Anyone notice this metric in HWiNFO64?

I just swapped my 5700 XT for a 6800 XT and "Power Reporting Deviation (Accuracy)" was not a metric that ever appeared when I had the 5700 XT, or maybe I never noticed it. Looks interesting.

Current 90% | Lowest 80 % | Highest 439.2% | Average 148.3%

any time the percentage drops below 90% it turns Red

Its not really related to GPU, its more the CPU/Motherboard

you can also mostly ignore it

As stated before, this metric is only valid during a relatively stable near-full-load condition. That is due to the typical measurement accuracy of the VRM controller telemetry, and also due to the highly advanced and fast power management on Ryzen CPUs, that not only result in extremely low idle, but also in extremely rapidly changing power consumption.

its normal for 2nd figure to be red, mine is everyday
current: 151.6
Lowest: 85.1
Max: 197.6
Avg: 154.5

I looked it up first time I saw the red :)

Thank you. Strange that its reported in the GPU column, but as long as I can ignore it I am good.

See it all the way on the right in my GPU column? It doesn't show up under my CPU column. Maybe it glitched its way over there.

It probably got dragged there with a random click. Happens all the time with my clumsy fingers!

In the configure Sensors button (the gear), go to layout tab and click on Restore Original Order. I have to do that from time to time in order to find things I've 'lost'.

did that and it moved over to under the CPU EDC limit thanks for the tip!
