Avast Game Mode is a function which disables certain features of the antivirus software to boost performance and free up system resources when playing games. It detects and optimizes the games you play automatically. It also supports customization, so that you can add particular games to its whitelist, ensuring they always have the right resources.
In addition to optimizing PC settings Game mode also removes background processes from the system and mutes notifications generated by Avast or Windows and it pauses Windows updates to allow you to play for hours without interruption. Moreover, it gives priority to CPU resources for your game and makes the most use of them to ensure you’re getting the highest possible gaming experience.
In contrast to traditional antivirus software, Avast Game Mode is specifically designed for gamers, allowing gamers with a more enjoyable gaming experience. Its sophisticated system can detect when a gamer is playing an online game and suspends tasks that consume a lot of resources, such as scanning or updating to reduce interference. This allows your computer to concentrate its resources on your games, resulting faster loading times and better gaming.
The game mode is accessible as a component of Avast software and can be turned on or disabled through its user interface. It is accessible by going to User Interface > Settings after which you can select “Components” and then either checking or unchecking the box next to Game Mode’. It is important to remember that even if you turn off the Game Mode, Avast’s real-time protection will remain in effect.
