    "Its a low memory use and small program that works"

    December 31, 2009   |   By magysbill

    Version: Intel Application Accelerator 2.3

    Pros

    Had IAA 2.2 and no difference in programs. With 2.3 Medal of Honor, COD, Laser Age and Afterdark games load faster and play smoother.MS Word,Encarta, AOL, Spybot all load faster

    Cons

    none so far

    Summary

    Note-I still have a dinosaur computer running Win ME,640 megs memory with an ATI card w/ 256 megs of memory. I dont know if there would be a boost to people who dont live in the dark ages but for economically challenged people, it works. MaxMem helps squeaze more memory for use and TitleBarClock tells me the free memory(both on CNET)

    "It seems to work."

    December 10, 2009   |   By imwolfies

    Version: Intel Application Accelerator 2.3

    Pros

    It did find updates quickly.

    Cons

    It wants to update software programs that I no longer use or want to update with no way to disable the update search for that particular software product.

    Summary

    It seems to work like it's suppose to. It lacks an option to "uncheck" or deselect a program from searching for an update. Not all new versions of software are good or compatable with my current operating system or hardware.

    Most things improve over time and therefore feedback is important to any product. This helped me updated what I wanted to and what was needed. I will continue to use it until I encounter problems.

    "Only way to enable udma on my Thinkpad T30 (ver 2.2.2)"

    November 30, 2009   |   By tbird635

    Version: Intel Application Accelerator 2.3

    Pros

    The Hitachi hdd in my T30 Thinkpad was slow, only working in PIO mode w/xp drivers. I downloaded the Process Explorer and found hardware interrupts using lots of cpu cycles. After installing IAA, problem resolved, now in UDMA mode5. Works great

    Cons

    No cons other than no longer updated past 2.2.2 for mobile chips, ver 2.3 does not work on laptops. 2.2.2 is still available

    Summary

    Intel Application Accelerator was the only way I could get the laptop to see the Hitachi drive in UDMA mode 5 and not PIO mode. Using the XP and IBM drivers on this laptop, it was stuck with PIO only. This led to cpu usage topping 50% on app startup. After installing the IAA< the drive went to UDMA mode 5 and cpu usage went to 5%. Night and day difference. Battery life is a lot better too.

    "Great for PC's with Lowspeed processors and board video"

    October 16, 2009   |   By Stumpy_Joe

    Version: Intel Application Accelerator 2.3

    Pros

    Notifies the user if installation is incompatible to install via information window during installalation,a plus for the novice

    Cons

    There are no Cons-If It applies to your system It Installs-If incompatible It wont

    Summary

    Most Intel applications/updates prevent improper install,this is a feature of most quality software applications/updates etc..Should be the industry standard in All software applications/updates ,Unfortunately Such is NOT yet the case.If your a Novice or a Pro,It's a problem free application with easy install.The typical purpose of this particular type application is to increase overal applications performance/response and speed (lower speed intel processors and on onboard video chipsets)though chiefly aimed at visual processes-Many older and lower speed PC's will benifit

    "Intel's Chipset update did not work"

    September 24, 2009   |   By dickstub

    Version: Intel Application Accelerator 2.3

    Pros

    It worked well and scanned quickly.

    Cons

    It found an upgrade that didn't work from Intel, plus it found other upgrades where the vendor providing it wanted a fee before upgrading.

    Summary

    I installed & uninstalled this product as it didn't meet my expectations. I am going to try it again on another PC.
