Does Game Booster Increase Gaming Performance, Especially FPS?
This a million-dollar question. When Windows 10 has a dedicated Game Mode feature, what extra benefits these game boosters can bring? Why do you need them, or why not? Let’s find out.
Can Game Booster Increase FPS?
I have used the smart game booster to see what it can do to improve my gaming experience. To test it, I closed all other programs on my Windows 10 PC. Then, Clicked on the boost button to activate the game booster. I opened the Age of Empire 2 DE to see the impact. I have used a pretty old PC with 7th gen core i7, 32 GB RAM with GTX 1050Ti GPU, and a laptop with 7th gen i5 processor with 16 GB RAM and 2 GB MX940 GPU.
On my PC, I didn’t notice any significant improvements. But, There were slightly higher FPS. Normally, In an initial state, I get 60 to 75 FPS. The game booster was a maximum of 78 while the temperature was 2/3′ Fahrenheit higher. However, After playing for a while, it didn’t have any impact on the gaming experience.
But, After using its super booster, the game ran a bit better while temperature was going high.
I have tried this on my laptop too. As the laptop was not that powerful as the PC, the game booster had a slightly better impact in the same game. After playing for a while, it became very hot, and I had to close the game. As the cooling system in the laptop was very poor, it became hot easily.
After observing these two situation, I found the game booster can increase FPS. However, It may not stay long if there is no proper cooling system.
I am not a pro gamer. But, I play games occasionally. Age of Empires 2 DE, Counter-Strike: GO, these are most common in my list. As these two already runs well on my PC, I did not get very significant improvement in my gaming experience with a game booster. However, On the laptop, I saw some impacts. If you have an average gaming desktop, a game booster may help you with a super boost. However, If you don’t have a good cooling system, it won’t help. Even it may decrease the performance after some time as the CPU and CPU will become very hot. In slim laptops, a game booster is useless as the cooling system is not designed for gaming.
The final answer to the popular question is, “A game booster can bring a slightly better gaming experience if the cooling system is good. But, It will not help if your cooling system is not good or if you try it on a slim laptop.” As the answer is mixed, you can try a game booster to see if it helps you. Some of them offer a free trial.
