    This just hit my Software Update today. I didn't install it, as I don't install any updates unless they patch critical security flaws or add/fix functionality I want. But I'm curious about this.


    My MacBook Pro has an advertised battery life of about 7 hours and I do get about that out of the battery, but I'll take more if I can get it.



    So, anyone installed this yet?

    Check your Software Update or go here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5384
    Not much is written about it, just that it changes the CPU power consumption.

    Please post any details you have about it in this thread! I'm sure a lot more people than just myself want to hear about any benefits or bugs that may be present with this update. I'm weary about updating low-level components immediately before the bugs (if any) have time to get worked out.

    It doesn't seem to be compatible with Mountain Lion.

    I just installed it. It has basically rendered Chrome completely unusable. It freezes as soon as it opens now. Chromuim as well. :/

    Installed with no issues so far. Although I don't use Chrome so I can't say anything about that.

    Installed on my rMBP.

    Chrome works fine.

    1Password reported a problem. I think Dropbox was slow to start up and 1Password had trouble finding a shared file. A reboot took care of it.

    No other problems thus far.

    see update below:

    -=-=-=-
    Just installed it; not good.

    - Iphoto is not opening anymore. Can't open my photo's anymore!
    - I see the screen now building up the image.
    - Word en Excel open slower.
    - I suddenly see the load icon (spinning rainbow wheel) a lot!

    Upside: battery seems to be draining less 'hard'.

    In short: I think they capped the CPU or something and I want to go back to the state before the update! :( (any tips if this is possible?)
    -=-=-=-

    After reboot; no problems anymore! Any I think my battery still lasts longer now.

    At first my iPhoto didn't show any images. Closed and reopened and it seems to be working fine now.


    1Password and Dropbox for me had no issues.

    Updated several hours ago, never had any issues. Chrome is fine, iPhoto is fine. Before the update, if I was just surfing, I could go about 9 hours on a battery. If I was working, I always plugged it in, so don't know. Haven't had it on battery since the update.

    I just updated mine and Mac word open twice as fast than it has. Also the app store opens lightning fast. DropBox woks with no problems. Seems as all animations is faster and snappier.

    Since Mountain Lion isn't released yet why would they release an update compatible with it.

    Ditto.

    The reboot took care of 1Password. Dropbox worked, it just seemed to open slowly during the first reboot.

    Also, no problems with iPhoto.

    CPU's running 10 deg C hotter but that could be due to a lot of other things. Everything else works fine.

    I see lots of problems reported in this thread alone. This, people, is why you don't jump to install updates as they come out.

    Figured since it messed with CPU configurations there may be problems in the initial release. Thanks for all the info guys! Let's hope Apple sorts this out soon!

    If it was necessary they would, I've had updates apply to seeded updates before. Since the GM of Mountain Lion is only about a week old I imagine the update is already incorporated.

    Yeah, I learned my lesson. Chrome still isn't working. I uninstalled, and I'm going to try and reinstall to see if that helps...

    Edit: reinstall didn't help

    Anybody with a Macbook from June 2012 DO this UPdate immediately. Apple has advertised these computers with up to 7 hours battery life productivity. After updating my battery life increased by 40%. I get roughly 10 hours battery life on my Macbook Pro 13" Mid 2012. And on idle 70% brightness i get 13hours life.
