View Full Version : Win7 gadgets-CPU usage & net meter

I have these two windows 7 gadgets - The network meter and the cpu usage meter.
Both these meters I have manually set to refresh every 0.1 seconds, instead of every 1 second.
My question is, does the higher refresh rate make the CPU work harder?

Yes, it does. But it won't be by much. I don't really see why you need to do it more then 1 second though.
