What is thermal throttling
Monitor and control CPU thermal throttling in OS X
I recently came across the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility for Windows. I tried it under Bootcamp Windows and it was very interesting to find out in which situations the CPU of my MacBook Pro (mid-2012) is thermally throttled. The tool is also used to change the CPU voltage to reduce thermal throttling. However, this option was not available.
So my questions are:
- Is there a similar tool for monitoring CPU (thermal) throttling on OS X (Yosemite)? Answering this part entitles you to accept the answer ;-)
- Why was the option to change the CPU voltage under Bootcamp not available? Is this function not supported by my CPU (i7 2.6 GHz Ivy Bridge 3720QM)?
- If my CPU is able to change its voltage, is there any way to decrease the CPU voltage in OS X?
Disclaimer: Yes, I know this could potentially damage my hardware. No warnings necessary ;-)
To monitor throttling, you can do the following:
In terminal and watch output:
If in some moments it is less than 100, it means that the CPU is throttled.
I would also like a utility to perform this function.
I don't know how to monitor this in OSX, but there is a way to reduce it: SMC Fan Control. This utility allows you to manually adjust the speed of your fans, which will cool the machine and reduce the throttling a little.
