My processors temperature in function of time when running a 2 threaded program

I wanted to check out whether the processors temperature of my computer would follow a capacitor charging voltage’s like curve (see for instance http://www.learningaboutelectronics.com/images/Capacitor-charging-graph.png) when running a program that runs on my 2 threads/processors.

So I’ve written a python script that register the cores temperature every second for 2 minutes and I started Stockfish chess engine (uci, go infinite) at about second 16 or so.

The result is that yes, somehow the temperature does follow a capacitor charging-like curve:
