Weekly review and outlook: From system optimizers and fast benchmarks


The focus of the week was the Sunday survey on ComputerBase, which dealt with system tools such as CCleaner or TuneUp, more precisely with the question of how ComputerBase readers feel about the programs. One reason for this is the partly new “Performance Optimizer” functions, which promise more performance.

According to the survey, 21 percent of the slightly more than 5,000 participants in the ComputerBase community use appropriate tools, but only 10 percent consider them really useful. On the other hand, 50 percent believe that these are neither particularly useful nor problematic, while 41 percent believe that the tools are rather problematic. Accordingly, 40 percent of the participants in the survey also state that they have had problems after using such a tool, 60 percent report no problems at all.

Do you use tools such as CCleaner or AVG PC TuneUp?

  • Yes, I use one or more system optimizers.
  • No, I trust the on-board resources of the operating system.
  • Abstain (Show result)

F1 22 with very high FPS and good raytracing

The technology test for the new Formula 1 racing game F1 22 (test) made it into second place among the articles, which, in addition to the usual graphics card benchmarks, also offers an analysis of the visual benefits and performance costs of ray tracing as well as an assessment of the upscaling techniques AMD FSR 1.0 and Nvidia DLSS 2.4. The very high frame rates that F1 22 achieves on most graphics cards are striking in the test. This is also the reason why ray tracing can be used sensibly on many 3D accelerators, despite the sometimes considerable loss of performance.

Windows 10 will be updated again

Even if Microsoft invests the majority of its own resources in Windows 11, Windows 10 will also receive an update again. However, Windows 10 22H2 will receive fewer new features, instead the focus will be on optimizations, error corrections and security updates. In the meantime, Microsoft has also published the official release notes for Windows 10 Build 19044.1806, which already contains the first packages for Windows 10 22H2, on the Windows Blog.

The website Deskmodder has already translated the changes into German.
