Razer Launching System Tweak Utility Called Game Booster

Razer announced on Thursday the launch of a closed beta for Razer Game Booster, a system tweak utility based on IObit's Game Booster software. The tool optimizes a user’s system settings, thus improving PC game performance while also providing the ability to share "favorite moments" with friends in the process.

"Razer Game Booster takes what Razer is all about and supercharges it," said Robert "RazerGuy" Krakoff, president of Razer USA. "We are huge fans of IObit’s Game Booster software and we are dedicated to providing gamers with the absolute best experience possible. To that end, we are committed to everything that adds performance and fun to gaming, which includes software and the systems they run on."

Razer said that with the click of a button, gameplay becomes faster, smoother and easier to launch. To make that happen, the upcoming tool includes the following modes:

Game Mode
Focus in on your game by temporarily shutting down unnecessary functions and applications, concentrating all of your resources purely on gaming. Applications shut down prior to gaming are restored when user exits the game.

Calibrate Mode
Simplify the process of setting up your PC’s performance by conveniently providing you with the option to tweak, defrag, or update any outdated drivers.

Share Mode
A bonus feature where you can show off your skills, create tutorials, and more, with the ability to record real-time audio/video and capture screenshots.

"Razer did extensive research and testing in partnership with IObit during the development of Razer Game Booster, improving and updating features to bring about the most intuitive and powerful application possible," the company said. "The software conveniently stores all games under one hub, and provides a unique boosting feature that enhances the functions of a PC for maximum game performance."

Although Razer Game Booster is currently in internal closed beta, PC gamers will have an opportunity to be a part of the testing. To participate, complete the beta signup form here. The FAQ and system/hardware requirements can be read here as well.

    Yeah but thats not hard to do, the fact that I got up out of bed this morning is better news than EA's BF deal.

    So far though from the description it almost sounds like it does what most of us do anyway. But if it simplifies it and is of use, good for them hopefully someone will find it useful.

    Can you still get a noticeable improvement by shutting down unnecessary services on a modern system?

    Can anyone provide any interesting benchmarks on this subject?

    Edit: Never mind.

    Finished reading the article and found out it's based off the game booster from IObit.

    this util has been around for a long time, just not by Razor, i have used it previously on a system with 2gb ram and win7. It freed up enough resources to run some games smoothly that wouldn't otherwise. Its worthwhile if your system is on the borderline of running something smoothly. It does nothing for a specced up system.

    Most enthusiasts do the tweaking themselves, and not necessarily for gaming. I disable unnecessary services and background applications on every Windows install I do for myself.

    I thought it was a hoax. One of those "April Fools!" gadgets.
