10 hacks to improve your laptop’s gaming performance

Close background applications: To almost instantaneously see a surge of a performance boost, you can close all other apps running in the background. You can close all RAM-consuming apps to free up memory so that your game can run smoothly and lag-free.

Update graphics driver: Most of us tend to forget about updating the GPU drivers after installing them once. Manufacturers usually keep bringing out new drivers for the GPU and updating it will optimise the performance of your GPU for many games. Oftentimes, updating the drivers can drastically improve gaming performance.

Scan for malware: If you are witnessing a sudden drop in gaming performance out of nowhere then chances are your system is infected with viruses and malware. You can run a system-wide scan to detect it. Deleting malicious files and programs will improve gaming performance with immediate effect.

Manage heat properly: Gaming is pretty intensive on the processor and GPU so make sure that these components don’t overheat as in such a case, the performance will drop. And you will witness many stutters and lags. Make sure the fan vents aren’t blocked by anything and the fans are running properly to manage the heat.

Adjust graphic settings: Most games offer multiple graphics settings to play. To improve your gaming performance, you can lower the resolution, and turn off shadows and other graphical effects to make it less intensive for the GPU and CPU. This will certainly give you a good gaming experience. It will make your game run smoothly at the cost of slightly inferior graphical fidelity.

Enable game mode: All laptops have special modes dedicatedly to gaming. Regardless of Windows 10 or 11, you will find a Game mode. If you have a dedicated gaming laptop then it might also have specified software to boost gaming performance when Game mode is turned on. It might also have other software features to extract more performance.

Upgrade GPU: Even after utilising all the above hacks, if you aren’t seeing any incremental gaming performance boost then you should consider upgrading hardware. To be more specific, the graphics card. If your system allows for it then upgrading to a better graphics card will make a night and day difference.

Use a gaming mouse: Another way to improve gaming performance is to buy a gaming mouse . These are specifically designed for faster response and ergonomically designed for longer sessions of comfortable gaming. These mouse are made for a faster response without little to no lag between your input and the action.

Clean up your system: Oftentimes, dust gradually gets accumulated on the internal hardware of your system. This can cause reduced performance. To overcome this, you can clean the inside of your PC regularly using a can of compressed air. Just make sure the PC is turned off when you are doing it.

Use a gaming headset: Another way to improve gaming performance is simply getting a gaming headset . Audio feedback and queues are a huge part of any game. It helps not just in creating an immersive experience but also helps a gamer to better react to the game. A lag-free wired headset can help you make sure you are getting a clear sound to optimize your performance while playing.
