LucidLogix GPU Virtualization
New stuff come Lucid.
It seems the new technology will allow the system to switch between integrated video and discrete video depending on the load of the rig. Nice stuff which will allow you to save power when browsing the web and give your full power from a discrete GPU when ready to play a game.
Called Virtu, the Lucid GPU [URL=http://pro-clockers.com/newsarchive/1776-lucidlogix-gpu-virtualization.html#]virtualization[/URL] software is able to assign tasks in real time to the best available graphics resource based on power, performance and features considerations, with no need for additional hardware. If high end graphics power is needed for applications like DirectX 11, high-resolution 3D gaming, the system will assign the job to the discrete GPU. If not, the discrete GPU automatically goes into idle mode, while heat drops, fan speed slows down and GPU utilization goes down to zero, resulting in a green, power-efficient, long-lasting system.
“What we have really accomplished here is a seamless visual experience where it is not necessary to choose between the amazingly rich media features of Intel Sandy Bridge platform, like HD playback and powerful video transcoding, and the [URL=http://pro-clockers.com/newsarchive/1776-lucidlogix-gpu-virtualization.html#]high-end[/URL] 3D graphics functionality and performance of a discrete GPU,” said Offir Remez, LucidLogix president and founder. “Now it is possible to experience a no-guilt, no-compromise PC entertainment experience, and save on energy at the same time.”"
In the works. But it will be small.
