I like to take break from work and play computer games for half an hour to get rid of the humdrum of the everyday work life. In a way it revitalizes my brain cells and makes working much more interesting. The only problem with mixing fun with work is that you do not really have different systems for playing games and working. You have to do both the things on the same PC. In such a scenario, you may want to get the most out of your PC so that you can play games with better performance. If you keep running MS Word and MS Excel in the background and try to play Call of Duty – Black Ops, then it is not going to be a very pleasant experience.
The free Razer Cortex software can boost the gaming performance of your PC, making it a delight to play computers on it. Not only it boosts the system performance by shutting down unnecessary processes and freeing up CPU/GPU power and available RAM for the games, but it can also inform you about great discounts on the up and coming latest games. As you launch Razer Cortex for the very first time, it takes your entire PC screen and asks you to login using your Razer account (which is free to create).
It searches your PC for the game installations and automatically adds the detected games to the list. But you can also add the games manually in the case it missed one of your games. In the following screen shot, it has detected Unreal Tournament, Call of Duty and Need for Speed on my test PC.
You can launch the games in the list just by clicking on them. Before the games are launched, Razer Cortex automatically performs all the system optimizations to give the running game all the possible hardware juice and make it run as smooth as possible. You can also choose various boosting settings from under the Boost section and customize them for each of the games.
Under the Deals section, you can find the discounts for up-and-coming games. Some of the multi-player games are also for free under this section. For example, Need for Speed : World is available for free through the Origin.
In the settings section, you can make the Razer Cortex auto-start with windows, toggle its system tray icon, and even install the PC clients for various game providers like Steam, Origin, League of Legends and more.
Conclusion: Razer Cortex is a must-to-have software for all the games who use their PC to enjoy their favorite games. It can boost the gaming performance and you can also find great deals on new and old games alike.
