Editor's review PCBoost

PCBoost program icon

Just as the name suggests PCBoost? is software that boosts your PCs functions. It allows programs that require a lot of power to run faster and more efficiently than ever, Programs like do photo and video editing, allow games, video and music to be played require more processing power than others. PCBoost? allows such programs to run at faster speeds without you having to upgrade on your hardware. Most CPUs are capable of functioning at a higher level but programming lets them only provide a small portion of the power to each program. PCBoost? taps into that resource to allow you make better and faster use of your CPU. The program checks constantly on which programs are in active use and directs the CPU to provide more power to them. This means as long as the user has several programs running, the one running on top is given priority so that the task can be completed faster. If the user switches focus to another prom then PCBoost? has the CPU divert more power to the active program. In this way PCBoost? is making better use of the multi-core processors used in the manufacture of most PCs. Most operating systems do not engage as many of the multi-core processors as they should. By engaging more of the processors, PCBoost? allows other running programs to run at normal capacity while the program that is in the foreground is given higher priority and more power. This means most PC users are able to get the most out of their computers and not have to invest in upgraded ones just yet. Those whose machines are running slow will be amazed at how much faster they will be able to get work done.

I don't see any improvement. Just setting the priority of the application to "high" will not make my computer much faster. BTW: among the 8 ratings here, 4 positives come from the same person Christine. Curious.

I bought this software out of curiosity. It only takes up space in memory. I did a benchmark test before installing and another test after an speeg increase was 0% and the instalation doesn't even show where your performace improved so there never real was any improvement in the first place. While it was running I ran the analizer and it still reports that my PC can gain a substancial speed boost but it does nothing. It's a waste of money.
