[TT] Lucid Virtu MVP (HyperFormance) Tested with ASRock Z77 Extreme6 and Intel Ivy Bridge

Another issue is that I've never had to reboot my system more times for testing than I have in the two days it took to test this. It's reminiscent a bit like in the early days of SLI and CrossFire and their profiles. It just feels like it's not all there yet.

Rumor has it that NVIDIA are also going to put a stop to the technology being able to work in future driver releases. The thing is, based on 3DMark 11 scores, you could see how all of a sudden cheaper and last generation video cards could make new more expensive cards seem like a waste of money. If you really examine it, though, there's more to it, in the times we need the extra performance, it just doesn't exist. The problem is, any half decent marketing company can run with certain numbers and make the technology sound amazing. Going from 100 FPS to 150 FPS, though, doesn't help gamers. It does sound impressive, though, and that can be an issue for both AMD and NVIDIA.

Ah Lucid..Soo much potential so little experience. But they are growing more and more.

so Nvidia is looking to break this already.. WTH. mad.gif

To summarize: this version of Lucid tech aims to (pair) the Integrated Processor GPU's with discrete GPU's to add more processing power kinda like using SLI to link your intel built in GPU and your GTX680

I am wondering what real world performance would be like, but it looks like gains upto 40% in some cases can be had.- for benchmarking at least.

Hyperformance works by dropping the frames that won't be displayed on the monitor, essentially you put less load on your graphics card by making it render only the frames that will be shown. It's meant to work in conjunction with their vsync-implementation to reduce inputlag, but I have my doubts if it's viable for daily use now.

It is by no means a magic way to make the Intel-GPU work in an asymmetric multiGPU-envirnoment giving extra performance. Your games may feel faster in response times, but you won't get higher framerate.

I thought Lucid could be used with any 2 graphics cores? Doesn't it work much better with 2 discrete cards? Like a gt 430 and say gtx 460, or even a gtx 550 ti and 570 etc. etc.

Where are the validated arguments? actual performance and first hand experience from seasoned gaming veterans .

I want testing! not disappointed news reading perfectionist/snobs .yeah.......

so basically if your FPS are lower than your monitor refresh rate , MVP wont help, you will actually loose some fps.

It seems that "HyperFormance" helps remove stuff like your CPU bottleneck. The issue is, at 2560 x 1600 under really intensive games, there is no CPU bottleneck - it's all a VGA bottleneck.

but this is interesting, hyperformance might help alot for CPU bound game like WoW or SC2.

I am much more interested in virtual sync ... i really really hope this can remove screen tearing at very high FPS on 60hz monitor.

If its like their other past technologies then it will never work as intended, right now the only thing that still appeals me is the switchable graphics part. It will work perfectly for my htpc plans, ASrock Z77E-ITX + i3 3225 (dual core, 3.3ghz, HT, HD4000!) + my current rig GPU gtx 470, so for browsing and HD playback it will use the iGPU and when launch a game it then uses the 470, now i only need to find the smaller itx case that can house all that + a 550w psu
