Check this out folks -- Cacheman was literally THE FIRST Windows performance optimization software. Ever! Millions of Windows power-users have been utilizing it since 1997 to keep their PCs running as smooth as silk. How's that for pedigree!
We've all been there. The more applications you install and run, the slower and buggier your computer gets over time. Mildly annoying at first, this gradual degeneration can become a serious time suck and eventually even require the purchase of a new computer. Not a fun situation!
Many of these performance issues are the result of inefficient, confused memory and process management by Windows. And this is where Cacheman steps in. Cacheman is specifically designed to enhance computer speed and stability by optimizing caches, managing memory, and fine-tuning system settings.
And by golly, it works! Just a few minutes with Cacheman and you'll experience noticeable performance increases across the board!
For power-users and experienced tweakers, Cacheman offers an unprecedented level of control over memory and system functions. Got a memory leak? Use Cacheman to minimize the damage by specifying a maximum usage for the leaking application. Want to allocate more CPU juice to some applications and less to others? Use Cacheman to set permanent process priorities so that your important applications will always have enough resources for optimum performance!
And for those wishing to continually monitor their system processes, Cacheman offers up to five fully-customizable system tray icons that provide relevant information at a glance. Besides being able to specify which information is displayed, you can change the type (graph, block, number) and even the colors!
Cacheman can now dynamically regulate the priority of background processes (Anti-Virus programs, system services, Windows-Update installations) if they take too much CPU processing power. This means that the front-running application, whatever it might be, will get a significant boost. Cacheman will also ensure that applications leaking computer memory will not take away resources from the front-running application. Dynamic priority is already pre-configured and works from the start!
Cacheman is clearly ideal for the power-user, but the developers haven't forgotten about those of us who aren't quite as technically-inclined. Cacheman offers novices a fantastically-simple One-Click Auto-Optimize tool that examines your system and automatically applies the best settings and system tweaks in order to improve performance and stability. You can even optimize your computer for specific tasks by selecting individual Auto-Optimization profiles like Gaming Computer or Notebook | Netbook.
And for your peace of mind, Cacheman features an advanced backup feature that allows you to revert any of your tweaks with a single click!
Why waste another second on system lag? Give Cacheman a try today and experience that new-computer feeling all over again!
Version Alert! Check out what's new in Cacheman 10.10:
- Improved Max Performance and Best of All Worlds profiles for AMD Ryzen and Intel Core CPUs.
- New processor support: AMD Ryzen 7 1700, 1700X, 1800X and Ryzen 5 1400, 1500X, 1600, 1600X. AMD Ryzen 7 users should read the note at the end of this list.
- Improved Server profile.
- Added 4 more optional Tray Icons: A maximum of 9 Tray Icons is now possible, so free RAM and CPU usage of up to 8 cores can be displayed at the same time.
- Windows Creators Update support.
- Sticky Core affinity feature: tie processes to specific CPU Cores; Affinity will survive a reboot or program restart.
- Many minor changes.
Note to AMD Ryzen 7 users:
The AMD Ryzen CPU consists of 16 CPU cores - 8 physical and 8 virtual (emulated) cores. The physical cores are placed on the CPU die in two groups of 4 cores each, the so called CCX (CPU Complex). The two groups are interconnected with with a 256-bit wide bi-directional crossbar. The speed of the crossbar is linked to the speed of your system memory (RAM). Within a CCX group CPU cores can communicate very quickly with each other. Communication between cores that sit on two separate CCX groups is significantly slower (by the factor of 2 and more).
Windows 10 appears to not be aware that the Ryzen processor consists of two individual CPU core groups. Switching program threads from one CCX group to another can cause performance degradation on an otherwise very fast processor. During our tests in the Outertech lab we have discovered that tying some Windows applications to the first CCX group (4 physical + 4 virtual cores) can increase the performance by a significant factor, as thread switching between two CCX groups is avoided. This will work well only with applications that do not make full use of all 16 CPU cores, particularly computer games.
Since we are expecting a fix from Microsoft on this issue we have decided against an automatic Cacheman optimization at this time. Users can manually try this optimization. Here is an example for the game Witcher 3:
- 1. Start the computer game you want to optimize, in this example Witcher 3
- 2. Switch to desktop (alt + tab hotkey)
- 3. Launch Cacheman
- 4. Go to the Sticky Core Affinity tab
- 5. In the process list select witcher3.exe
- 6. Click on the Presets button and select Core 1-8
- 7. The Core Affinity will change from default to 1111111100000000
- 8. Restart Witcher 3
To optimize other games just look for the correct process name in the core affinity list.
Cacheman will remember this tweak and apply it automatically each time you start the game.
We will continue to monitor this issue, and if Microsoft doesn't fix it with an update, we will release a new Cacheman version with automatic Core Affinity optimization.
