Editors' Review

Is your older computer struggling to keep up with the latest and greatest games? GameBoost claims to save you from having to boost your hardware by giving you more performance through software tweaks. However, any changes the trial version makes aren't noticeable at all. In fact, the program doesn't boost your computer's power or speed one bit.

The trial version of the program offers most of the performance tweaks for 29 days. The "fastest" performance upgrade isn't available unless you buy, though. GameBoost requires some administrator access to work, which makes you think it might live up to its name. However, while testing the trial version, no boost was noticeable after restarting. System processes were still eating the same amount of RAM and a quick gaming test offered no extra speed. An Internet speed test through Speedtest.net showed no noticeable increase, either. In fact, download speeds actually lost a few bits worth of speed.

The program's trial version just doesn't work. Perhaps the full version will show some improvement, but there are too many performance boosters on the market that are free and actually give you more power to even think about paying for GameBoost.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of GameBoost 2.4.1.2013.
