This program successfully optimizes your computer's RAM, though we did notice a few stability problems. When you launch Ram Turbo, it will automatically defragment and free up a certain amount of RAM, though you can choose to optimize more or less memory with a handy slider. You can also change the default settings, and we'd suggest that multitaskers do so, as the program can impede the use of other applications. The interface is basic, with a simple moving graph displaying RAM available and in use. RamTurbo has a few extra features, including the ability to delete the Windows Clipboard and clear the Recent Documents folder, though both functions are available elsewhere in Windows. The Task Manager replacement wasn't particularly useful either, as it won't sort running processes. In our tests, the application worked mostly fine, though it occasionally became very sluggish and nearly crashed. Still, if your PC seems dreadfully slow, Ram Turbo is probably worth checking out.

RamTurbo is a Windows memory manager and system performance booster. RamTurbo increases your file/disk cache IO performance, stops system crashes resulting in more productive uptime, and increases system stability with automatic memory optimization. RamTurbo also recovers your memory left behind by faulty applications, which do not return it back to the operating system. Your computer will achieve high performance using this Ram Optimizer utility. No need to buy additional expensive memory for your computer. RamTurbo will defragment system RAM for faster access times. No memory upgrade alone can do this. RamTurbo is highly configurable and very easy to use.
