IObit Game Assistant 2 is a software monitoring program to organise games in Windows PC.
IObit Game Assistant 2 was created by IObit Technology to be used as a resource for avid computer game players. It is categorized as a computer software utility and is meant to improve how the player's PC performs during game play. The utility offers screenshot capture during games, temperature monitoring of computer hardware, and lays out the player's installed games in a neat interface for easy playing. Post-installation, new games can be added to IObit Game Assistant 2 using its Addfunction which also works for Web games.
As part of its usefulness, Game Assistant software is meant to free more RAM upon the start of any game launched from its control panel. The graphical monitor shows CPU, GPU, and motherboard temperature which is important to prevent overheating. Overheating, of course, leads to hardware damage inside the PC. A nice bonus feature is the ability to be assigned a hotkey for quick activation.
IObit Game Assistant 2 is as easy to use as the original software utility. The interface is simple and uses less than 10 MB RAM on most computer systems. It is compatible with other game interfaces and will list any games the player has installed. Resource monitoring is also beneficial to players who may not have the latest system and would like more feedback about how their computer handles more graphic intensive games.

IObit Game Assistant 2 updates hardware drivers, defragments game directories, and suggests gaming tools and settings which will help to enhance computer performance. Conflicting programs and processes are quickly taken care of by IObit Game Assistant 2, and once things are up to date and optimised it is generally one-click to access games inside the software utility and start playing them.
