Windows 10: Windows 10 optimization
Windows 10 optimization
Hi, I'm not having any notable issues, but I have a question for a little bit more experienced users.
I've recently upgraded ram from 2 GB to 16 GB and installed a ssd which is awesome, but I don't have the best CPU in the world. So, I was wondering is there anyway I can take less strain on my CPU by fully taking advantage of my new upgrades. I'm not new to tweaking I'm just looking for anything that'll help.
Not really. Upgrading ram and ssu is a bit like a sprinter in a race. He might get away from blocks quickly, but if he does not have the basic speed (cpu), he will always lose the race.
Obviously you can make sure you only start up programs you need, don't try and run too many apps simultaneously etc, experiment with browsers etc, but fundamentally not much you can do.
You might be able to overclock the cpu but no idea how to do this?
Alright, thanks. And I rather not overclock without a better cooling system.
This depends on the programs your running on a daily basis.
If a program, like a game for instance, needs a fast CPU to load data into RAM
then upgrading the CPU is your best bet. Any graphics related programs will
also too, like Photoshop. These need brute power to work fast and efficiently.
However most day to day activities, well no.
Windows "learns" what you run, and starts to cache data in memory in order
to speed up program loading. If your basically web surfing, doing lite video
What CPU do you have and full system specs?
IMHO upgrading a CPU would be my LAST upgrade. You have done what is best so far.
You could try Process Lasso.
I have an AMD Quad-Core E2-6110 1.5GHz which i believe is integrated.
Windows 10 Home x64

AMD Radeon R2 Graphics (which is definately integrated)
Seems like a nifty prog. I'll check it out. Thanks!
