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.

I don't have two graphics cards...so couldn't try it. But I think if useless. I've got a 7850 card...when I'm on the win7 desktop the fan stops and power goes down to 1-2W. The new AMD ZeroCore Power technology is working really good. Don't know if Nvidia has a similar thing in their latest line of products

I have Virtu MVP running, it does bump up performance a bit. Checked 3dmark 11 scores with and without it. There are some improvements but not really much to be that noticeable to naked eye but scores say performance is better with Virtu Lucid.

However, there's something annoying about Virtu MVP. Sometimes it won't run normally during startup. I think it's a bug. It causes abnormally high CPU usage. Checked the task manager and says it's Virtu MVP Control Panel doing the activity. Does anybody here have the same experience?

yeah, i think so too. The performance increase a little but it's not as much as we need.

yeah it does improve performance. tried it in dirt3 and BF3.. it dirt3 in particular, improvement was relatively obvious wherein pixelation was reduced.

the lucid GPU do improve the performance, but a little, many review has show that. So if u don't have sandy bridge CPU, don't care about it

I have an Asus Z68 motherboard and it supports Lucid Virtue. I tried enabling it and it caused severe lag in games. It's not worth using.
