MADE FOR ALL PCs
AUTO OR EXPERT CONTROL
Razer Cortex: Boost improves your PC’s performance by managing and killing processes and apps you don’t need while gaming (like business apps and background helpers). This frees up valuable resources and RAM that’s needed by intense games, and can fix some problems like stuttering graphics and laggy gameplay.
When you launch your game, Cortex: Boost automatically kicks in. And when you’re done gaming, boost auto-restores your computer back to the state it was before. Even if you launch your game from Steam, Origin, or your desktop, your system will still conveniently auto-boost.
Cortex: Boost comes with recommendations out-of-the-box from our optimization specialists to speed up most users’ systems. With expert tweak controls, advanced users can delve deeper and fine-tune their boost settings to an amazingly granular level.
PCs with spin drives will benefit from defragging which reduces the travel distance of the drive head. Unlike common defrag apps that clump apps together and data together, Cortex: Boost defrags game folders; so game app and game data is closer. That means quicker loading times for games and faster access to maps and level changes.
The FPS counter is a live stat that overlays in the corner of your game that shows you the exact frames-per-second that your system is pumping out at the time. This is an invaluable tool to get instant feedback on tweaking your boost settings.
Though the system is working, its age shows when he's gaming, so he quickly installs Razer Cortex and gets to work.
He tells Cortex to scan his system to find installed games. Any games that aren’t automatically added, he clicks the ‘plus’ sign and points to the game folder. This allows Cortex to monitor the system and auto-boost when games are launched, no matter how they’re launched.
Josh goes to the ‘Boost’ tab and makes sure apps he won’t use while gaming are checked to be shut down, like spreadsheets or chat apps. He ensures apps he will use while gaming will still be available like Razer Comms and his browser. Cortex already identifies gaming apps and common apps so he doesn’t have to do anything here.
Next Josh goes to the ‘defrag’ tab and selects his game folders to defrag. This process take some time but it will move all the game app and game data closer together and make older hard drives perform more efficiently.
Now Josh is able to play some of the latest games with his friends even though he’s using a much older system.
