how do you turn off one of the cores on the mbp???
Is it from the developer tools perhaps? I have a Processor icon in my System Preferences on my G5 which I can disable a processor...
Just curious, why would you want to turn off a core? Is it for battery reasons?
heat and batterey
i dont see a processer icon in my preferences
I don't even think you can with the CHUD tools...
I'm not sure if it is in option on the intel models, but try going to System Preferences > Energy Saver > Options > Processor Performance.
If you set it for Low, I'm not sure it would be turning a core off per se, but I think it would help the heat and battery issues.
If you install the CHUD tools from apple's site you will be able to turn off a core on the macbook pro
Here is the direct link to the CHUD tools:
I stand corrected.
how do i do it now that i download and installed it???
search processor in spotlight?
thanks I'll see if this works
Just go into System Preferences > Processor
i got it, thanks everyone for all your help
personally, from first my dad's dual core imac, and now a friends' dual core imac...i thus want to throw both cores into the pit of hell and get a working, reliable G5 in there
i would rather get a pc if it has anything to do with intel
So wait... is the CHUD developer tools the package that I need to download? The one that takes like an hour to download?
Anyone have a link to an info page about CHUD or what features it has and it's system requirements? (like do you need X11 installed, or just the base system).
Checked out VT/MU but there isn't much info there other than it works on PPC/Intel, and googled to Apple developer tools page but it has no mention of CHUD, and couldn't find the page that they have that links to the download, just the download itself.
Anyone else care to elaborate on this a bit more, or link a site that can please? I'm suddenly very interested in this.
What you do is just go to Google and type in 'CHUD tools' and click on the first Apple link there is. Make a free account, and then download it. t should take about an hour to download on cable internet.
Turning off a core won't help you with that. If it did, then MacOS X would do that already.
