id 0x60fb2 is the BH-G2 core.

'dmesg | grep amdtemp' should print this:

amdtemp0: AMD CPU Temperature Sensors (K8: core rev BH-G2)

I have 'id 0x60f82' which is the BH-G2 core (mobile version).

'dmesg | grep amdtemp' prints this for me:

amdtemp0: AMD CPU Temperature Sensors (K8: core rev BH-G2)

envstat shows me this:

    CPU0 Sensor0:     55.500                                degC
    CPU0 Sensor1:     58.500                                degC
    CPU1 Sensor0:     55.500                                degC
    CPU1 Sensor1:     54.000                                degC

What puzzles me is how amdtemp shows strange temperature values,
although we have the same core.
