announced earlier Intel The Application Performance Optimization (APO) feature will be specific to some 14th generation Raptor Lake Refresh processors.
But the thirteenth generation (Raptor Lake) and twelfth generation (Alder Lake) processors will not support this feature. The (APO) feature improves the processor’s performance towards specific applications and games so that you get the optimal experience from your processor. It is similar to Intel’s Dynamic Tuning Technology (DTT) that works to give a specific application the best possible allocation of computer resources.
Until now, there are only two games for which Intel has released special improvements through the (APO) feature, which is Rainbow Six: Siege, which received a performance improvement of up to 13%, and Metro Exodus by up to 16%.
The (APO) feature is only supported on the Core i9-14900K and Core i9-14900KF processor, and later support will be towards another lineup of 14th generation processors.
Bitsum, which previously developed the popular Process Lasso program, today offers CoreDirector, which is capable of completely controlling the 14th, 13th, and 12th generation central processor cores. This software may be an alternative to Intel’s APO feature, giving gamers and general users the opportunity to determine CPU core performance.

With CoreDirector, users can manually control applications and games running on the E and P cores. CoreDirector has three basic execution methods: Efficiency Mode OFF, CPU Affinities, and CPU sets.
The Efficiency Mode OFF option is a simple implementation method that prevents processor threads from being automatically scheduled to E cores but still allows the use of E cores if the application specifically needs E cores or needs more threads than P cores can provide.
The second and third options are very similar to what Process Lasso provides. The CPU Affinities option will restrict all threads to P cores, except in cases where the application intentionally requests them to run on E cores. The CPU sets option is a less stringent implementation method and leaves many decisions to the operating system.
Bitsum certainly didn’t design CoreDirector to replace Process Lasso, but it’s clearly intended to be a simpler, more intuitive app for novice users. Bitsum specifically recommends using the more powerful Process Lasso program to control the E core, but also mentions that it has made CoreDirector Available to everyone.
