Have you been hearing your friends say that Unparking their CPU’s cores allowed them to enjoy a better gaming performance? So has that made you want to try out Unparking? However, the question is- what is Unparking CPU? And will it improve your gaming performance? I will tell you all about it below.
But first, to understand Unparking, you need to understand:
Parking is a state where the CPU is in a low-power state. This is because the cores get automatically disabled when it’s idle to preserve power. Note that Parking is supported by a lot of modern operating systems and processors.
Unparking does the opposite of Parking. It ends up modifying the system’s power management settings to ensure that the OS never Park scores. Instead, it just steps-up and steps-down the cores as per the CPU load. Due to this, there is an increase in the overall system responsiveness. Now, this could lead to a rise in in-game FPS. But there is a downside to CPU Unparking. Know that the system consumes way too much power when the CPUs cores are Unparked.
If you want to improve your game’s performance, you will have to Unpark your CPU cores. Here’s how you can do it.
First of all, note that there are two ways you will be able to Unparkthe cores of your CPU. I will tell you both of those here. The first one is:
First, you need to download an Unparking tool before proceeding to extract it. After this, you need to run the extracted file and then click positively on the button to check status. Now, it will take some minutes to display the results, so you need to stay patient. When the process gets completed, you will see just how many Parked cores you have.
Now you need to Unpark the Parked cores. This is an automatic process, so all you need to do is click right on the button that says Unpark All.
In the end, you will have to reboot your system. After the machine gets booted up, you need to run the Unparking Tool and know your cores’ status. Note that the results should show that there are zero Parkedcores.
The second method is a manual process, and so it is a little complicated. But you should know this as well since the automatic button might not always work. So here are the steps to Unpark your CPU cores manually:
You will have to download the Unparking tool before extracting it. After this, run the Unparking file and click the button saying ‘Check Status’ or anything similar.
You need to be a little patient and wait for a little since this could take up to 5 minutes. But once it is complete, you will be able to view the cores’ entire Parking status.
So if you find that there are Parked cores in your report, you need to Unpark them. For this, you need to use REGEDIT. To find it, press the Windows Key with R.
Now, type in REGEDIT in double-quotes before hitting enter. This should bring you in front of the Registry Editor.
After this, you need to go to the “Edit” tab, click on it, and then click on the “Find” option from the drop-down menu as well. Now, you need to copy-paste this string of numbers and letters there-0cc5b647-c1df-4637-891a-dec35c318583. Once you are done, check the option which says “Match-whole-string-only” box.
In the end, click on the “Find Next” option. This will take you to a page where you will have to carry out changes in two categories- the”ValueMin” and “ValueMax’ ones. But you won’t be able to see the boxes at first. For that, you need to double-click on the two options.
Now, you need to change the number in the given box to “0”. You need to do the same for both of the options. After you have done it, click on Ok.
In the last step, you will have to restart your PC. After booting your machine, make sure that your cores are Unparked now. To ensure this, use the same Unparking tool and check the status of your cores. The result should show zero Parked cores.
Unparking your CPU cores will indeed lead to better gaming performance. So if you want to enjoy a better gaming experience, choose any of the above two methods to Unpark your Parked cores.
