Avast game mode is a distinct feature that disables certain aspects of the antivirus software to free up system resources and enhance performance while you play games. It automatically detects the games you play and optimizes their performance to ensure they get the best performance. It allows customization, so you can add specific games to its “whitelist” to ensure that they receive the resources needed.
In addition to optimizing PC settings, the game mode removes background processes from the system and disables notifications from Avast or Windows, as well as suspends Windows updates to allow you to play for hours without interruption. It also makes use of CPU resources and maximizes them to provide you with the most enjoyable gaming experience.
Unlike traditional antivirus software, Avast Game Mode is specifically designed for gamers, allowing an enhanced gaming experience. Its smart system recognizes when a gamer is playing games and then suspends resource-intensive activities such as scanning or updating to reduce interference. This lets the computer devote more of its resources to your game, resulting in quicker loading times and enhanced gaming.
The game mode is offered as a part of the Avast software and can be turned on or disabled via its user interface. It is accessible by going to User Interface > Settings and selecting “Components”. Then you can select or uncheck the box that appears next to “Game Mode. It is important to know that even if you disable the Game Mode, Avast’s real-time protection will remain in effect.
