Central to this protection is Game Booster, a patented technology that enables uninterrupted lightning-fast gaming while safeguarding gamers. Game Booster recognises when a game is active and automatically isolates all other apps on one or two CPU cores, ensuring other CPU cores are fully dedicated to the gaming app, enabling gameplay without lag. Dynamic Machine Learning nullifies zero-day threats while Safe Browsing flags up websites that harbour malicious code. A layered firewall also safeguards against, among other things, banking Trojans and cryptocurrency mining malware that siphons off processing power.
