System Mechanic 14 Wins PC Magazine's Editors' Choice Award

Prestigious technology publication selects System Mechanic as world's best PC performance software

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- System Mechanic® 14 has received PC Magazine's 2014 Editors' Choice Award, marking the fifth time the magazine has given the best-selling PC performance software its highest honor. A key factor in the decision was PC Magazine Labs' discovery through critical testing of drastically improved system performance in test PCs—outscoring leading competitors. The review noted, "iolo's utility comes packed with features that make it worth the price of admission."

PC Magazine Labs singled out PowerSense™, one of the new features introduced in version 14, for its ability to dynamically sense PC activity and switch power settings and processor modes to maximize system resources in real time, especially for heavy-demand processes such as PC gaming. PC Magazine's staff specifically noted that System Mechanic significantly improved responsiveness and performance in iTunes and Steam products.

PC Mag review

The engineers at iolo recognize that even new computers need optimization to get beyond factory default or "average" mode. System Mechanic's award-winning ActiveCare® features have long been the leader in automated PC maintenance. Now, only the automatic, real-time response tuning in System Mechanic's LiveBoost™ Technology pushes beyond PC repair and stabilization—releasing more RAM when you need it and, with custom processor and power profiling, unleashing the best set of system resources to suit the specific apps you're running.

"With version 14, System Mechanic has broken through into a new dimension of PC responsiveness to deliver a user experience well beyond anyone's current expectations," said Dennis Bottrell, iolo Vice-President of Engineering. "The award confirms that we've accomplished this."

The world's leading PC optimization software, System Mechanic has been used by more than 45 million people to keep nearly 80 million computers in optimal condition since 1998. It is consistently ranked as the #1 best-selling software in its category within the US, Canada, UK, France and Benelux countries by NPD and similar sources.

As technology changes, system requirements continue to escalate. Whether users do a great deal of high-end gaming, office multitasking, multimedia editing and content creation, high-definition streaming or 3D graphic design, new programs bring new potential—and greater demand on your computer.

System Mechanic 14 introduces a multitude of innovative technologies, including PowerSense, which utilizes two different modes to achieve ultimate power optimization:

  • Ultra Performance Mode – Unleashes raw, fast, uncompromised power for intense and exhaustive PC activities such as gaming, music and video editing, programming and other processor intensive activities. Ultra Performance Mode achieves this by focusing all processor cores on the session at full power and turns off all non-essential background programs.
  • Endurance Mode – Reduces battery consumption when the top priority is a long-lasting mobile session, especially for non-processor-intensive activities such as writing, reading or casual web browsing. Endurance Mode achieves this by idling down non-critical processor cores, reducing processor power consumption.

System Mechanic 14 is automatically available at no charge to all existing users with an active iolo service plan, which provides all product updates and major version upgrades.
