This guide will guide you through the best NVIDIA settings/NVIDIA control panel optimizations, that would surely make your PC/Laptop at least 2 times faster as compared to default settings. There are total 6 steps which would take you about hardly 15 minutes to apply and then you can work/play at a faster speed for an eternal time, just kidding, you may need to check for new settings when new drivers are rolled out (2-3 months) or a major windows update is installed but if you have already applied these settings, you would need to only alter 2-3 settings which cost about 2 minutes.
