The new Techtool Pro 8 is the most robust hardware diagnostic tool available for Macintosh. Easy to use for both home users and professionals, TechTool Pro utilizes full 64-bit compatibility to keep your Mac running at its best. TechTool Pro 8 brings with it some of the deepest hardware testing yet - testing components on your motherboard that no other utility can access. You can now test the sensors and fans on your Mac, along with the battery if you're using a Mac laptop. In addition, we've now integrated Protogo, so that you can create your own custom test drives for out in the field.
Techtool Pro Key Features:
TechTool Pro already tests the major components on your motherboard: RAM, Processor, Cache, etc. In TechTool Pro 8, we're taking it a step further, testing a wider variety of components on your Mac's motherboard. On some machines there are more than 100 electrical and temperature sensors that TechTool Pro will check. If any of those sensors report values outside of their acceptable operating range, the new Sensors test will let you know so that you can take the necessary steps to prevent a minor problem from becoming a major one.
If you've ever used a laptop for an extended period of time, you might have noticed that your Mac's palm rests can double as hand warmers. Every computer generates heat, and almost all of them use fans to cool themselves when components become too hot. It's important to make sure that all the fans in your computer are functional. The new Fans test spins up the fans in your Mac to make sure that they run at capacity and speed to ensure your Macintosh is running at its best.
MacBook models have one important feature that separates them from their desktop cousins - the battery. TechTool Pro now makes it easy to check on the health of that battery. The test reports cycle count, percent of total capacity remaining, along with the battery's overall condition so that you can use your Mac unplugged with confidence.
You can now take it with you
The portability of TechTool Protogo is now included with every copy of TechTool Pro. TechTool Protogo allows you to create a bootable diagnostic device that contains TechTool Pro and all of its most powerful tools as well as any of your own utilities you may wish to install. You can then use this device to boot, check, maintain, and repair Macintosh computers as needed. Simply launch Protogo, choose Protogo from the Mode menu, and use it to set up a diagnostic disk. Whether you have a fleet of computers to maintain for your business, or simply have your family's MacBooks to look after on the road, Techtool Pro 8's Protogo feature can give you access to all the tools you need. With your Protogo device, you can start up more Macs more quickly than with a traditional DVD, and have the tools to get more done.
