Use all the processor power you paid for!
Almost all modern
computers have at least two processors, which are generally referred to
as “cores”. Some even have four. Unfortunately, Windows often doesn’t
manage your multiple cores very well, so you’re not actually getting
the full multi-processor power you paid for.
Ashampoo Core Tuner
enables you to use the full power of all your cores. For instant
results you just need to select Auto-Optimize to optimize all the
programs you are running or Boost to give more power to a single
You can also fine-tune individual processes, display a
live view of the current workloads of all your processor cores and
enhance the overall performance of your system with additional tools.
Instant one-click results
You don’t have to have a computer science degree to get all the
benefits of Core Tuner. The program manages your processor cores for
you to make full use of their power.
• One-click Auto-Optimize
intelligently assigns the load of all the programs you’re currently
running to make best use of all your processor cores.
Boost does the same for individual programs. Just select the program
from the list and click Boost to give it more processor power.
• Live View shows you how all your processor cores are working in real time.
Fine-tuning for users who want more
If you want to really max out your machine’s performance you can
manually fine-tune the core workload settings for every program you
You can set the “priority” in five levels to adjust the
amount of processor power each program gets. You can also specify how
many processor cores each program gets to use. This can deliver
particularly good results with modern graphics and video editing
programs and other applications that make full use of multiple
Every time you change a program’s settings a
“profile” containing your changes is saved automatically and can be
reused whenever you want. You can quickly return to your original
settings or reload the profile to activate the saved settings in a
You can also kill (terminate) programs that are stuck and processes that you suspect of malicious behavior.
Additional performance-enhancing tools Ashampoo Core Tuner comes with two very useful additional tools that further enhance the power of your computer:
• Services Manager lists the background programs (“services”) that
Windows starts automatically even though most users don’t need them. It
explains what they are and enables you to turn them off. In addition to
making more processor power and memory available this can also improve
security, because some of these automatic services are actually
security and privacy hazards.
• StartUp Manager lists all the
programs and utilities that are started automatically every time you
run Windows and lets you disable them if you don’t need them. Many
applications automatically install such auto-start programs without
asking or telling you and they then just run in the background all the
time, wasting processor power and memory. This can also be used to
identify malicious programs, which often also install themselves to
