    Can it be done? Haven't seen anything leading me to believe so but I thought I might try.

    Am I missing something? When I try and display clock speeds, temps, etc, I get an error like this?

    I've researched this extensively. There's no way to do this under OSX for apple GPUs.

    Zeus is essentially a GUI of the NVClock darwin port. The binaries required for the latest mac GPUs are not available, so it doesn't work. Not unless Apple release a firmware update for one of their GPUs. Zeus is mainly for hackintoshes with other types of GPU.

    Bummer, doing some overclocking of the already underclocked card would be great for Steam for Mac gaming. CSS runs fine but I want that extra oomph.

    I would take a small heat increase and battery drain for some better performance.

    Combined with undervolting could cancel out and achieve a faster machine with almost no side effects.
