I have an Athlon 64 X2 processor and i am curious on how i can write a simple Visual Basic program that reads the frequency of each core (similar to "amd clock" program).


I have some knowledge about programming but i can not figure out what

should i download in terms of libraries/drivers/SDK that are specific to the

Athlon 64 X2.


So, except Visual Studio what else (CPU SDK, libraries etc) must i  download?
