Minimal and lightweight application which enables you to view a graphical representation of CPU and memory, as well as optimize them

editor's review





RAMRush Portable is a software utility whose purpose is to aid individuals in viewing in real-time the CPU and memory usage, as well as free up RAM.

The perks of a portable app

Since this is the portable edition of RAMRush, you can bypass the installation process. This also means that it is not going to update the Windows registry and hard drive without your approval (like installers usually do), and it is not going to leave any kind of traces behind after its removal.

Most importantly, you can run RAMRush Portable on any computer you have been granted access to, on the fly, by simply moving the program files to an external data device, such as USB thumb drive.

Intuitive GUI and automatically optimize RAM

The interface is minimal and clean, as it only contains two panes in which you can view the graphical representation of the CPU and memory usage, in real-time. Moreover, it displays the percentage of CPU required for all your running processes, as well as the amount of RAM free, out of the total available.

It is non-obtrusive, as it sits in the system tray and only pops up when hovering over the icon, although you should know it is also possible to force its frame to always stay on top of other launched windows.

The graph is fully customizable with the help of the settings panel, a user-input keyboard shortcut is available for the optimization process and you can set up the tool to automatically run the aforementioned job when the memory amount is lower than 8%.

Bottom line

In conclusion, RAMRush Portable is a pretty efficient piece of software when it comes to viewing the amount of resources being used and optimizing them when necessary. While the interface is user-friendly and the response time is good, we would have liked to see more options pertaining to the optimization job.
