Avast Game Mode
Avast Game Mode is a feature which disables certain features of the antivirus software to improve performance and free up system resources while playing games. It automatically detects games you unveil and optimizes their performance to ensure they get the highest performance. It also supports customization, so you can add specific games to its whitelist, ensuring they always have the right resources.
The game mode optimizes PC settings and blocks background processes, blocks notifications from Avast, Windows, and pauses Windows Updates to allow you to play without interruption. It also optimizes CPU resources and increases their use to provide you with the most enjoyable gaming experience.
Avast Game Mode, unlike traditional antivirus software, is designed specifically for gamers and provides gamers with a more enjoyable gaming experience. Its intelligent system recognizes when games are being played and stops resource-intensive activities such as updates or scans to reduce interference. This allows the computer to devote more of its resources to the game, resulting in faster loading times and enhanced game play.
The game mode is accessible as a component of Avast software and can be activated or disabling via its user interface. It is accessible by going to User Interface > Settings and selecting “Components”. Then, you can check or uncheck the box next ‘Game Mode. Even if you turn off Avast’s Game Mode, the real-time protection will be in effect.
