Same, hows about BT gives it and some similar "game fps boosting" software a run down to see if its worthwhile? I cant imagine it making much of a difference tbh

The logic of it makes sense, if you watch the video. However if your machine isn't being taxed on the resources it free up already, then you'll see no difference. I'm in the beta for this and I can definitely see the benefit of it for people. Not for myself, but then I still want to contribute to the beta.

I used to have Game Booster installed. It definitely freed up lots of memory. Not sure I saw any benefit though. The best part was when it classified Steam as one of those "non-critical processes" and stopped it running until you set it as one of the things to ignore.

I'm sure older systems would see some benefit from it but a modern gaming box shouldn't need it.

Yeah it's more for awfully weak systems. It makes skyrim playable as opposed to a slideshow on my gfs laptop which has 2GB ram a 2.6Ghz dual core and some awful 4 series integrated intel graphics.

Downloaded it and tried to use the FPS overlay but it didn't work - 100% garbage

I vote bloat.

I have a 395 byte batch script that kills any random unnecessary processes.

Any self respecting geek should have disabled unnecessary services and startup guff anyway.

I used to have an Acer Travelmate laptop, awful thing with 256MB RAM, 1.5GHz processor, IGP. To get a few more FPS in most games I went into task manager and force-killed many of the running processes including explorer.exe - this actually worked quite well, so I imagine IOBit's software does too.

So if it disables all non critical processes, does it disable itself before launching the game as well?

It probably works. AMD had an app of a similar nature floating about the web a few years back. In full boost mode it crippled various bits of Windows. The result on my old PC was a 20-30% effective boost in CPU power, but at the cost of zero security features. I just disconnected from the internet and made sure to switch the app off and restart the PC before going online again. Not something I'd want to use nowadays though.

It has been a while since I had to make one of those.

Although that is sort of what I do with DosBox.
