I mean more samples for a given values. Often monitored values
oscillate between two or three values. On some systems you have to
leave and re-enter the monitoring screen in the BIOS to get new values,
but most of them update the values every second automatically.

Either you live in the 4th dimension, or your distribution has extra
code doing that kind of magic. The code at lm-sensors.org doesn't do
anything like this.

Our code doesn't do this, no. Your Linux distribution, maybe, but this
is the first time I hear of this.
