ThrottleWatch is a utility for detecting and reporting the CPU throttling activity in Pentium 4, Xeon, and Pentium M processors. The amount of heat a CPU produces varies according to the processing load. In situations of high sustained load (such as performance benchmarks, etc...), a CPU may produce more heat than the cooling mechanism is capable of removing, and reach a high enough internal temperature to trigger throttling. ThrottleWatch monitors and graphically displays both the CPU load and any throttling that occurs. ThrottleWatch can also create a journal file for use with external data analysis programs such as Microsoft Excel.

TMonitor is aimed to display the active clock of each individual core of Intel Core 2 and Core i3/i5/i7 processors. A very high refresh rate (20 times per second) allows to visualize the smallest clock variation in real time. TMonitor is able to detect mechanism such as Intel Turbo boost, and therefore allows to clearly visualize its effect as the processor is working.
