    It works by defragmenting game directories, temporarily shutting down background processes, cleaning RAM, and intensifying processor performance. That means you can keep all the features of operating systems ready for when you need them, but turn them off when you are ready to get down to serious business – gaming.

    Must say - I thought this was going to be just another "RAM Optimizer" that just steals memory from other applications then releases it, but I was impressed to see this actually do something positively beneficiary to the system - stop un-needed components and defrag core game files.

    Great Find :)

    What I like to do is to right click on all my game shortcuts then go to properties, compatibility tab. I set them to disable desktop composition, which essentially stops the Aero interface while the game is opened and running. This adds a little more available room in the graphics card memory and perhaps speeds things up slightly.

    I use something similar to the above called AMD Fusion:

    [​IMG]

    It doesn't look much but using the 'Game' profile I can set the CPU to run at 3.4GHz (whilst still idling at 800MHz in those quiet moments, which is something I can't do if I overclock via the bios), all the usual background apps are shutdown and the graphics card can be overclocked (GPU only) too. The only kicker is that it's AMD friendly and won't work on Intel systems..

    Thanks.

    The idea of Game Booster is that it temporarily (as opposed to tweaking something permanently) closes processes and services (whose list you can edit). When you need those processes back, you can restart them with a single click.

    As for its effectiveness, when I was testing it would give me 3 extra FPS after shutting down 26 processes (going from 74 to 48).

    So this app is not at all a revolution but yet another tweaking method, to free up resources only for a needed period of time.





    Good tip. I also use this one.





    Good tip as well. Petty that not compatible with Intel. When the summer heat is over, I'll try ASUS AI Booster along with the voltage tweak in my video card. Expect 5 extra FPS with the moderate overclocking my Zalman can handle.

    There was a modded version for Intel CPUs, i've used at the start of this year...

    it's also worth stating that the worse your PC is the more potential for gain you'll get using this app, as once ya get past a point the results drop to 3-5% increase if any at all.

    There was a tweak to make Fusion work with Intel, tried it myself but long since stopped using it... once you've got a i7 inside you have little need for such apps.

    The program which is included in this tread does a lot of CPU/RAM usage optimization for you automatically, by stopping un-needed processes, services and visual effects. The program itself has a minimal (literally only a few MB) impact on system performance. For most people the difference is insignificant, but for people running entry-level gaming PC's, it can make a considerable difference. On my old PC, I was able to achieve 10-15 FPS increases in many games.
