Modern day games are resource hungry giants which require every ounce of your computer’s resources. However, the fact is that most of the casual gamers have systems which are just not optimised for gaming. Windows itself comes with a bunch of additional services which are not essential for the functioning of the system, but are present to provide additional functionalities. On top of that users have other services such as antivirus software, unnecessary driver agents etc running in the background. These processes use up a fair amount of system memory as well as some computing power.
Game Booster is a freeware from IOBits which attempts to boost your games performance by maximising the amount of system resource available to games. Game Booster allows you to optimise your system for gaming with the click of a button. When you enable gaming mode it disables all unnecessary services and processes and cleans your RAM. It also gives the user the option to close user applications running in the background.
Game Booster really works. The difference won’t be dramatic (but significant enough to be noticeable in most cases) and results may vary. Depending how optimised your system is you can get 2-5 FPS boost. Game Booster itself is extremely light-weight (consumes less than 2MB of RAM) and sits quietly in the system tray while you enjoy your gaming session. After you are done with gaming simply click on “Back to Normal Mode” and Game Booster will revert all changes. Since all the changes are temporary, it is safe to use. In fact this approach is better than permanently disabling services like Themes via services.msc. Game Booster is a highly recommended software and anyone looking to get a frame rate boost without spending additional amount on hardware should give it a try.
