I have been using Performance Monitor to monitor CPU usage in the taskbar notification area, with one icon per logical CPU. Now I upgraded from a 4 core / 8 thread to a 10 core / 20 thread processor, and Performance Monitor is taking up too much space (~ 470 pixels with my settings) for my taste.
Is there an alternative which also shows each logical CPU's usage, but squeezes more than one into each icon (4 per icon would be nice, but 2 would be okay too)?
Ideally, like Performance Monitor, it should show a history graph, but that's not a requirement.
Fallback: Instead of each logical CPU, it could live with one icon for the average, and one for the maximum of all. Windows Task Manager already does the former, so I'd only need a tool for the maximum.
