Upcoming Windows 10 Task Manager Update to Show Power Usage, Power Usage Trend per Process

One nifty new feature currently being deployed to Windows 10 Fast Ring users is the ability to see exactly how much power a given process is consuming in your system's hardware (CPU, GPU & Disk). The new feature, which appears as two additional Task Manager tabs, showcases the instantaneous power usage of a given process, but also features a trend calculator that covers a two-minute interval. This should be pretty handy, if the measurement process is close enough to the real power consumption. This could even be used as another flag for cryptomining malware or scripts in a given webpage. You can check the source for the additional updates that have been brought to build 17704 of the Windows Insider Program.

"Very Low" That's not very handy or informative.

I'd like numbers too but I'm glad they're adding more info. I just like seeing data.

why it would be as accurate as loading or Windows update screen... 100% complete, yet took 2 seconds to get to that point and have watched the screen for that passed 20 minutes with no change, while to most people 100% means done, or I missed something in math class?

The usefulness of this "feature" is a limited thing. Why make a big deal about it?
