HWMonitor brings support for upcoming Intel and AMD CPUs
The latest December update provides support for a long list of soon-to-be-released mobile hardware.
The 1.48 update now supports GeForce RTX 4080 (AD103) and Radeon RX 7900 Series. Both should now be correctly recognized by the system monitoring software HWMonitor. This tool was developed by the same team that maintains CPU-Z information software for desktop and mobile processors.
According to the changelog, this update expands software support for AMD Athlon and Ryzen series support codenamed “Mendocino”. These are the newest low-power mobile CPUs based on Zen2 architecture. One should expect more of these processors to appear soon on market with affordable laptops.
Interestingly, the developers of the HWMonitor also mention the updated Zen3+ Ryzen 7x35H series as supported. These are likely coming to market early next year. This includes 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 7535H and 8-core Ryzen 7 7735HS processors, both featuring Zen3+ architecture just like AMD Rembrandt.
Furthermore, some next-gen Intel 13th Gen Core-H and HX laptops are already supported as well. The previous version of the software already supported SKUs such as Core i9 13900HK or Core i7 13700H, but this patch expands the list by supporting many mid-range SKUs from Core i7 and high-end Core i7 range.
