"Designed to help optimize your PC for smoother, more responsive game play in the latest PC games with the touch of a button, the AMD Fusion for Gaming utility helps achieve the performance edge previously only available to highly technical enthusiasts. It works by temporarily shutting down background processes and intensifying processor performance with AMD Boost. That means you can keep all the features of Microsoft? Windows Vista? ready for when you need them, but turn them off when you are ready to get down to serious business ? gaming."

http://www.istartedsomething.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/fusionsetup.jpg[/imThis will only work with AMD hardware. I also wrote up a small article about this and put it on the Gamers News Section - Frank.

We saw this back in June when we were at AMD but were told it was under NDA. They are also looking at how this can help battery life performance of their laptops as well.

It is a simple task that many people have done for eons. I am surprised none of the big boys have thought about it until now.

AMD Fusing for gaming beta does not support this version of Windows. Doesn't seem to install on Vista 64

Working well so far, always wondered why there weren't many programs like this before.

Same here, I get that alot at night...damn gnats.

Anyway, I'm using it at the moment, but it doesn't seem to be very effective on a 3 year old laptop playing 5 year old game :/

Doesn't Asus also do this with its 6 engine program?

It's a good idea,Microsoft should do this with Vista like when a game is opened. Also gamexp comes to mind.

yeah this is something which should be intergrated into windows itself, like how vista has alot of features which were 3rd-party on xp, so maybe the next windows could have this built in, like some 'game mode' or something

No. They control the fans speed, cpu clock, fsb, northbridge voltage, gpu clock, hdd, and other things. Basically when u aren't doing much everything is clocked down if on auto, on default settings it overclocks ur cpu 3% if you cpu usage goes up for a while. It works quite well, they don't shutdown antivirus, firewalls, and other stuff.

'tis a very good idea, and like previously mentioned, I'm surprised this hasn't been done before by the bigger companies.

Despite the plethora of sites out there instructing people how to turn off needless services to increase gaming performance, I'm still waiting for somebody to put up actual, real-world gains (eg, before vs after).

Otherwise, if I have to go through the hassle of shutting down dozens of different services and shutting down apps before launching a game (and then undo that after), or reboot a PC, only to gain an extra couple FPS, then it's not worth it IMO.

Bah. Should of put a warning in the first post that this works only on AMD processors.

After installing this on Vista 32bit and C2D processor, I was greeted with this:

Well, it is by AMD, why would it work on Intel?

Because the processor the applications and services are running on, got nothing to do with closing them and then re-opening them with this application (that is made by AMD)?
