iolo technologies Exceeds High Demands of Modern PC Users with System Mechanic 14

Leading PC optimization software introduces PowerSense™ for dynamic real-time power and processor optimization

LOS ANGELES – July 21, 2014 – iolo technologies, recognized globally as the leading source for innovative computer optimization solutions, today unveiled System Mechanic 14, the newest version of its flagship PC performance optimization software. System Mechanic 14 premiers new PowerSense™, a milestone technology that frees the PC user from Windows’s default “balanced power mode” and the slow app speed it often causes. PowerSense™ automatically channels system resources and optimizes power settings and processor modes in real-time to meet the needs of PC users.

A brand new feature added to System Mechanic’s real-time optimization feature LiveBoost™, PowerSense™ dynamically senses what PC users are doing and automatically switches PC power settings and processor modes in real-time to have PCs perform precisely to users’ needs based on their activity. PowerSense™ utilizes two different modes to achieve ultimate power optimization:

  • Ultra Performance Mode – Unleashes raw, fast, uncompromised power for intense and exhaustive PC activities: gaming, creating music, video editing, programming and other processor intensive activities. Ultra Performance Mode achieves this by focusing all processor cores on the session at full power and turns off all non-essential background programs.
  • Endurance Mode – Reduces battery consumption when the top priority is a long-lasting mobile session, especially for non-processor-intensive activities such as writing, reading or casual web browsing. Endurance Mode achieves this by idling down non-critical processor cores and reduces processor power consumption.

The world’s leading PC optimization software, System Mechanic® has been used by more than 45 million people to keep nearly 80 million computers in optimal condition since 1998. It is consistently ranked as the #1 best-selling software in its category within the US, Canada, UK, France and Benelux countries by NPD and similar sources.
