Task Manager is one of the applications that consumers use every day, providing us with basic information about the system, including CPU, GPU, disk, and network usage. The task manager built into Windows 10 is also evolving, and the next major update to Windows 10 will bring three new features to Task Manager.
According to one report, Microsoft plans to add a new Architecture column to Task Manager. The schema column shows the schema of the process, such as x86, x64, or Arm32. Microsoft is likely to add the new feature to its Windows 10 update in the second half of next year.
Microsoft is also preparing to add disk type features to the ‘Performance’ tab of The Task Manager of Windows 10 2004 (Spring 2020 Update). This allows users to quickly identify disk types, such as HDDs, SSDs, and other disk types.
Microsoft is also preparing to add GPU temperature monitoring to Task Manager. If your Windows 10 system uses a discrete graphics card and the graphics driver is updated, Task Manager can display the current temperature of the GPU. This feature currently only displays GPU temperatures for discrete graphics cards, but may support integrated graphics GPU temperature displays in the future.
The updated graphics driver should support the WDDM 2.4 plus version. You can check the version of WDDM under the Display tab of the DirectX diagnostic tool. The WDDM version is listed next to the driver model. Task Manager currently displays temperature values at degrees Celsius, and this feature is also included in Windows 10 2004 (Spring 2020 Update).
Microsoft is expected to launch Windows 10 2004 (spring 2020 update) in April or May, with other major feature updates including Cloud Recovery, New Cortana Experience, and improved Optional Update Experience.
