Heated discussions have been running up around here lately, and someone asked about something interesting in one of the threads. "If we can disable our GPU for better battery and heat management, why can't we do it with the CPU". Actually there is a way to disable turboboost in Mac. First of all, what is turboboost?; So basically, you have a computer that runs a base clock of 2.3 GHz. It runs like that all the time. Then when task that could go faster comes up then it can jump to a clock of 3.3 GHz in violent small millisecond. And then again. it spikes to fix every situation so fast. But it heats up the temperatures over time. It would never go under its base clock 2.3 besides a throttling emergency. Basically the temperatures would need to get past 105c degrees for the CPU clock to go all the way down, to say... 1,3 GHz. Why disable turboboost? It's a known fact that with disabling turboboost, you can reduce temperatures and increase battery life. If you have silly software like flash that is way to annoyingly coded anyway, why allow your Mac to get all heated up just because Youtube is a b**ch? Disable it, and leave it for when work needs to be done. Not all applications and websites are equally using the resources. This allows a Mac with a powerful processor to get all fired up for little reason. Turbboost is great for certain thing, but let's not act like we need it all the time. At least not in a world with Flash Video; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ci5t-54ksEM Link to App; https://github.com/rugarciap/Turbo-Boost-Switcher Disclaimer; I havent used it. I am just excited to see this, because I thought this could only be done under Windows by downloading the Intel Application and setting CPU power to 99%. I had no idea it was possible in OSX. Seeing it makes me excited. If anyone here have any gains in temperature drops or battery life, please do tell!
