CPUPowerUp for Mac1.b02

23 August 2004

Allocate more power to frontmost app.

What is CPUPowerUp for Mac

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 wont go into details but here is a little peek:

Programs above 18mb - 5 programs over 18mb each using 1 window speeds up 15%, smaller programs using 2 windows, 20% max.

These speeds differ according to CPU Speed... Your Mileage May Vary!

What's new in CPUPowerUp

Version 1.b02:
  • Improved GUI
  • different implementation
  • choice in whether to log or not
  • better memory usage means more for you!

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