Opera has created a new web browser specifically designed for gamers enabling uses to set limits on how much RAM and CPU usage your browser will take providing you with extra power for your games without the need to close your browser. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Opera GX web browser and its unique features to help you get the most out of both gaming and browsing at the same time.
Opera explains a little more about the Opera GX web browser and its features to control your computers RAM and CPU. “GX Control’s RAM limiter lets you choose how much memory Opera GX uses. The default setting in the RAM Limiter aims to strike a balance between memory use and experience. The browser will try to stay at or below the selected memory allotment, but it will prioritize experience over the strict memory amount. For example, if it’s able to keep a stream going or a cloud-based file active, it will let the memory usage go slightly over the set limit. The Hard Limit setting forces the browser to stay under the chosen memory limit no matter what. The browser will not for any reason exceed the selected memory cap, even if browsing experience must be sacrificed.”
“The CPU Limiter lets you put a cap on how much of your computer’s processing the browser uses, so the rest can be reserved for gaming. The goal of both GX Control features is to enable you to always be able to keep your browser open, even if you’re playing or streaming a resource-heavy game.”
Features include :
– Game console-inspired visual design and sounds
– Exclusive wallpapers
– Razer Chroma integration (adjust your Razer Chroma keyboard & mouse colors based on browser settings)
– Twitch integration that lets you login through the sidebar, and see when streamers you follow are live.
