Smart PC Utilities has shipped Game Fire 5, the latest edition of its PC gaming performance booster.
This release brings official support for Windows 10 – both 32 and 64-bit editions – but finally sees Windows XP support dropped.
A new optimization engine can examine and tweak even more components, including services, processes, scheduled tasks and Registry settings (only some of these are available in the free build).
The Applications section now has a very capable set of process management tools, including minimize/ maximize, end process/ end process tree, set priority, set affinity, optimize memory, open location, more.
The My Games feature optionally imports default Windows games, and allows users to customise game information and thumbnails.
The My Games desktop widget can be launched with a customisable hotkey, and has been optimised to be faster and more reliable.
In the $24.95 PRO edition, Live Gaming Mode has been replaced with Live Optimization, which monitors running processes and tries to allocate system resources where they’re needed most.
Predefined Gaming Profiles now make it easier to set up your system. (Although, if you prefer manual tweakery, Game “Adviser” has even more options to explore.)
And if you’re worried about the effects of any extra load on your system, no problem: Game Fire PRO not only monitors system temperatures, it can also raise an alarm if they get too high.
Game Fire 5 is now available for Windows Vista – 10.
