Lucid Virtu MVP in Intel 7-series to offer improved gaming performance
| by Roydon Cerejo |
Lucid Logix first came into the limelight when they launched the Hydra Engine, which debuted on the MSI Big Bang Fusion motherboard. What this allowed enthusiasts to do is marry the performance of an Nvidia and AMD (ATI back then) graphics card in a dual-GPU setup. This wasn’t possible before, although every gamer longed for such a solution. Sadly, this fizzled off due to poor driver support, game support and too many issues, which hampered performance, rather than boosting it. Fast forward to 2011 and we witnessed Lucid’s other attempt with the Intel’s Z68 chipset, which fared a lot better. Here, the idea was to be able to use Intel’s onboard GPU as well as the discrete card as and when needed and this decision was made by Lucid’s new Virtu software. For Intel’s upcoming 7-series Ivy Bridge chipsets, however, Lucid plan on taking this idea one step further that will actually affect the game's performance and in a good way.
Be in control!
