TBS – New Version – 2.9.0

Hello there!

A new update of Turbo Boost Switcher is available, 2.9.0, for both free and pro versions! As told on a previous post, the version is ready since several weeks ago, but wanted to hold it back just to verify full compatibility with macOS Catalina. Apple released several beta versions where the app worked flawlessly, so I think time has come :).

  • Notarization: Both free and pro binaries have been reviewed by Apple and notarized using my Developer ID.
  • Disable monitoring: A longly requested feature so you can enable / disable monitoring at will. In order to do so, just click on the new checkbox next to refresh rate. Of course, all the options related to this feature, like status bar info, will be also enabled / disabled accordingly. This is available for both free and pro versions.

  • [PRO only] New Fan Speed Ato mode!: Finally! here comes another feature longly requested by many of you! . It allows to set a threshold to disable Turbo Boost when fan speed goes over the configured rpm, and gets back enabled when lowered to another configurable value.

  • Several translations fixes.
  • Some dark mode fixes and other minor improvements.

Of course, as with previous versions, it’s compatible also with macOS Catalina.

Update 2.9.1: (November 30) – Fix for this: There is a bug on macOS Catalina 10.15.1 when using an external monitor and vertical alignment between main one and external one. It doesn’t happen when side by side alignment. It has already been reported to Apple and it causes some status bar apps to only display dropdown menus when clicking on external monitor. The 2.9.1 contains a workaround for this. No need to update if using Mojave or any other previous version of macOS.

In order to update, just click on “Check for updates…” option from within the app.

Hope you like it!

Best 🙂

    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.

    Downloaded Pro, really excellent job. Feature Idea: Auto-Switch based on an external display connected/disconnected

    Amazing tool !
    I’ve come across your tool randomly and I can say that I’m not disappointed.
    My MacBook Pro 16 i7 base model had just a shy of 4h30 to 5h of battery doing Xcode dev and surfing documentation.
    With your tool enable I’ve able to push it to 7h today with luminosity to about half.

    Thank you so much for you work.

    Thank you for developing this app and continuing support! Glad the ability to disable the monitoring is a great feature, as I use a separate program for that. Much appreciated all around.
