Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.0
  • Totally overhauled preferences system under the hood - fixed super annoying issue with preferences not saving for some users
  • Added Danish, Swedish, Portugese, Spanish, and Dutch localizations
  • Fixed issue w/ preferences window length truncating German localizations
  • Icons in menu bar are now white when clicked instead of black
  • More sensible "d" icon instead of "n" for legacy users - "i" and "d" represent integrated and discrete, while "i" and "n" represent Intel and NVIDIA
  • Popup when using gfxCardStatus on an unsupported machine
  • Various bugfixes and refactoring
  • There is now officially a license - the New BSD License backs gfxCardStatus and its source code

Power Source-Based Switching For 9400M/9600M GT Machines!

This feature is disabled by default. If you wish to use it, simply enable it in gfxCardStatus preferences and explicitly set which mode you wish to use on a per-power source basis with the segmented controls. If you do not enable it, gfxCardStatus will behave exactly as before.
