Turbo Boost Switcher overview

Turbo Boost Switcher is a little application for Mac computers that allows to enable and/or disable the Turbo Boost feature. It installs a precompiled kernel extension (32 or 64 bits depending on your system) that updates the Turbo Boost MSR register, so It will ask for your admin password when using it. It’s installed on your Mac status bar.

  • Visually know if Turbo Boost is enabled or disabled at any time.
  • Enable / Disable Turbo Boost manually, getting up to a 25% more battery life and lowering down the CPU Temp up to 20ºC. (check this).
  • Configure it to disable Turbo Boost automatically at launch.
  • Enable / Disable Turbo Boost automatically for a set of apps (only on Pro version).
  • Set default mode for Turbo Boost Enabled or not (On or Off)
  • Disable Turbo Boost when battery charger is not connected (only on Pro version).
  • OSX Notifications integration (only on Pro version).
  • Asks for root password only once (only on Pro version).
  • Check your CPU temp and fan speed.
  • Set it to open at login.
  • Automatically restore Turbo Boost on exit.

What’s new in version 2.12.0

Updated on Nov 01 2022

  • New Temperature auto mode (only on PRO): After a long wait and a lot of requests, it’s finally here.., an auto mode that allows you configure Turbo Boost to be disabled depending on CPU temperature.
  • Global hotkeys! (FREE and PRO): Now you can enable / disable Turbo Boost at anytime without having to remove your hands from keyboard.., no matter the app currently in use since the hotkeys are now global! This is also another feature requested by many of you.
  • Fahrenheit in Charts (FREE and PRO): Now charts also allow to display data using Fahrenheit scale when configured that way…, and yes, this is now also a free feature.
  • Fixed and issue that prevented charts to refresh after a long period of time sleeping on certain mac models.
  • Improved performance when checking auto modes configuration. All users of macOS Big Sur should update to this version, since Apple changed the way kexts are loaded and improvements were made.
  • Other minor fixes, improvements and translation fixes.
  • New install procedure (FREE and PRO): Due to some Apple Changes, now the install procedure has changed just a bit and you must drag a folder with the app and resources instead only one .app file.

This is really effective. Before my MacBook Air - 2020 running Big Sur (beta) was very noisy No problem at all Highly recommended The CPU speed reduction while running this (during surfing the web, streaming youtube,) is very acceptable compared to the temperature reduction. Amazing kit, should be standard Apple functionality. Worth the money: if you can afford it you can support the developer Ruben Garcia Perez thumbs up man.

This is really effective. Before my MacBook Pro mid-2015 would rarely get more than 5 hours of life from its battery, but now it easily gets 6 hours. Highly recommended.

Since Endurance incorporates Turbo Switcher's functionality, but adds other power-saving measures (like screen dimming and app hiding/sleep), wouldn't Endurance be more effective?

Bought the Pro version (some time ago) and I reinstalled it again (v2.7.0 in High Sierra 10.13.5). The CPU speed reduction while running this (during mobile surfing, document typing, iTunes) is very acceptable compared to the battery life extension and temperature reduction. CPU temp down from 65C to 40C and battery life doesn't seem to reduce while working under normal working conditions. Amazing kit, should be standard Apple functionality. Worth the money: if you can fork out $$$ for a Mac, you can support the developers $!.
