Dual Core Optimizer?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I just set up a nice cheap build for my sis with an AMD 4050e in it. I was wondering if I should get the AMD dual core optimizer. I have already tried to install it, but it doesn't seem to want to install. The system is running on windows vista home premium 32 bit.

Any help appreciated.

It is not needed on Vista, or an up-to-date XP for that matter.

it probably is installed. Theres nothing to run its just like a driver, just sits there and "optimizes" your pc. I really cant tell the difference tho...

It comes with Bioshock so it might help a tiny bit in games but overall it does nothing.

It is suppose to help performance in games it seems. Some people say it helps and others say it doesn't do anything. So I would go ahead and try it and see how it works out for you. Be sure to backup your registery or just make a restore point just in case .

The only real way to help those games is to set the affinity to only one core.
