Legion Y720 - Uninstall Dolby Atmos software

2017-09-12, 11:03 AM

Hi,

 

I have a Lenovo Legion y720 laptop. On startup I can see that I have have one program called Dolby Atmos. It's also present in the lower right of the screen. Can I saftely uninstall that program or does it contain any form of drivers? I don't want it to slow down my computer and I really don't care about any more sound tuning apps like equalizers and stuff. Windows sound settings is fine for me.

 

Thanks!

Hello fermoz!

Check in Task Manager if it has any major impact on CPU (doubt it has) but check it to be sure. If it doesn't, then you don't need to uninstall the software. It's a small app thinking about your laptop (I7-7700HQ/ I5-7300HQ). So it doesn't affect your performance in any games.

Cheers!

First, that app has minimal impact on CPU/performance. (No need to uninstall)

 

Second, why would you want to uninstall an app that was specifically designed to give a superior audio experience on this laptop. Dolby Atmos is probably the best equalizer around combined with the actual hardware.

 

(There is also Equalizer APO which is free and highly customizable)
