Hi guys! I have installed Mountain Lion on my Asus VX7. I got almost everything working but I have some problem with CPU and it's frequency monitoring. Everything works cool, OS sees all 4 cores, interface animation goes smooth, I can play native games with a full graphic acceleration BUT! For example when I'm workin in Logic Pro, Studio One or Ableton and resizing windows inside those apps (like piano roll, mixer) it goes pretty laggy... Resizing the browser window is laggy too...
I tried thoose programs in windows 7 (but Logic) and resizing goes laggy only when I set "battery saving" mode in TurboBoost. When I set "high perfomance" mode, every animation goes smooth.
So, I suppose when I'm on OSX ML my CPU frequency is pretty low... I can only suppose because any monitoring software doesn't work for me (like HWmonitor, SMC monitor, CPU-i). I-STAT working but it doesn't show the CPU frequency, only usage...
