|How to Improve Gaming Performance on a Windows 10 Laptop [Top 9 Performance Tweaks for Gamers] by Techbaze: 3:18 pm On January 1, 2021|
Features like Game Mode, improved graphic drivers, and support for Xbox Streaming make Windows 10 the go-to-choice for gamers, but are there other ways you can improve gaming performance on a Windows 10 laptop? The beautiful answer to that question is ‘yes’ and you are about to find out how.
How to Improve Gaming Performance on a Windows 10 Laptop
Use Game Mode
Let’s start with the obvious one. With the Creators’ Update of 2019, Microsoft decided to add a Lil’ something for gamers – a feature that optimizes the computer’s resources for gaming by cutting down the resources allocated to other tasks.
If you do not have Game Mode turned on, here’s what to do:
As long as your laptop supports Game Mode then you’re on to the promise of faster framerate.
Change to a high-performance power plan
Yes, the power plan is meant to help you conserve the battery, especially when using a laptop. However, for the duration of time, you are playing a game, you could always switch to a high-performance power plan.
This will make your PC perform better, obviously.
Tweak your active hours
One thing we are familiar with when it comes to Windows 10 is the frequent updates, which can be annoying as they are usually unannounced.
However, to keep an update from happening when you are in the middle of a game, change your active hours.
This means Windows 10 will only update when you are inactive. If you need a reminder before it happens, though, then go back to ‘Windows Update’ and select ‘Advanced options’. Set it to show you a reminder and that is tweak number 3 that improves gaming performance on a Windows 10 laptop!
Install DirectX 12
DirectX 12 is an application that serves as a middle-man between your game and computer, telling the computer what it should do. The advantage is that it not only increases framerate but can also draw resources from more than one CPU core at the same time.
Install it by:
Change your visual effects settings
When it comes to improving the gaming performance on a Windows 10 laptop, visual effects matter, and luckily, this OS offers options even though it may affect the available processing power of your PC.
Tweak mouse acceleration
If you are playing a game like Call of Duty, then you should turn off mouse acceleration because the setting may mess with your accuracy since it makes your mouse move based on detection of movements and speed (not good).
The ‘Focus Assist feature’ of Windows 10 lets you specify when you want to receive notifications and how. When playing a game, notification bells and popups can be very distracting, so what you can do is to:
Upgrade online gaming
You can also improve gaming performance on a Windows 10 laptop, even if it’s online. To reduce network traffic problems, you can upgrade to something faster.
Get an SSD
Switch from an HDD to an SDD and save yourself the loading time. It can be quite expensive but it is worth the investment as it can cut downloading time from 30 seconds to 3. Not bad, huh?
Ensure your GPU drivers are updated
When your driver is out-of-date, you battle bugs and glitches. We advise that you do not ignore your notifications to update and you can update directly from Windows Properties but it is best to do it from the manufacturer’s website and choose your GPU model.
If you do not know the model,
Many other tweaks can improve gaming performance on a Windows 10 laptop, such as managing steam auto-updates and disabling Nagle’s Algorithm but try these out and let us know the improvement you notice!
