Nvidia's ESA: "Enthusiast System Architecture"

Post by Filias Cupio » Tue Nov 06, 2007 6:52 pm

"The Enthusiast System Architecture (ESA) is the industry’s first open-standard PC monitoring and control protocol for real-time communication and control of system thermal, electrical, acoustic and operating characteristics."

With this, it looks like SpeedFan-like software will be able to monitor/control temperatures and fans in your PSU, GPU and water cooling system. The motherboard might actually be able to tell the software where its temperature sensors are. And it will be able to tell you that your 800W PSU is running at less than 30% capacity even when you're gaming.

It looks to still be vapourware.
