AMD Fusion Gaming Utility Version 1.0 Released

AMD today launched the first official version of its Fusion Gaming Utility. Working on AMD systems only, the Fusion Gaming Utility turns off various Windows processes and thus gains some additional performance when needed. AMD Fusion works with both Microsoft Windows XP 32/64-bit and Windows Vista 32/64-bit.

these are for everyone else that just want to play games and not know much about computer hardware/software.

The expert profile actually changes your CPU and GPU speed so if your already overclocked it probably reduces the speed to +10% of default and you will lose points. It might be useful for the process and hard drive tweaks but to be honest most overclockers have already fully tweaked their systems for games.
