All CPU Meter Desktop Gadget

November 28, 2009

If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, you’ll be in luck. Sorry XP users, you’ll have to upgrade to take advantage of today’s widget…or make that gadget. You see we’re going to look at a Desktop Gadget that runs as part of the Windows Sidebar.

All CPU Meter is especially useful if you have a number of cores in your machine. The newer quad core processors are also hyperthreaded so that each of them works as if it were two. At right is the CPU Usage as I was typing this blog. You’ll see that I still have a lot of power to spare. When I am doing more intensive tasks, there is a lot more usage. Quite a handy little gadget so you can keep track of when your computer is hard at work and when it is taking it easy.
