CPUBalance Pro – Restrain CPU Hogs to Improve PC Responsiveness.
CPUBalance is near-Freeware (Freemium) that contains ProBalance, Bitsum’s proven and real-world demonstrable technology to retain system responsiveness during high loads, or even save you from a hard reset during a worst-case scenario.
CPUBalance is unique in that it can either run independent of Process Lasso, or along-side Process Lasso, offering extended functionality over the ‘base’ ProBalance algorithm. That includes a sliding aggressiveness scale, an easy access system tray icon, and a newer ‘core technology’ than is available in Process Lasso, since it has a slightly longer development cycle due to its greater number of features.
CPUBalance takes our famous, time-tested (since 2002!) and exclusive ProBalance algorithm that is proven to retain system responsiveness during high CPU loads. It can’t fix all responsiveness problems, but its impact on a high CPU load, even on modern multi-core CPU’s, is amazing. Real-world demos like saving a file in multimedia editing software is a great example; your PC is brought to a sluggish state until you switch away from that app (letting ProBalance kick in since it excludes the foreground app by default), then you see a night and day difference. It’s hard to believe, so test it yourself. You can create your own ‘high load’ demo, and it does *not* need to run at anything but a normal priority class with normal priority threads. That is all it takes to severely impact the responsiveness of Windows, to the point of it being unusable, and hence the problem that ProBalance resolves.
While CPUBalance can stand apart from Process Lasso, it can also run along-side it with *perfect* integration (when complete). It uses the same core engine (Bitsum’s processgovernor.exe), so you get the same algorithm with either product, and the two do not conflict with one another. Instead, CPUBalance offers an additional system tray icon and easier access to ProBalance controls. In the future, it will offer more UI functions that may not be present in Process Lasso. However, Process Lasso is always the ‘big dog’ and the ‘upsell’ that includes everything, all our many algorithms.
Difference between Pro and Free?
At present, nothing except your name. That’s right, it is 100% free right now. That may change going forward with certain feature restrictions or such. For this first release, we just wanted to show off our technology. That said, now is the time to buy if you want the best deal, or want to support the project, and we very much appreciate that! *IF* we ever restrict features, it will be like Process Lasso, only those on the fringes.
Why not just go 100% freeware? Because developing Windows software is perhaps the most expensive common OS ecosystem to develop for. Digital signing, your own storefront and licensing, MSDN subscription, and so much more. It is amazing how much developers are charged, but that is a story for another day.
