Unsupported Model 61 (Intel PCM)


Hi experts,

I am trying to obtain a power consumption metric from my i7-5700EQ@2.6GHz using "Intel Performance Counter Monitor-PCM-v2.10" but the application returns the following error:

Cleaning up

I thought that Broadwell family was supported from version 2.9. 

NOTE: NMI_WATCHDOG is disabled after executing:

echo 0 | sudo tee /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog


Thanks in advance.

Best Regards.
