AMD is the fierce competitor of Intel in the area of chip and processor production. Since your local CPU is shared among other programs, the video performance of games and high quality programs might be impaired. For AMD CPUs, there is AMD Dual-Core Optimizer.
AMD Dual-Core Optimizer is designed specifically for AMD CPUs in order to help improve their performance. This optimization is for programs that have a very low frame rate and video display. Program that usually require an extensive video frame are video games.
AMD Dual-Core Optimizer will detect the processes that can be stopped so as to give full access to the game you are trying to run. Best of all, the software does not require any special configuration to do its job. This is a good tool to have!
