Avast Game Mode

By 17.10.2023No Comments

Avast Game Mode is a feature that disables certain aspects of the antivirus software to boost performance and free up system resources when playing games. It analyzes and optimizes games you play automatically. It lets you customize it, so you can add specific games to its ”whitelist” to ensure they always get the resources required.

In addition to optimizing PC settings it also removes background processes from the system and mutes notifications triggered by Avast or Windows, as well as suspends Windows updates to allow you to enjoy your game without interruption. It also prioritizes CPU resources and maximizes their use to provide you with the most enjoyable gaming experience.

Avast Game Mode, unlike traditional antivirus software, was created specifically for gamers and provides gamers with a more enjoyable gaming experience. Its intelligent system recognizes when the game is in play and shuts down resource-intensive tasks such as updates or scans to minimize interference. This lets your computer focus its resources on your games, which results in quicker loading times and better game play.

The game mode is accessible as a part of Avast software and can be turned on or deactivated via its user interface. It can be activated through the User Interface > Settings and then selecting ”Components” and then either selecting or unchecking the box next to ”Game Mode’. It is important to note that even if you disable the Game Mode, Avast’s real-time protection is still active.
