    CPU usage/load not reported correclty in various monitoring softwares

    Hi

    Updated to Windows 11 22H2 yesterday and CPU usage/load not reported correclty in various monitoring softwares.
    Basically HWMonitor, NZXT CAM, Core Temp, Armoury Crate report CPU usage 1-5%. Played Battlefield 2042 and CPU usage was 1-5%, performance was not impacted. Task manager is like how it is, reporting various usages. If i launch stress tests then monitoring software reprots 100%.

    Asus ROG Strix Z590-F Gaming Wifi BIOS 1402 (latest) + i7 11700K

    Wanted to check if my drivers are updated but the ASUS support page is not updated I think. What should i check? Chipset? Intel ME?

    I found this, do I need to install it:
    https://www.intel.com/content/www/us...indows-11.html

    Armoury crate reports Intel ME 2131.1.4.0 as installed.

    I have the same "problem" since i made a clean install of windows 11 22H2 with Windows Media Creation Tool.

    HWMonitor mostly only shows a cpu utilization of 1-5 % while playing games. The new taskmanager shows the correct value.

    Harware: Asus ROG Strix Z590-E, i7 11700k, Asus TUF Gaming 3080TI OC

    UEFI and GPU drivers are up to date.

    Here is the reason:

    MSI Afterburner 4.6.5 Beta 2

    CPU usage sensors have been switched to alternate data source to bypass wrong CPU usage reporting on 22H2 due to broken idle times returned by NtQuerySystemInformation(SystemProcessorPerformanc eInformation)

    I wonder what "switched to alternate data source" means. Strange bug or design choice whatever it is.
