Razer Cortex 3.3

Razer Cortex Editor's Review

Game Booster is a one-click-to-go program that temporarily shuts down non-critical system processes in order to improve the performance of the computer for a smoother game-play experience. In other words, it will close other programs that are currently running (if you choose to), shutdown non-critical services, turn off background processes, intensify processor performance and free up some memory, all these being reversible. It will also keep all the features of your Windows OS ready for the moment when you want to get back to normal mode.

The interface is very minimalistic, it has a list of processes that can be shut down during gaming and check boxes that allow users to select which one will be shut down. To test the application stability, I disabled all the listed processes and everything went safe. Beside, the app was able to regain around 350 megabytes of memory which on lower-end systems might create noticeable differences while gaming. After playing a game for a while, when I switched back to normal, the app was able to restart all the services and everything was running as it did before Game Booster was enabled.

What I found very interesting in this program is the possibility to defragment the directories of a game of you choice, in order to start and run more quickly. You can choose from a list of the detected games or you can manually choose a folder of your choice.

Pluses:Game defragmenter;

Drawbacks / flaws: -

In conclusion: A great piece of software that really improves game-play experience, especially on lower-end systems.
