    "Every frame counts. GB ups my framerate noticeably."

    December 31, 2012  |   By mere_iguana

    Pros

    It's free. (thanks btw)
    It shuts off services and running processes at user discretion, and remembers your settings.
    The game desktop frees up the GPU from dealing with aero themes/eye-candy.
    'Boost & Launch' button is great for quickly opening games.
    Configuration is easy and there are many options. This pleases me.

    Cons

    It's always asking me to "rate" it... hopefully this review will stop that from happening.
    It always seems to have a certain game highlighted by default. maybe the most recently -installed- game? But I would like it if the 'most played' game would be selected by default. One less click between me & zombies. I found an option that was similar to this but didn't seem to work?

    Summary

    Awesome (FREE) product. I use it to run all my PC games, and there is a major difference to when i'm not using it. Especially on an older PC, I need every little bit of processing power it has to run CPU-heavy games. For instance, this is a 2005-era rig with a P4 h/t 3.0ghz, 3gb RAM, 1gb GDDR3 radeonHD4670. Games like Black Ops or BLUR are almost unplayable at anything but 640x480.. until...BAM turn on GameBooster. instant playability for games i otherwise would have deleted. MW2 runs in 1080 with high graphics where before it had to be at most 800x600 and low graphics to get an acceptable framerate. I'd recommend GB to anyone who isn't satisfied with their framerates or are just BARELY scraping the "minimum system requirements" of a certain game... give gamebooster a try, it works great for me and my dinosaur.
