CPU meter for quad-core

  Christopher Lewis 11:37 11 Dec 07

I have just installed a quad-core CPU (Q6600). Is there a utility which will show how busy each core is - perhaps as a graphic? I know there is one for Vista, but I'm running Windows XP home.

Does the new processor show up in task mgr?

I use this Sidebar gadget on XP click here

There is a cpu monitor available as a plugin to add to the Sidebar click here

It says it supports multiple cores (I only have a dual core so can't check if it does quad).....might be worth a look.

Many thanks. Sidebar gadget does the job, and more. I could spend some time customizing it(:-)
