VisualBoyAdvance - for Intel mac?

Well, i've been using VBA for a while now, works great. But one problem is that it uses up alot of CPU power, and the fans go berserk. I checked it, and turns out its a PowerPC app, im guessing thats why its so CPU heavy.
So i tried Boycott advance, but i cant load my old savestates from VBA.
I really like VBA, so i wanted to know, do anyone know of a Intel based VBA?

Btw, running MacBook 2.4 ghz.

Cheers!

Hey, I was just wondering if the CPU on this version of VBA is actually much less? I had the same problem with a PPC version of VBA using up lots (almost 50%) CPU, but when I found a universal binary, the Intel version used up just as much CPU. How's this one perform?

For DS games, check out DeSmuME, it has support for just about everything.

I know it's kind-of late reply but:

It's called Mac Boy Advance (basically VisualBoy Advance for Intel, version 1.7.6)

Try here: http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Games/M...-Advance.shtml

or just google it.
