Windows 10 Will Show GPU Temperature in the Task Manager

The Windows 10 Task Manager improves for the players. In Windows Insider version 18963, the task manager now shows the temperature of your GPU. This will be part of the Windows 10 Update 20H1, which will become stable around May 2020.

This last feature relies on the features of the graphics processor that Microsoft has already added to the task manager in the latest Windows 10 updates. Windows 10 already shows GPU usage information and statistics in the task manager– the name of your GPU to the available memory and its use.

Now, "GPU Temperature" also appears when you select your GPU in the Performance tab of the Task Manager. You can see the temperature of your GPU without any third-party utilities.

There are some limitations: This only works with dedicated GPUs (not with built-in or "built-in" GPUs). You must have an updated graphics driver to the WDDM 2.4 or higher driver template. And it only displays temperatures in degrees Celsius for the moment – not Fahrenheit.

We hope that Microsoft will add more temperature statistics to the task manager in the future. The CPU temperature displayed directly in the Task Manager would be an amazing feature.

Other cool features in this release include Notepad updated via the store, the ability to rename virtual desktops in the task view, an enhanced page on optional features in settings, a mouse speed slider in settings, and updating your account photo in multiple Microsoft services when you change it in the settings.
