Windows 7 Core Parking:
Why Do It.
Making this change will reduce the ammount of time you crash, lag, stall, freeze, black out, etc. as this change will stop your computer from going into a power saving mode that interupts the processing of information required by new games like Planetside 2.
A lot of graphics processing for Planetside2 is done in the CPU rather then the GPU of your video card. Your video card is not really used for everything unless you are running in ULTRA graphics mode, which currently cannot be set from within the game. ULTRA Mode for Planetside2 is set inside the user.ini file and is covered in a seperate article.
What is Core Parking?
In laymen terms "Core Parking" is a "at rest" or "sleep state" of a CPU core. Newer computers now have 4, 6, or 8 cores. Core Parking, turns off or disables NOT used logical CPU cores to save electrical power to the computer.
It makes your power consumption, your electrical bill, less expensive at the cost of overall performance of your system. A very green thing to do.
Core parking is enabled by default on all win 7 computers and are tied into the power settings or profiles of most computers.
Turning off and disabling core parking on most CPU s, should provide substantial improvement in performance,
AMD computers will have a higher performance increase because AMD pairs its cores together when working on one particular task, making a specific task accomplish faster.
Intel computers will also see a performance gain, depending on the cpu model.
There are three ways of ensuring that your cores do not fall asleep when you most need them while you are playing a game.
How To Modify Windows 7:
To modify Windows 7 you need to go into the software registry. You will NOT delete any files or add any files to to this.
There is only one parameter in one file that you do modify. You simply have to go to that file, click on it, modify it, and save it.
It took me more time to write this article than it will take you to make the change to that file, Its that easy.
Step by Step Instruction:
NOTE: You can do this with this website window and the registry window opened at the same time.
Thats all there is to it - Most people only use one power setting, the default on that comes with their computer. If you are an advanced user, and are using more then one power setting for what ever reason, you will have to do it for each power setting profile that you have configured.
