Avast game mode is a unique feature that disables specific aspects of the antivirus program to free up your system resources and increase performance when you play games. It automatically detects games you unveil and optimizes their performance to ensure they get the best performance. It is customizable, meaning you can add certain games to its “whitelist” to ensure that they always receive the resources they require.
The game mode optimizes PC settings and blocks background processes, blocks notifications from Avast, Windows, and it pauses Windows Updates to let you play in complete silence. It also optimizes CPU resources and increases them to give you the best gaming experience.
Avast Game Mode, unlike traditional antivirus software, was designed specifically for gamers and offers gamers with a more enjoyable gaming experience. Its intelligent system detects when a person is playing an activity and stops activities that use up a lot of resources like scanning or updating to limit interference. This lets the computer devote more of its resources to your game, which results in quicker loading times and more enjoyable gaming.
It is available in the Avast software as a component. It can be turned off or activated through its user interface. It is accessible by going to User Interface Settings, then selecting “Components”. Then you can either check or uncheck the box next to “Game Mode. Even if you disable Avast’s Game Mode, the real-time protection will continue to be active.
