Opera GX is a special version of the Opera browser, specifically tailored for a better gaming experience. This internet browser includes unique features to help you get the most out of both gaming and browsing. It has gaming specific features like resource limiting, always-on-top for games and Razer Chroma support.
The new Opera GX browser looks and feels much different than the standard browser and has different customizations. In addition to Opera having its own extensions store, the Opera browsers are also compatible with Google Chrome extensions.
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. 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.
