In this tutorial, I will explain how to disable GPU preemption on Windows 11. QuickBoost is a free and open software that allows you to tweak various aspects of your PC in order to boost the overall performance. And one of the features that it supports is disabling GPU preemption. In just 1 click, you can do that and enable the GPU preemption later if you want to in the same way.
Besides that, it has other tools and utilities that you will like such as disabling Microsoft data collection and disabling scheduled tasks & bloatware.
GPUs can be pre-emptied and switch their context to a new program while executing one already. This is usually required in multi processing setup. But if you want to turn off this behavior so that GPU can concentrate on only 1 task then you can do that. Turning this off can maximize the GPU utilization and it can execute single task more efficiently. And the software, QuickBoost here lets you do that in just a single click.

QuickBoost is available to download from its GitHub releases. It runs in portable mode and you just have to launch it.
