Raptr, a popular game tracking and social platform for gamers, has released one of its most significant client updates to date. Specifically redesigned to improve performance, the latest client update slashes the CPU usage and the memory footprint by 66% on average.
Version 1.6 of the Raptr client has been optimized from the ground up to be faster, more lightweight, and use far less resources. Raptr’s benchmark testing indicates that most users will see a 25% to 75% reduction in memory footprint, settling around 30 MB on average when the Raptr client is active. Raptr’s benchmark testing for CPU usage shows a reduction range from 33% to 75%. In addition, users with a lot of friends in their buddy list will also see significantly reduced load times, averaging at least 3 times faster than before.
“Optimizing the performance of the Raptr client has been one of the top user requests for a while and we’re excited to introduce such a massive improvement,” said Dennis Fong, CEO of Raptr. “Our goal is to constantly iterate on our service with the feedback of our six million users as a guide. These improvements pave the way for significant new features we plan to launch in the next few months.”
