I need a software that can boost up RAM in Mac.

I have used such softwares for Windows.

Are there equivalents for Mac?

boosting up RAM? You mean programs like RAMDoubler back in the day? A link to a Windows equivalent would be useful for this question. – Troggy Sep 10 '10 at 22:29
@Sathya Because the question doesn't say it is for OS X . Anyways I deleted my answer – subanki Sep 10 '10 at 23:33

The software for windows really just increased the size of the page file. There isn't a programmatic way to increase your ram size. You can increase virtual memory but it's a poor tradeoff since hard drive seek speed is about 890,000 times slower than RAM.
