"Identify apps that increase power usage (graphics)"

April 08, 2013  |  By mburke543

 |  Version: gfxCardStatus 2.3


Easy, simple, single function. Does what it is supposed to.
Identified program using more power on Macbook Pro (Lion)


Didn't work on my Macbook Pro (older model still on Snow Leopard).


Simple to install and use. Tells you if it won't work on your machine.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.3
  • OS X Lion support!!
  • Huge preferences window overhaul - now looks like a standard OS X preferences panel.
  • Graphical icons in the menu bar are no longer the default - they are now text. See the FAQ for info on how to change back to graphical icons.
  • Added a preference for "smart" menu bar icons - e.g. use the first letter of the current GPU ('n' for NVIDIA, 'i' for Intel, 'a' for AMD). Doesn't apply to legacy dual-NVIDIA GPU machines.
  • Added Czech, Russian, Ukranian, and Slovak localizations.
  • Removed power source info from menu, as it was unnecessary.
  • Moved to standard OS X app about box.
  • Fixed some memory leaks.
  • Enormous refactoring of the codebase.
