on but stays at 1.225v constant.
