It reduces the time and frustration by automatically making the system resources free to avoid lag. It shows the number of CPU Lag(s) avoided just below the toggle button when it is enabled.

  • RAMJet

This is an appealing feature which monitors and senses the system’s memory demands and automatically maximizes the available RAM. RAMJet automatically balances memory demands and prevents low RAM instability. The number of RAM optimization and the amount of memory freed is indicated below the toggle button.
