MacRumors contributor Steve Moser discovered references to High Power Mode in the macOS Monterey beta. This new setting is the opposite of "Low Power Mode," which aims to decrease system performance to prolong battery life. The new mode will only be available on the 16-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 Max chip, not the 14-inch model or models with the M1 Pro.
Here's how Apple describes 'High Power' mode...
"Your Mac will optimize performance to better support resource-intensive tasks. This may result in louder fan noise."
The 16-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Max chip is available to pre-order now. macOS Monterey will be released on October 25.
