What is the difference between the temperature read from /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp and the one returned by /usr/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp ?

I'm asking as they're often not the same:

Code: Select all

temp=59.1'C 59072
temp=59.1'C 59610
temp=58.5'C 59072
temp=59.1'C 59610
temp=59.1'C 59072
temp=58.5'C 59072

/usr/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp is the GPU Temp and the other is the CPU temp.
