Process Lasso Pro 8.1 was available as a giveaway on June 9, 2015!
Process Lasso is a process priority optimization and system automation utility. It provides a ProBalance Technology, which restrains CPU hogs and helps your computer retain responsiveness during CPU loads and helps to adjusts the priorities and/or CPU affinities of running programs on-demand. Process Lasso, and it's ProBalance algorithm, are as usual and efficacious for new PCs as they are for old PCs, especially since the speed of processors hasn't been increasing a lot in recent years, replaced instead by increased parallelism (more cores).
Core optimization technologies allow you to choose on what CPUs/cores a process should run, as well as what their CPU priority class and I/O priority class should be. You can also disallow specified processes from running, log all processes run, and even set various other process rules.
What's New: Gaming Mode has been improved to include a pre-customized power plan for maximal performance. Right out of the box, it can even enter Gaming Mode when you play any Steam game. Of course, the ProBalance algorithm also continues to keep CPU hogs out of the way of your favorite game. Further, we've begun early addition of a selective RAM trimming technology to tackle RAM hogs.
Bitsum team does not believe in RAM 'optimizers' because they operate in such a brutish fashion, forcing everything to be paged out, resulting in all pages of memory in use being paged right back in (a hard page fault). Bitsum SmartTrim is more selective and discriminate. It's a scalpel, not a hacksaw.
