I have an MSI S270 laptop (MS-1013) with an MT-30 and I've installed the powernow driver and Dashboard Demo and Power monitor to see which one I liked better and I noticed that while they both report the same clock speeds (800/1600) they report different voltages.

Power monitor says it runs at 0.9V at 800MHz and 1.2V at 1.6GHz
Dashboard Demo says it runs at 1.0V at 800MHz and 1.3V at 1.6GHz.

Just wondering which one is correct and why they display differently.

looks like pm is rounding the voltage down, dashboard is rounding up

which one is correct? - check software voltages under *full load* and compare it with the value reported in the bios. One should match
