Razer Game Booster
Improve your PCs gaming performance

Razer Game Booster is a PC optimisation tool which uses several techniques to try and improve your gaming performance.

The program can apply a range of Windows tweaks, for example, without you having to go poking around in the Registry. We're not sure how useful most of these will be, but you can try them in a couple of clicks, and restore them just as easily later, so they're perhaps worth a try.

Game Booster includes a simple defrag tool which optimises only the game or folder you specify, hopefully improving speeds without the need to defrag your entire drive.

A "Drivers" tab highlights key gaming drivers - audio, graphics - and offers to help you upgrade them.

And the core "Boost" function tries to identify unnecessary background processes, then close them on demand, freeing up valuable system resources for your games (or any other heavy-duty programs you might be using).

All this is presented in a bizarrely dark interface, where some elements are so greyed out that you might miss them entirely. A distinct lack of help may also leave you confused. And if your PC is reasonably well optimised already, the program is unlikely to make any noticeable difference to your gaming speeds.

Still, Game Booster is free, so if you're desperate for a little extra PC performance then there's no harm in giving it a try.

Verdict:

Game Booster provides tools to free up a few system resources. This may not make much difference - it all depends on how well your system is optimised at the moment - but as the program is free, it's (just about) worth a try.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
