This program is a command tools that support Haswell and Broadwell Mac Device for undervoltage.
This use 'Intel Overclock Mailbox' for control the voltage offset, Your system may locked of the OC Mailbox and not avilable for undervoltage.
Undervoltage can reduced heat and sustain Turbo boost longer, provide longer battery preformance,although may unstable for the system.
This program do not provided GUI interface because this tools only load the MSR driver when apply, amend or read, the MSR driver will load and unloaded immediately for more security and lowest resource usage, after you test well, you can use our tools build up the launchd for automative apply on startup and maintance the setting transparently, please read below for detail.
This program support macOS 10.12 or above, however need to switch off the SIP for unsigned kext under Recovery mode:
Push Cmd+R when boot to Recovery mode, select Terminal at toolbar and enter:
csrutil enable --without kext
After reboot, ensure the kext and the command tool files on some directory.
You can view your current voltage offset,CPU freqency,power and temperture setting by following command:
You can continous monitor the CPU freqency,power and temperture by using:
Six type of voltage offset you can change, however we only suggest undervoltage of CPU and GPU.
./voltageshift offset CPU GPU CPUCache SystemAgency AnalogyIO DigtalIO
for example reduced CPU -50mv and GPU -50mv
./voltageshift offset -50 -50
If setting too low the system will freezing, please switch OFF fully and turn on computer for turn back to 0mv.
After you test well and comfort the setting, you can apply the launchd: (require sudo root)
sudo ./voltageshift buildlaunchd CPU GPU CPUCache SystemAgency AnalogyIO DigtalIO (UpdateMins)
The last is the update interval of the tool check and changed, the Default value is 160min, deepsleep (suspend to Disk) will reset of the voltage setting, as sleep (suspend to memory) will not change the sleep value, it will scheduled check the setting in peroid, and amend if need. 0 for only apply the setting when bootup.
