Voltage/power data for each core and gpu of Odroid XU4

Unread post by aneeshmkoya » Thu Jan 10, 2019 2:17 am

My project is to compare the power ratings of each core and gpu of the processor. Is there any way to obtain voltage/power data for each core and gpu of Odroid XU4? Can I replace Odroid XU4 and have XU3 from the vendor?

No there is no way to measure per core and you can't obtain an XU3 unless you find a used one from a third party.

Why they removed power sensors from latest Odroid XU4? This is a very essential part, I do not know why they stopped supporting it.

It made the device overly expensive and few people needed this feature unfortunately.

Because of the material cost for the power measuring components and PCB space, we had to remove them.
XU3 was $180 and twice bigger than XU4.
Can you measure the CPU/GPU/DRAM/IO power consumption in your PC or laptop?
We still believe very few people want to measure the power consumption of each system blocks.
