Review: Razer Game Booster has many features and delivers serious performance

Get more out of your games with this resource-management program for Windows.

Razer Game Booster doesn't just increase your computer's performance; it improves the way you play by adding cool features to any game. It even works, in a limited capacity, on programs that have nothing to do with gaming. If you need to crank out a little extra performance from an older computer, this program helps make it happen.

Razer Game Booster helps you manage your computer's resources so you have more memory or processing power allocated to your game of choice. The program scans your computer automatically to find any games you play and then lets you adjust the settings of each, individually. It found several non-gaming programs when we tested it, but asking it to boost these seemed to confuse the program. It just kept looping its startup process instead of boosting them. The program had no problem boosting our games, though. In fact, it did a great job. In addition to handing out your computer's resources, Razer Game Booster adds a few fun features, like a screenshot hot key and a frame accelerator. It even lets you defragment the section of your hard drive that holds the game for boosted performance. The program makes you sign up for an account, but it lets you carry your settings with you once you do.

If you take gaming really seriously, every little speed boost is worthwhile. This program gives you exactly what you need, plus a few custom add-ons, and presents all of it in a solid interface. Razer Game Booster is a must-have add-on for power gamers who don't want to leave anything to chance.
