Do you know that your computer does not perform at its maximum capacity? Hardware manufacturers always integrate some type of performance throttling such that the processor never utilizes its maximum capacity. Manufacturers throttle the CPU in goodwill to keep the device safe. Throttling enables the computer to reduce heat generated while functioning; it also allows the computer to operate using less electricity. However, there are times when the user needs more processor power for computing tasks.
You can enable, disable or tweak setting for each core, such as:
- disable Turbo (this will reduce the noise)
- view temperature
- set multiplier
- log events
With this application, you can free your PC to perform a maximum processor capacity. The application window is segmented into two; the left part which gives the user various options used to nullify CPU throttling while the right part of the application window monitors the multiple threads on the CPU.
If it is important to monitor the power consumption while using this application to ensure you do not exceed the power capacity of your adapter.
Do note that using this application is at your own risk, it can potentially cause damage to the power adapter of your computer unit.
