    Razer, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, today announced the beta release of Razer Game Booster, software that optimizes a user's system settings, improving game performance and providing the ability to share favorite moments with friends. This software enhances in-game experiences that players of all skill levels—from professional to casual—will appreciate. With the click of a button, gameplay becomes faster, smoother and easier to launch.

    The program is the latest evolution of the CNET Editor five-star-rated IObit Game Booster software, an immensely popular precursor that has been downloaded over 100 million times.

    Razer Game Booster includes the following features:

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of setting up your PC's performance by conveniently providing you with the option to tweak, defrag, or update any outdated drivers.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

    "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 Game Booster is in internal closed beta, but fans have the opportunity to be part of an exclusive team of testers. Sign-up at www.razerzone.com/gamebooster.

    I dunno, I have a quadcore CPU with 8 virtual cores so I don't think this will do anything for me. It might be useful though on some more simpler setups. I might give it a try on the EEEPC I have although I haven't really tried gaming at all on that one. Maybe with this stuff some decent games will run...

    What it does is close down background and foreground services during gaming[or any program you choose to run with it] in a user defined configuration, and it can also run/boost games by running them in a virtual desktop too if the user desires, it also has a tweaking, game defrag and driver update functionality as well, ive been using it for about 3/4 years now, its got better and better.

    This is going to be one of those programs that might give you a few FPS at best. Then when you think about it, it may not have actually given you that performance, because now it looks like went back up a few frames. At first you enjoy the software, then you realize that it is just a waste of time and is more of a detriment to your startup process, and finally decide to uninstall. I guess the programmers were bored and wanted to give this a go.

    I used to use this program a lot because of my last pc was running on board gpu. It only helps a little bit for me.

    I'll try this out. I like the idea.

    I've been using Iobits game booster. Its not bad. Shuts everything down so nothings running in back ground to get full optimization to play your game. when you come out of game, just click off and it starts everything back up to normal.

    Ahwell its free, and it has a game defrag which can help resolve issues sometimes as well as system tweaks, and if youve got a chit rigg it can help, if it gets your fps from say 25 up to 30, then its working!

    I think for nothing, its quite good value actually. Especially on laptops.

    Its not like that at all. You tell it which processes you want turned off while gaming, and it turns them back on when your done. You can choose which services you want off, or use a safe pre defined list like aero desktop stuff.

    Waste of time with modern systems. Also disabling things may get you 1 or 2 frames but not worth the instability that it comes with.

    +1 to what Mailman said. it hardly makes any difference to get an extra 2-3fps

    It's not meant for modern gaming rigs etc. It's meant for the ppl where 5 fps is a big difference and they don't know how to disable services etc

    Your system would not have anything outside margin of error. Take a single core sempron, and I am sure it will net some benefit.
