CPUfrequency for Mac1.1

19 November 2003

Terminal scripts display actual processor speed.

What is CPUfrequency for Mac

CPUfrequency is a group of Terminal shell scripts (sysctl hw.cpufrequency) that determine the speed that your processor is actually running at.

If the number displayed is significantly lower than what it should be, your Power Manager has most likely gone wonky and you need to reset it. Shut down your computer. Hold down SHIFT+CTRL+OPTION+POWER for 5 seconds, then start up again. Run this script again to see the improvements! WARNING: This will reset your preferences (clock, etc) to their defaults and erase any RAM disks you may have.

What's new in CPUfrequency

Version 1.1 now shows the speed in MHz instead of Hz.

Hi, I made this, but I just want everyone to know that while the script works, the shell command that it relies on doesn't function properly in OS X 10.3. If Apple ever fixes this, it'll work like a charm. whoo-hoo! Sorry.

Works as advertised, although the advice it gives after reporting the clock speed has me wondering about the logic behind it. Maybe an explanation of how the power manager affects the speed would help. Works well for its purpose.
