Is there any app to show CPU speed (mhz) in real time, for i5/i7 Macs?

    I guess coolbook could do it, but it still doesn't support ix Macs.
    I would like to see how much turbo frequency scales the cores to 2.9 Ghz.

    Thanks.

    I'm also interested in this. As far as I'm aware, there is no Mac application that will do this.

    I've been looking for one too. AnandTech mentions using MSRTools in their review of the 2011 MBPs but none of the download links I've found seem to be active.

    I do not know of any apps to see it in OS X. Is a pity, because a dashboard widget showing the clocks of the cores individually would be amazing.

    In Windows you can use the Intel Turbo Boost Monitor.

    To all of you. I use a Dashboard widget called iStatPro. Download it here. It's great. It tells you all sorts of things: hard drive usage, temps, cpu usage, memory usage, battery stats, networks... The list goes on and on. Good luck! :D

    iStatPro is great but it gives you the CPU usage in terms of a percentage. While you could figure out what that clock speed is, it becomes a hassle. The OP wants an app that shows the clock speed that is running at that specific point.

    I also use iStatPro, It's a great utility. I first got it for temp monitoring because my MBP was getting very hot, once I saw all the features it offered I fell in love.
