DW Spectrum Client V4 Is Using Extraordinary Resources On Macbook Pro

I just upgraded a BJCUBE-LX to latest version 4. The client software seems to be using an insane amount of resources on a Macbook Pro. After being open for a couple of minutes, the Mac gets very warm, internal fan is running, & I can pretty much watch the battery level drop. I just tried the same thing on a brand new MacBook Air and it does the same thing. Any of the version 3's were not like this at all. Curious if this is common or known issue? Maybe there are settings we need to change?

Short **** ********: in the given patch we optimized a couple of places which should save around few% GPU power usage(depending on your specific hardware and scenarios) + we introduced a client setting Local Settings -> Advanced wich limits the number of updates UI does up to 30Fps, but reduces power consumption a lot( optional).
