Avast Game Mode is a function that disables certain aspects of the antivirus software to improve performance and free up resources on your system while playing games. It optimizes and detects games you play automatically. It is customizable, meaning you can add certain games to its “whitelist” to ensure that they are always receiving the resources they require.
The game mode optimizes PC settings and disables background processes, blocks notifications from Avast, Windows, and stops Windows Updates to allow you to play for hours. It also makes use of CPU resources and maximizes them to provide you with the most enjoyable gaming experience.
As opposed to the traditional antivirus software Avast Game Mode is specifically created for gamers to offer an enhanced gaming experience. Its sophisticated system can detect when a person is playing games and then suspends activities that use up a lot of resources like scanning or updating to minimize interference. This allows your computer to devote its resources to your games, leading to quicker loading times and better gaming.
It is available in the Avast software as a component that is able to be disabled or activated through its user interface. It can be activated through the User Interface Settings menu by selecting “Components” and then either checking or unchecking the box next to “Game Mode’. It is important to note that if you disable the Game Mode, Avast’s real-time protection remains active.
