What exactly is Real-Time Optimization?
Hello all and thanks for any help!
I'm an IT professional with 20+ years of experience and a computer science degree. I'm new to bitdefender but have used practically all the other antivirus products. I am switching to bitdefender because I like how it has a Game Profile mode.
When I enabled the game profile mode I saw at the bottom of the page you can turn on or off "Real-Time Optimization". It is off by default... I googled around and not much can be found. I looked in the actual documentation for the Antivirus 2017 and it has one quick paragraph that really doesn't tell me exactly what it does. This is what it says:
Bitdefender Real-Time Optimization is a plugin that improves your system performance silently, in the background, making sure that you are not interrupted while you are in a profile mode. Depending on the CPU load, the plugin monitors all processes, focusing on those that take up a higher load, to adjust them to your needs.
Say what? That makes little to no sense to me. It adjusts the processes that are taking high CPU? How can it possibly do that? If a game is taking 70% CPU for example, what is it going to do to focus on it?
To me it sounds like it is going to introduce more computing resource load for it to constantly check CPU and applications... is it really worth it if I am trying to optimize my gaming system?
Thanks for any help and info!
