Is my CPU power management working?

Hi everyone,


I've used the 'clean Clover install' guide to get Mojave up and running on my Lenovo M93p Tiny, with 8Gb RAM and an i7-4765T CPU. Everything seems to be going well - the mix of Lilu, WhateverGreen and ALC means that I have full IGFX through DisplayPort, with audio going through that interface to my monitor and working fine too. I don't have anything in ACPI/patched in my Clover folder, though.


So I'm just wondering if the CPU power management is working? Here are some screengrabs of Intel's CPU readout software running at various points. Any chance someone with far more knowledge and experience than me could look at these and tell me if the CPU power management is working based on my config.plist settings (sorted through Clover Config)?


Hope someone can help.


Regards to all,

I'd say CPU power management is indeed working. Specs of this Haswell Quad-Core i7-4765T stipulate a nominal frequency of 2.00GHz with turbo boost up to 3.00GHz, within the following conditions:

  • boost to 2.60GHz (4 cores)
  • boost to 2.70GHz (3 cores)
  • boost to 2.90GHz (2 cores)
  • boost to 3.00GHz (1 core)


As such, you won't see Turbo boost to 3.00GHz very often but more likely 2.6GHz to 2.9GHz in most cases (because CPU rarely operates on a single core). I believe this is rather well represented in your screenshots.
