Interesting :-) So intel simply opted to change from reporting absolute
temperatures to reporting degrees left until the chip starts melting (with a
minus sign..). The below text is from the document you mentioned:
The temperature reported over PECI is always a negative value and represents a
delta below the onset of thermal control circuit (TCC) activation, as
indicated by PROCHOT#. Therefore, as the temperature approaches TCC
activation, the value approaches zero degrees Celsius.
IMHO this is no longer anything that should be reported as a temperatur, too
confusing that. Maybe it should be called a cpu-feeling-ok-index ;-)
Btw, I'm curious, how does OMSA handle this new behaviour?
