My current custom-built system:avastalicious said:Allright, am I the only one that sees Bitdefender light as a feather on the resource matter? Like I'm not trolling you guys but i just can't feel it running and I'm amazed by the ammount of people having problems with it.
My main desktop specs:
AMD Athlon II x2 250 @ 3 GHz
4GB DDR3 Dual Channel RAM
SAMSUNG SSD 830 Series 64GB
Windows 8 Pro
I tried Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 and Avast! 7 Antivirus recently and the performance was nowhere near as with Bitdefender. I even had 2-3 seconds delays in opening any program with Avast and the system felt like I had a single core with Kaspersky.
Maybe Bitdefender is optimized for AMD or something? I don't get it.
Oh and I also run at 3GHz all the time, no power saving mode is active. I even disabled all power savings in BIOS as well and undervolted the chip with a few millivolts. The result is the CPU staying between 20-30 degrees celsius at all times and the power usage being really low, also ensuring max performance in any usage scenario.
ASUS M4A88T- M Motherboard
8GB DDR3 Dual Channel Corsair RAM
AMD Phenom II X6 1045T Processor 2.70GHz overclocked to 3.40GHz
Windows Experience Index : 4.9
BitDefender not optimized for AMD.
It wasn't just an increase of CPU and RAM resources that was the problem on my system, it was the system lag and response time when I clicked on anything that was the main problem. BitDefender made everything much slower including system boot time. Avast used more resources but I didn't have any system lag or slow boot process. My system was much faster running Avast. Kaspersky ran even worse on my system then BitDefender did.
Tried BitDefender on my other systems with different specifications and it made all of them much slower in general.
So I don't know what to tell you, software can run much different on different systems, maybe you are one of the lucky ones.
