Avast Game Mode

Avast Game Mode is a function that disables specific aspects of the antivirus software to enhance performance and free up your system resources while playing games. It detects and optimizes the games you play automatically. It is customizable, meaning you can add specific games to its “whitelist” to ensure that they always receive the resources needed.

The game mode optimizes PC settings and disables background processes, mutes notifications from Avast, Windows, and it pauses Windows Updates to allow you to play for hours. It also makes use of CPU resources and maximizes them to give you the best gaming experience.

Avast Game Mode, unlike traditional antivirus software, was created specifically for gamers and provides an enhanced gaming experience. Its smart system recognizes when a player is playing a game and suspends resource-intensive activities such as scanning or updating to limit interference. This lets the computer dedicate more of its resources to your game, resulting in faster loading times and more enjoyable gameplay.

The game mode is offered as a part of Avast software which can be enabled or disabled through its user interface. It can be found by going to User Interface > Settings after which you can select components and either selecting or removing the checkbox next to the word ‘Game Mode’. Even if you turn off Avast’s Game Mode, the real-time protection will remain active.
