LAS VEGAS – (BUSINESS WIRE) – CES– Today, McAfee announced McAfee Gamer Security, designed from scratch to improve game performance, while helping to keep players safe.

Key features and benefits include:
Game mode: Automatically increases and optimizes resources such as CPU, GPU, RAM to provide a high performance gaming experience. Game Mode also allows users to suppress notifications and pop-ups to limit interruptions during the gaming experience.
Historical system monitoring: offers system consumption trends for previous gaming sessions, providing customers with valuable data to further optimize their systems for the best possible gaming experience.
Player-centered interface: the dashboard, created to be visible and familiar to players, updates the status of your system, including system monitoring and modification options to prioritize performance.
Minimum consumption of security resources: with a new product architecture and a smaller footprint of resources, players will enjoy a light security protection at all times. Security features can even stop during game mode to get higher performance gains
