Memory optimizers function mainly by flushing data from memory--the problem with this is if the data is not in RAM, the program needs to access the harddrive to get it (and that is much slower than RAM).
Some say that this flushing process defragments ram, and then the ram then fills back up in sequential fashion so that the data now in ram reads faster. Sounds logical, but I have never seen any real proof that programs can access data stored sequentially faster than data not stored sequentially--plus you have to contend with the fact that RAM Optimizers are generally set to continuously flush ram on a scheduled basis (every X minutes), which negates any performance boost since your programs are back to hitting the harddrive again).
I've heard people talk about some ram optimizers that will allign data in RAM in different ways to improve performance, rather than flush the ram, but I have not seen such programs. Would this work? I am skeptical.
I would say give them wide berth
