Razer Cortex 9.6 Closed Beta

Userlevel 7

Dear Insiders and PUBG Fans!

If you prefer to Winner Winner Chicken Dinner on your PC, then you don't want to miss out on the Razer Cortex 9.6 Razer Cortex Beta.

What's new?

Razer Cortex: Booster Prime is designed to optimize game settings automatically on your PC to achieve that sweet, sweet spot for gaming. In the beta, you can test this feature exclusively for PUBG on PC. For those that don't play PUBG, stay tuned for announcements when we open up this feature for other games.

How does it work?

Razer Cortex: Booster Prime adopts machine learning technology to generate a set of specialized game settings intelligently.

First, it detects your PC's configurations including CPU, GPU, RAM, and screen resolution. It then computes the settings needed for your PC to achieve an estimated lowest & highest FPS (Frame Per Second) for a specific game. All this is possible with machine learning as it's able to figure out optimal game configurations even across different PC's and setups.

Each predicted FPS corresponds with an optimized setting which ranges from high-quality mode to high-performance mode. With the predicted FPS, you can then set your preferred FPS to get your optimized game settings.

Simply slide for your preferred mode!

Based on this example, "competitive" mode is best recommended by Razer Cortex: Booster Prime.

Just joined! this is pretty cool! I am VERY excited to try this out. It will be interesting to see if there is a difference in gameplay. I am sure there will be! It is a razer program after all.

Too bad i don't play PUBG, i would've tried it for Fortnite tho which is a very broken game, technically speaking. But i'm also excited to see which new games would be available to optimize in the future!

Awesome updates!
Very excited to see what other games will be coming soon, to bad Battlefield V isn't available yet, would be cool to see how the performance on my PC would be with this beta and get some rewards at the same time.

I generally don't trust game boosters 😛

The idea reminds me of nvidia experience program.
Surely it looks friendly and easy to adjust games to the users set up for performance or quality preferences the word "Prime" is that caught my eye thought.Does this mean it will be a paid service?Cortex so far is a must have for gamers due to the boost/system info and cclean mostly.
I consider myself an advanced pc user so paying for a service that i can do manually or through windows apps or anyother app, well, i wouldn't.
I'll join the beta of course and hope to see something that worth paying for a service if thats the case.
Signed it right away !!
Hmmmmmmm ✌️
When I see some company slap on machine learning I know they are getting serious with R&D.

i don't play PUBG either. will just be here quietly waiting in my li'l corner until this comes out of beta.
Booster Prime rollout.

More games.
Now that's a really good reason for people like me to restart playing PUBG :smile_:
This looks very handy. :smile_:
I don't play PUBG (exept when it's for P2P) so i can't really appreciate this new feature.
But i can't wait to see this applied to other games.

I haven't played PUBG for a months, but I'll try it on my PC 😛 Maybe it'll be less laggy.

Is the Cortex itself doing the changing of graphics settings?

By broken you mean unoptimized? I've seen worse but I kinda agree.

If only the boost could make me less noob at PUBG xD

Hopefully they`ll add more supported games 😮 as this looks pretty nice
It sounds like another Nvidia's GeForce Experience software.

I personally don't like any type of software optimizing my game settings automatically, running with so called "Game Booster" or "System Booster" detecting my CPU, RAM, GPU and Screen Resolution deciding what to change... It can make things worse depending on the game within specific detailed graphic settings...I had and I know many players that uninstalled Nvidia's GeForce Experience...I rather do that myself within game graphic settings, it's common sense stuff. Most PC gamers know what to do as they build their own systems.
Looks good and working fine.

PUBG's been running pretty good the last year or so. My favorite settings have been Ultra on Textures, AA, and View Distance. And then Very Low on everything else (Low makes it look a lot better if you can still get high frame rates) 144hz, 165, or 240hz are your friend for this game. If you get stuttering disabling Fullscreen Optimization helped mine. Edit: Actually I think closing Synapse 3 is the best thing to stop stuttering, I close it everytime before I play and it fixes it.
Id love to see this for Destiny 2 and overwatch. both have areas with extreme fps drops that a tool like that could help with
do we have to uninstall existing?

No, it's only an update.
You just have to subscribe to the beta.
Should I run Cortex even if i have a monster of a PC? I have Cortex on my RP2 but will it just be unnecessary on my PC?

Even on a high end rig some optimisation can't hurt.
