According to the man page the coretemp driver only provides support for 
the on-die digital thermal sensor present in Intel Core and newer CPUs, 
suggesting that it wouldn't work for AMD CPUs.

But I get sensible looking results for my Athlon 64 X2 4850e with the 
following command:

        sysctl hw.acpi.thermal.tz0.temperature

That looks like a totally different Windows only application.
