ParkControl is a small .exe file that enables its users to control the CPU core parking and frequency scaling of their computers; it modifies settings for when the computer is idle by disabling certain cores that will reenable upon powerup. It is an effort to combat the performance drops created by Windows that were put in place for the sake of battery efficiency. Users of ParkControl have real-time control of their CPU core parking, which allows the decisions of the performance/battery efficiency tradeoff to be in the hands of the user with a throttle similar to frequency scaling. ParkControl is flexible, allowing the user to enable its features for some processes and disable them for other processes as desired, a key feature that is desired by many core parking utility users. It is able to return to the default setting entirely, leaving no permanent changes upon installation.
ParkControl (for Windows) will increase computer performance as desired by its user with real-time control of core CPU parking settings and can vary amongst individual power plans within the CPU. It is easy to use and still combats the aggressive performance-weakening core CPU settings put in place by Windows processors. ParkControl has a key feature desired by many users, being that it allows some core features to be enabled and some times and disabled at other times. It is similar to the throttling done by frequency scaling in that it provides a "drag to increase or decrease" style of setting. No payment or licensure is required and changes made by ParkControl are entirely reversible.
It is supported by most modern computer systems, is a small system that has minimal interferance with other processes, and is designed specifically to combat the inefficiency of low-performance, battery-saving default settings.
