Like it, it allows me to mitigate a thermal problem at the secondary heatsink by toning down the workload of my 2010 i5 iMac. Buying a new iMac later in the year. This app allows me to extend the life of the present iMac:)

Hey, do you think you could make something like gfxCardStatus, but works with 2012 rMBP on Mojave? gfxCardStatus won't stay set and everything freezes for a second when it switches between integrated and discrete now.
