I didn't know about it so had to give that a look.

Game Mode itself was already activated, I guess just waiting for something to
automatically be detected as compatible with it.

Found that running POV-Ray and using Windows key + G shows the "Game Bar", so
going into Settings (gear icon) there's a couple checkboxes for recognizing the
program.

A test of one hour for series of animation frames I had done previously was only
1 minute less than before.

I couldn't be sure of what the CPU activity list, via Task Manager, was showing
me. Maybe there was more focus on POV-Ray, or rather less on all else, but I
wasn't able to discern that for sure.
