System Mechanic and Windows 8

An iolo Labs™ sneak preview

Windows 8

With Windows 8 due to arrive soon, iolo Labs has been hard at work analyzing the developer preview version to understand the new technology and determine how early adopters can best leverage iolo’s performance optimization technology to enhance their Windows 8 experience.

Innovation and Evolution

Microsoft’s new Windows OS appears to be the result of a great deal of technical innovation and creative effort. A completely new user interface called “Metro” breaks the mold and introduces an evolved method of interaction that allows users to more easily and intuitively access favorite apps from a variety of devices on which Windows 8 is designed to run.

According to Microsoft, the Windows 8 user experience is built around the concept of greater interactivity and efficiency. Its Metro interface logically groups cloud- and disk-based apps, tools and services (including live feed) giving the user the power to manage and access everything on the computer at a glance.

Because Windows 8 is so interactive and heavily incorporates touch and gesture based commands, it is even more dependent on fast and responsive operation than its predecessors. As iolo Labs studies the new operating system, its primary objective is to guide iolo’s engineering teams toward the exact technology and tools users will need to ensure maximum performance and stability as they migrate to Windows 8.

A Perfect Performance Fit

In fact, early iolo Labs research has found that System Mechanic’s performance optimization technology actually increases Windows 8 start up speed even more than with previous versions of Windows.

Despite being positioned as the most powerful operating system Microsoft has ever offered, iolo’s testing has also determined that Windows 8 uses less memory and system resources than Windows 7. In addition, Windows 8 appears to align much more with iolo’s high-performance focus with exciting new architectural enhancements that enable System Mechanic to make even more direct improvements to speed and reliability.

Delivering an Elevated Experience

System Mechanic directly complements the Windows 8 performance focus by automatically eliminating the root causes of traditional speed degradation. Using patented ActiveCare® technology, it intelligently and transparently maintains Windows 8 using an approach only iolo can deliver. Plus, with over 50 tools designed to allow users of all Windows operating systems to get the most out of PCs of any age, System Mechanic ensures a more enjoyable and productive digital experience, whether it be gaming, business use, online shopping and socializing, or anything in between.

As iolo Labs engineers dig deeper into the latest Microsoft operating system, stay tuned for more on how System Mechanic can maximize performance and reliability on Windows 8 computers.
