Memory 32 GB
Video Card(s) RTX 3080
Display(s) 30" 2560x1600 + 19" 1280x1024
Software Windows 10 64-bit
Updated for Windows 10 21H1 Update

- Install without Internet, so you can create an offline user
- name the user "TPU" (the user will be deleted at the end of the scripts and you're using "Administrator")
- Install VGA driver, from USB, still without network, so Windows Update won't install a graphics driver automatically. Protip: use NVCleanstall
- Run Windows Update, update everything
- No need to update Windows Store apps
- Disable Defender "Tamper protection" via Settings App
- Run the below in admin-rights cmd shell.

Code:
rem Download and install Firefox silently (copy and paste into cmd, without leading rem)
rem PowerShell "(New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-latest&os=win64&lang=en-US','%TEMP%\ff.exe'); Start-Process %TEMP%\ff.exe /s -NoNewWindow -Wait; Remove-Item %TEMP%\ff.exe"

Read the comments and pick what you want personally, could be useful for some people

Why disable Defender?
Useless junk, also creates background activity that messes with scores

Is there a specific reason for UAC you dont just change EnableLUA to 0?
From what I understand mine still runs IE in low integrity mode while yours completely turns off UAC. Yours is probably better, I'll evaluate on next rebench and update

I don't know if it's intended to do this or I'm having a separate issue but after trying these tweaks my windows defender is completely disabled and portions of my Malwarebytes are not working properly namely the real time protection elements.

I don't know if this is just a coincidence , since I don't know that it directly relates to these tweaks , but I'm just going to restore from an image I have for just such a situation.

Why don't you create an app that can allow the user to just click and bench, then click and be back to normal?

Thanks for sharing thou :respect:

I bench pretty good and for the last couple years stopped bothering with tweaks. They don't seem to affect benches anymore. Some of the tweaks you linked are useful in general though so thanks for that.

These tweaks are for my VGA test system setup, not some kind of world record benching.

I just put them here so other people can find and use them, no plans to make any kind of app.

I think they can all be undone with commands or through gui.

Don't just blindly run the script. Look at it, pick the items you want, leave out the other ones.

The Regedit change W1zzard is using above works for me. Startisback++ used to be able to prevent Cortana background process from running now it's just "perform shell liposuction."
