PCBoost Editor's Review

There are a large variety of programs that offer their users to improve their computers speed and how well it runs. Obviously, many do not actually provide this and instead are just trying to get money out of you. Others however, have been found to be excellent pieces of software that improve your CPU. PCBoost also promises to improve your computers speed. Before we can believe that achieves what it says it does, we must first do a series of tests.

I downloaded PCBoost and found it downloaded and set its self up quite easy. Which is a good start, however it was soon ruined after its interface opened up. The edges of the interface look rather blotchy and poorly designed. This wasn't a good start as the interface is a really important thing to design well as it can deter users very quickly, me especially. Looking through the settings, there was no way of getting rid of this pixilated patch, that's a real shame. Next, I suppose I should talk about the effect it has on your computer. It does in fact have an effect on your computer speed, which it boosts. So it can be said that this product isn't a scam but does in fact work. However to what extent, is a completely different story. Unfortunately, PC boost does not put your computer to its full capacity. In which I mean, it doesn't put your computer into full performance. Therefore, I would say that using a different computer performance improvement program would be of better use. I found that the settings were quite easy to configure, but I could see it being potentially difficult for other users and so I must also say that this software is unfortunately, not user friendly.

Throughout using PCBoost, I was constantly bombarded with pop ups trying to get me to register the program and buy it. I understand, the many freeware programs do this to advertise the product and get people to buy it. But in this case, the pop ups became so annoying it actually ended up me deleting the program. Pop ups are widely known to reduce computer speed, and so the ironic fact that a computer performance improving program has them is unbelievable.

Overall, my feeling about this program is mixed. Obviously, if you download the full version it is quite cheap compared to other well known performance improving programs. However, you get what you pay for, an incredible piece of software that barely does its job, whilst throwing copious amounts of pop ups at you. I give this program a rating of 2/5, I would suggest looking for something a bit better.



PCBoost Publisher's Description

PCBoost allows you to run programs such as games, video production, photo editing software and any software that requires excessive processing power to run much faster than the software was originally designed for. With little to no effort you can instantly force programs and games to run faster on your computer without having to purchase new hardware. Most programs are designed to use a minimal amount of CPU (processor) power which often leads to the CPU being idle and not used to its fullest potential, with PCBoost your computer is able to take advantage of this by allocating more CPU power to the currently active application. PCBoost constantly monitors which application is running as the foreground and active program; it then tells the CPU to give this application priority over all other applications. This direct instruction to the CPU forces the application to get more attention and quickly finish any tasks that are required as soon as possible. If you switch to another program or game PCBoost instantly notices this change and instructs the CPU to set the old application to a normal priority and the newly active and foreground application to a higher priority. This approach allows the current and active program to always use the most CPU power as possible. PCBoost also takes advantage of multi-core processors found in most computers today. Generally the more CPU cores you have the faster your computer will operate, however most applications are not written to take advantage of multi-core processors. When a multi-core processor is detected PCBoost instantly instructs the foreground application to run on a CPU core that is being used the least. For instance if your computer has two CPU cores and core one is at 75% and core two is at 25%, then PCBoost will make sure the application will run on core two. This feature allows applications to always have the most processing power available and instantly makes your computer run faster.
