Project Deets

Once upon a time, I created a command line tool, the SocPowerBuddy; the soul purpose of which was to provide real per-core frequency metrics on Apple Silicon without needing sudo. I thought that it would be cool to make an efficient little menu bar app based on it, which doesn’t need a daemon or a kext!

I hope to add Intel support someday, but to follow my personal rule for this project, it needs to be a rootless implementation…


You can download the latest version here!


For Now, you’ll need an Apple Silicon machine running Big Sur (macOS 11) or newer to use this app.
