Have any Intel GMA users tried this?

    I wouldn't try something like this, it seems a little fishy to me, and you could risk damaging your MacBook.

    I was wondering the same thing, will it cause any damage or loss of battery life? It says it doesn't change voltage but who knows.

    I'd imagine battery life will suffer a little bit, as you're running a chip at a considerably higher speed than the factory setting.

    That shouldn't actually matter unless the voltage is being changed as well. If the voltage is untouched then running at a higher clock won't necessarily boost power usage (although it may decrease stability if the voltage is too low...)

    I don;t hink it will effect battery much. Its still way less than most discrete graphics use.

    I don't have a GMA anymore but i remember wanting more juice whilst i had one. It seems to be a reasonable boost and doesn't seem like it'll have a negative effect from what i gather
