I am attempting to install atlas on a Macbook Pro OS X 10.8 - I receive the warning about CPU throttling mentioned in the docs. It says that without being able to disable this, ATLAS won't perform well. After a significant amount of googling/stack overflowing, I have been unable to locate a way to disable this feature. Has anyone on this list had experience with turning off CPU throttling on mac os x, or should this be considered an essentially unsupported OS?
Additionally, does the variable clock speed associated with Intel Turboboost invalidate ATLAS timings?
