First new version of ThrottleStop since April is now available
TechPowerup has released version 8.50 of ThrottleStop, the first update in nearly seven months. The main improvement is enabling initial support for Intel’s Goldmont architecture in Apollo Lake, the family which contains the mobile Celeron N3350 and N3450 as well as the mobile Pentium N4200 processors.
Those who prefer things to be minimalistic will be glad that they now can double-click to toggle mini mode on and off, and the option to disable the notification area icon which persistently shows as the programme runs in the background.
ThrottleStop is a programme for adjusting system metrics not ordinarily available to the user on most laptops, with typical usage being to lower mobile processor voltage to reduce thermal throttling. It is similar in functionality to Intel’s Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU) but is popular among enthusiasts who enjoy the powerful tweaking options and resource efficiency that ThrottleStop offers.
