    LucidLogix demonstrated today for the first time at Intel Developer Forum 2011 (IDF) the injection of HyperFormance technology into its Virtu Universal GPU virtualization software for outstanding gaming responsiveness, visual quality and frame rates.

    "Games are all about creating a suspension of disbelief and a more immersive overall lifelike experience," said Offir Remez, president and founder of Lucid. "HyperFormance technology provides a more responsive game interaction together with a clean visual image, making for a more pleasurable experience."

    HyperFormance, found in the new model Virtu Universal MVP, boosts gaming responsiveness performance by intelligently reducing redundant rendering tasks in the flow between the CPU, GPU and the display. 3D games put the greatest demands on both the CPU and GPU. And as the race for higher performance on the PC and now in notebooks never ends, both CPUs and GPUs keep gaining performance. Despite more powerful microprocessors, display refresh rate remained fairly flat over the years, at 60-75Hz. The exception is found in 120Hz refresh rates for 3D stereo displays (used to produce 60 FPS for each eye). Lucid takes advantage of this disparity and eliminates redundant rendering tasks and predicts potential synchronization issues in the graphics delivery pipeline and intelligently removes and/or replaces them for better game control.

    Called Virtu Universal MVP, the software includes the base features of Virtu Universal technology, which virtualizes integrated GPU and discrete GPU for best of breed functionality as well as features Virtual Vsync for no-compromise visual quality. With the added benefits of HyperFormance technology, Virtu Universal MVP improves game performance responsiveness in many ways:
    • Boosts responsiveness to the game at any frame rate
    • Improves gaming frame rates 30-70 percent
    • Increases Vsync frame rates- up to 120 FPS and beyond
    • Sharpens visual quality without tearing
    Virtu Universal MVP is available to system platform manufacturers using Intel Sandy Bridge Z68/H67/H61, and other Intel integrated graphics, as well as many AMD processor-based PCs and notebooks. Virtu technology has been verified with hundreds of games and applications and can be found bundled with almost all of the world's Intel Z68 motherboards from the leading brands.

    Really? I want a review TPU!

    Could this be what makes me decide on my next mobo purchase? looks like it might be.

    Sound's like an artificial frame filler.

    P67 has no support for the CPU's iGPU, so no, not for P67.

    so will this support anything with an IGP and dedicated graphics? will it work on older hardware?

    I do beleive this is related to Virtu-enbabled devices(H67/Z68, etc) only. But then i'd be wrong, can work with any IGP, as it's really just software rendering management.

    my my my, can I get a quad crossfire rig working with iGPU yet? 'becuase i want real VGAS to power down when at desktop, downright turn off, even(PCIe does support hotswapping, even), but to ramp up and push all three of my monitors, too! WIthout stutter!;)

    I just want to know if it will work with a G41 or something like that

    So wait a minute... This "Virtu Universal MVP" will simply be a software download?

    I already have the Virtu software installed on my Z68 platform. Does this replace that?

    Such an enormous power saver that'd be! :rockout:

    i really think we need someone *HINT HINT W1ZZARD* to do a microstutter test with crossfire and SLI... and lucid.
