Need the full power of your computer? No more need to close your browser. GX Control allows you to limit how much memory and CPU your browser will consume.
By default, the RAM limiter aims to strike a balance between memory usage and network quality. The browser will attempt to stay at or below the selected memory limit, but will prioritize web quality over the required memory limit. For example, if a browser can support playing a stream or file in the cloud, it will allow memory consumption to slightly exceed the limit. The “Hard Limit” setting forces the browser to stay at the selected memory limit no matter what. The browser will not exceed the selected memory limit for any reason, even if it means sacrificing your web browsing experience.
The CPU Limiter allows you to set a limit on the number of processes on your computer that the browser uses so that the rest can be saved for games. The purpose of both features of GX Control is to give you the ability to always keep your browser open, even if you are playing or streaming a resource intensive game.
