Bitsum developed Park Control because core parking settings are hidden in Windows, but can make such a large difference on performance, particularly when there are bursting CPU bound loads (the most common type).
In such an event, those issues would be seen regardless of these tweaks by simply placing a sustained high load on the CPU. Getting to business, you can change these settings yourself via Window’s
You must run this utility with elevated rights, so be sure to open an elevated console window by right-clicking ‘cmd.exe’ and selecting ‘Run as Administrator’ (now in the ‘More’ submenu in the latest Windows 10 update).
Further, we provide full technical details and information on how to make these tweaks without our software.
However, we find that Windows is often over-aggressive in its core parking, resulting in excess latency as cores are unparked to accommodate bursting loads (the most common type of CPU load).
In our tests, we’ve found AMD processors benefit most from disabling core parking.
Disabled cores are re-enabled as the CPU load increases once again.
This technology is very similar to frequency scaling, in that it seeks to throttle the CPU when idle.
