A slow PC can hamper your productivity especially if you spend a large part of your day dishing out tasks from your computer. If you are someone who enjoys engaging in a heavy gaming session, a slow PC is the last thing you want. That being said, if you have an old PC, an optimization tool like JetBoost can help you enhance your computer’s performance. Let’s see how this tool fares up.
JetBoost is a lightweight, free-to-use software that can help you enhance the performance of your Windows PC with one click. It tweaks your system in a way that your PC reaches its supreme performance. For this, it releases system resources by closing unnecessary services and processes that run in the background. It even lets you prioritize processes as well.
Based on the model you have selected, JetBoost optimizes your experience. For instance, you can click on Customize next to the Boost option and check how much memory or CPU is consumed by a process.
You can even review Windows, non-Windows and other services and check mark those that you want to disable.
As a free tool for Windows, JetBoost does a decent job. However, if you are looking for some more advanced tools and are ready to spend for a premium subscription for more features, you can check out some other great game boosters for Windows.
One of the highlights of JetBoost 2.0 is that it has a simple and easy-to-understand interface. The one-click boost functionality can be seen right on the home screen. Next to it is a customize button that drives you to the processes, services, non-windows services and other services that you might want to review and close. Towards the right, you can also see a small “Recommended” button that shows you the recommended settings. To go back to the home screen, you can click on the back button.
JetBoost helps increase the performance of your Windows 10 by shutting down all unnecessary processes and services. It only shuts down those processes which otherwise hamper the normal functioning of your PC. Side by side it even shows you how much an application or service is consuming CPU and memory.
You can also set up your own boost model where you can select applications that you wish to shut down temporarily. For instance, you can shut down Windows and non-Windows services which are just running for no reason and are just consuming system resources.
You need your Windows computer to work at its best while carrying out your day-to-day tasks. For instance, you might want to optimize your computer for gaming. Here you would want it to be free of all distractions. JetBoost does exactly that.
JetBoost for Windows 10, 11, (and even the earlier versions) come with three boost modes namely – Game mode, Work mode, and Custom mode.
The “Game mode” detects unnecessary programs running in the background and closes them so that you can extract maximum performance while playing high-end games. The “Work mode” works on the same line and configures your computer so that you can gain maximum productivity when performing routine tasks. In the “Custom mode”, you can create your own boosting model.
There are many ways in which you can customize the settings of JetBoost for Windows 10. These broadly include settings related to assigning hotkeys, changing the transparency of the application, getting automatic updates, or upgrading the service list.
JetBoost 2.0 is a portable application. This means you can read and write its configuration settings into a folder, transfer it to a flash drive, and use it on other computers as well.
There are two ways in which you can fetch Updates. You can click on the hamburger icon with a dropdown at the top right corner of the screen and then click on Check for updates.
JetBoost also gives you the option to check for updates every time the program is launched. For this, you can go to Settings, click on Automatic Update from the left-hand side, and click on the checkbox that says Check for updates when program is launched.
Advanced users can also enable network proxy and fill in fields such as “Host”, “Port”, User Name, and Password.
JetBoost is freeware and can be used free of cost.
When we ran the 1-click boost, it stopped 12 services, 1 process and increased the performance by 38%. However, the application itself froze at around 88% a couple of times due to which we had to close it via the Task Manager.
As for game optimization, we did see a boost in our game performance but, as for overall experience, a tool like WTFast does a far better job.
