GameMode is a daemon/lib combo for Linux that allows games to request a
set of optimisations be temporarily applied to the host OS.
GameMode was designed primarily as a stop-gap solution to problems with
the Intel and AMD CPU powersave or ondemand governors, but is now host
to a range of optimisation features and configurations.
Currently GameMode includes support for optimisations including:
- CPU governor
- I/O priority
- Process niceness
- Kernel scheduler (SCHED_ISO)
- Screensaver inhibiting
- GPU performance mode (NVIDIA and AMD), GPU overclocking (NVIDIA)
- Custom scripts
