There are several optimizations that make Google Chrome run buttery smooth under Windows 10.
Open a new tab in Google Chrome and type “chrome://flags” in the URL bar.
Then search for each of these flags and make the following changes:
- GPU Rasterization: Force-enabled for all layers
- This setting will force Google Chrome to always use the GPU for rasterizing web content
- Out of Process Rasterization: Enabled
- This settings performs Ganesh raster in the GPU processs
- Zero-Copy Rasterizer: Enabled
- This setting allows the raster threads to write directly to the GPU memory. Requires hardware accelerated Native GpuMemoryBuffers
- Override software rendering list: Enabled
- This setting will force Google Chrome to to use hardware acceleration (see below)
Try it out:
- you should now be able to access the 3D Earth Google Maps feature (look for an “Earth” icon in the Google Maps Preview lower right corner);
- try some 1080p full-screen YouTube or Flash videos with and without hardware acceleration in Chrome – in my test using Intel graphics, a full-screen YouTube video used twice as much CPU without hardware acceleration than when enabling hardware acceleration in Chrome;
