Re: [sc-dev] New PowerBooks, SC and CPU... ick...

Thanks James... but the CHUD tools download mentioned there doesn't appear to include the CPU manager.

Here is the article from Apple... the relevant stuff is at the bottom... still looking around to see if there is a way to bypass this mode.

Basically, the ability to control the processor speed is gone on the

speed for CPU load. Problem is, this isn't very speedy (in SC terms
at least). So, code that used to run at about a stable 40% on my old
PB, now runs at 60% with HUGE spikes on the new one.
