Razer Cortex Review

Sven Sorensen
Set of Razer tools to improve system performance and cut lag
A review of Razer Cortex by Sven Sørensen

Razer Cortex is a collection of system tools made available to help improve the performance of your PC, particularly when running games.

The application works by invoking a component called Razer Game Boost which suspends other processes in the background while running graphics-intensive games. This can help provide smoother game play and improve FPS.

Other features of Razer Cortex include optimization of RAM by limiting access to memory-hungry background processes when they're not being used; this can be helpful for owners of systems without sufficient memory.

Along with optimization tools, Razer Cortex also includes audio and video capture tools and provides a task manager which provides information about currently used system resources like CPU, hard drive, fan speed and more.

Overall, Razer Cortex can be a useful optimization application for people who have more bare-bones system setups.
