Is it possible to make application run faster by raise resource usage (CPU, RAM) in Windows?

Hi all,

I had the application is running slowly in my Windows (Exporting graphic model or .etc)
Is any method to make it run faster by adjusting the resource usage (CPU, RAM) in Windows?

As I know that we can set the priority for the application in Task Manager. Will it help if I changed the priority to "High"?

There are many variables that will make an application run better and faster and setting a higher priority in the task manager would be the last one. You can take this test yourself now and little difference you will notice or none at all. This response from SuperUser.com explains how this configuration works:

For your application to run faster and in fact you feel a difference, the solution would be to invest in hardware: faster CPUs with more cores, storage with faster read and write rates, faster RAM.

Hi,
May I ask what application runs slowly in your Windows? Are all the applications slow or just one of them? Setting the priority for the application in the task manager does work. You can set the application that you want to speed up to High priority or Above normal, or set the application you don't really need to Low or Below normal. And here are some other methods you can try:
1. You can set affinity for application in the task manager. Set more CPU processors for the application that you want to speed up and fewer for the application that you don't really need.
2. Or you can try this: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/optimize-windows-for-better-performance-6c70719b-d7b7-2ab3-d744-c88113c7e83a.
Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.

Best Regards,
Ansley Huang
