Thus, Gaming Mode will induce this new highest performance power plan, and also make a few tweaks to the behavior of ProBalance - which will keep background processes from interfering with your game play.
Quote from: Jeremy Collake on February 14, 2017, 12:06:36 PMThat could certainly be accomplished (as you have!), so I'm thinking maybe I should consider adding this in v9 while I"m working on it.The request is basically: Go out of gaming mode if the game is not in the foreground, then re-enter when it goes back into foreground. Right?As for what it does NOW, it excludes the process from ProBalance action and adjusts some variables in ProBalance's background activity.Thanks

It was a guestimate.Its 1600~mhz vs 4500mhz here, 1.08v vs 1.33vI'd say its more than just a few watts...Roughly temperatures from balanced to high perf increase by 10 celsius. And that is with minimal load surging through that 4500mhz. Coretemp shows some 20 watts more usage from idle to full clock without load, which is probably also a questimate based on vcore/clockspeed etc.. but still.Are you sure your power profile even adjusts and locks coreclock? because it doesnt on 99% of the PC's as first of all Power States in bios are wrongly set (C1E, C3/C6, Speedstep, etc)Even from auto (enabled) to manual enabled and disabled can work differently on buggy bios ;-)

I believe what it does is, it automatically reassigns various processes to a single Core, temporarily disables some services and assigns High priority to the game. I was wondering if something like that can be incorporated into Process Lasso as well?A friend of mine owns the application, and he says that while PL kept things fluid, it didn't really boost performance like CPUCores did (in CSGO). He has a 2500K machine. I personally didn't try it yet but don't really want to spend more $ behind process optimization than I did with PL :3

BTW PL does this by default automatically.On setting priority to high on some processes, you also have to be careful, its much better to lower priorities of back ground processes than to raise a few focused processes.That said having affinities and priority change for some processes while running a game or performance process maybe a positive thing, it just depends on usage and HW, that would have to be implimented into PL.
