Do you need every ounce power that your computer can provide? You don’t have to close your browser. GX Control allows you to limit the RAM and CPU usage of your browser.
GX Control’s RAM Limiter allows you to choose how much memory Opera GX uses. The RAM Limiter default setting aims to achieve a balance between memory usage and user experience. While the browser will attempt to keep the memory limit at or below its maximum, it will prioritise experience over strict memory limits. It will allow memory usage to go slightly above the limit if it is able keep a stream running or a file that is cloud-based active. The browser will not exceed the set memory limit if it is set to Hard Limit. Even if browsing experience is compromised, the browser will not exceed the chosen memory limit.
The CPU Limiter allows you to limit the amount of processing your browser uses on your computer so that gaming can take place. Both GX Control features are designed to allow you to open your browser even when you’re streaming or playing a resource-intensive game.
