So would Gamesbooster be the answer then or at least a program able to run along side PL's gaming/multimedia mode? Or does it do the same job in that it cuts out process and software thats not required?
I use both but wonder if i only need to use one. PL preferably.
Based on my usages of these two programs, I would recommend both GBoost and JetBoost along side Process Lasso. GBoost is not a process or service shutdown type of program. The settings do cause shutdowns, but those are just installed programs. Native GBoost optimization is more like Process Lasso without the flexibility of configuration. It restrains in the same way, though, and it is also a heavy lifter in that it is set to perform some pretty deep restraint. It's not too much though. The native qualities of JetBoost will be very rarely talked about, because the settings menu is completely based around shutting things down. However, if you limit the shutdowns to one program process (that you would shut down to play a game, anyway) and study what the program does by itself with no shutdowns selected, it's a pretty amazing program. It's not as deep a restrainer as GBoost, but it does have the quality of causing resources to be delivered to Explorer.exe in the form of improved mouse and keyboard functions, smoother scrolls, better windows drags, faster folder opens, and more responsive program opens.
I like to think of what these kinds of programs can do as insurance against freezes and malfunctions. Without a doubt in my opinion, Process Lasso is the supreme entity for improving run-time optimization. In its own way, it finds a way to control and focus all programs including game optimizers.
I would also say not to overlook Process Lasso's g-booster setting. It does put a new attitude on the foreground, and, if all your other Process Lasso settings are on the mark, it will give that little extra dimension that can make so much difference when it comes to games...
