Many techniques have previously been proposed for using low-level CPU Performance Monitoring Counters in power estimation models. In this paper, we present some common myths of these techniques, and their potential impact. Such myths include: (1) sampling rate can be ignored; (2) thermal effects are neutral; and (3) memory events correlate well with power.

The most likely cause for the warmup effects is static power leakage from the processor, which is due to the high temperatures. 6GHz. It might seem that the only way to reliably monitor thermal effects is through embedded temperature sensors. However, since their placement inside the socket is some distance away from the top of CPU, embedded sensors do not provide reliable temperature data [3]. Also such sensors were not designed for high precision temperature reading, as their purpose is to provide an early warning system to prevent hardware damage.
