Nitro Update makes Avast light weight, low on system impact and improves system performance on Windows 10. Avast has released Nitro Update -a major one – to its flagship products and is available for download all Avast users such as Free antivirus, Antivirus, Internet Security and Premium.
Avast has streamlined their product by removing unnecessary hardware virtualization (NG) -which always runs in the background and consumes more system resources-and replaced with new CyberCapture technology that sends unrecognized and unique files to cloud for analysis, and re-sends the result, i.e either ‘dangerous’ or ‘safe’ to client after further checks.

The company has also removed the unused Remote Assistance feature.
Monthly program updates: Avast from on will deliver new features and product updates on a monthly basis. These are set to automatic and silent, but can be configured via Settings.
Avast claims Nitro update delivers 11% faster boot time than the previous version.
According to research done by AV-Comparatives, Avast has half much system impact as Windows Defender in Windows 10.
