No doubt Windows 10 Task Manager is a useful tool that provides key information about resource consumption and helps you in managing programs. In addition, it shows detailed statistics about each process running on your system.
Now the Redmond giant has decided to improve the effectiveness of this feature by introducing some new features in Windows 10 2004. Some of the key changes are listed below:
A Dedicated Option To Show GPU’s Temperature
Overheating has always been a problem for Windows 10 users. Thus, they are always looking for new ways to prevent their system from overheating. If you are one of those we have a piece of good news for you. Microsoft has finally decided to deal with this issue.
The next major feature update is bringing a new option that will allow you to keep an eye on your GPU’s temperature. More specifically, the Task Manager will now show the current temperature of your GPU. This feature will work for those systems that have a dedicated GPU card.
Moreover, you should be running the latest version of graphics Drivers. However, this feature will also support integrated graphics in future releases. Several Windows 10 users have already spotted the new option in Windows 10 20H1 builds. The Task Manager shows the current temperature of your GPU in Celsius.
Furthermore, the feature requires your graphics driver to support WDDM version 2.4+. For those who are unsure about the version, open the DirectX Diagnostic Tool and it’s listed under the Display tab (besides driver model).
Task Manager To Get A New Disk Type Option
Secondly, Microsoft is going to include a new disk type option in the Task Manager Performance tab in Windows 10 v2004. This option will make it easy for the users to identify and differentiate between various disk types including SSD, HDD, etc.
With the release of Windows 10 20H1, the new option will be available in the task manager under the disk section of the performance tab.
Architecture Info To Be Listed In The Details Tab
A report suggests that the built-in Task Manager is about to get a new Architecture column. This column is meant to give insights about the architecture of your system’s processor (i.e Arm32, x64 or x32).
As a quick reminder, the Details tab already shows the architecture information. However, this section only tells its users if its a 32-bit or 64-bit system.
Microsoft is all set to release Windows 10 version 2004 in Spring 2020. The upcoming feature update is about to bring some major enhancements and improvements.
