This is my GPU:

Everything looks... fine, apart from the TMU count being reported as 48. I'm not sure if this is incorrect.


This is where it starts to look weird, and it certainly shocked me that the HD 8650G could be idling at such a temperature.

However, HWInfo64 v6.40-4330 reports a totally different temperature for the HD 8650G. Now, I'm confused. Very confused.

I'm confident that the HD 8650G is not cooking itself to death, judging by the heat vents' temperature. Still, I'd like to know if GPU-Z is simply reporting the wrong core temperature.
