CPUPowerUp is a simple application that allocates more Processor Power to the frontmost application.

By how much does it increase speed?

I have been asked this question a lot because there are lots of applications similar to mine that claim to improve by up to 30%. I am distributing this free, so I am going to be honest from my experience and mishaps trying to tweak performance, using software alone it is ALMOST impossible to increase to that speed without affecting the Mac OS X multitasking abilities. The way I increase power will, I am letting you know up front, decrease some of your multitasking abilites (just a little). I more...

This program is nice but Process Wizard is better IMHO. It works in the menubar plus it uses less memory. (free too!)

Ahh, but it automatically makes the frontmost application a higher priority, something I can't do with Renicer when I play GhostRecon.
