Hey I ran into a driver called lucid virtu can someone give me the run down on exactly what this is and what I'd use it for?

It helps with gaming, video encoding, etc. It teams your CPU Graphics with your dedicated GPU (670 FTW) to make things run faster & smoother. It really helps with video encoding. It also boosts Benchmark scores..

Switchable Graphics

Well there are a few reasons. The main benefit from this ‘Switchable Graphics’ feature, is that you can power down your graphics card when running less GPU-intensive 2D tasks like web browsing, watching video and general purpose productivity tasks, but then engage the discrete card when you need it, i.e. when cranking up your favorite 3D games.

One of the more obvious benefits from ‘Switchable Graphics’ is that today’s discrete graphics cards tend to consume a lot of power, adding significant wattage to your PC’s overall power consumption even while idling. Being able to switch off the discrete card when it wasn’t needed offers a tangible reduction in power consumption, and perhaps most significantly, a tidy reduction of your electricity bills too.

Other benefits included having access to Intel Quick Sync technology, a popular feature that discrete graphics card users would typically have to abandon, as Intel’s Quick Sync is a processor-bound feature that required you to use Intel’s processor graphics. With Lucid Virtu’s Switchable Graphics feature you could essentially have your cake and eat it too; want super fast video encoding thanks to Intel Quick Sync? No problem, select processor graphics. Want great 3D performance for your latest DX11 games? Switch to that monster card you paid all those dollars for…

Now you’re probably saying that this is old news, but there is a new feature in MVP that gives you control over whether to use processor graphics or the discrete GPU for each application. Here’s a peak at what it looks like.

But wait, there’s more to come..

However, since the Z68 launch, I’ve come to the conclusion that Lucid’s first iteration of their Graphics Virtualization software, Lucid Virtu, was actually just the beginning. Here was something that would grow, gathering momentum to quickly become a ‘must have’ feature for DIY PC builders and PC gamers. Having recently spent some time with the good people from Lucid, I’m now more excited than ever.

Here at GIGABYTE we’ve been working with Lucid to bring the latest Virtu MVP technology to our new 7 series motherboards. Trust me when I say that this is going to be popular bundle, and that’s because while Lucid Virtu MVP has the same switchable graphics feature that I describe above, they’ve also added new technologies that make it truly a game-changing feature (excuse the pun).

Virtual Vsync

If you’re using a powerful graphics card you may find that you’re getting some amazing frame rates at times, especially if you’re playing slightly older 3D games - many DX9 titles like Left4Dead and Portal 2 for example are still very popular. Today’s midrange and enthusiast graphics cards can rip through those games with blistering frame rates.

However, one problem that will arise with really high frame rates is that your monitor will almost always be limited to a refresh rate of around 60 Hz (can be equated to 60 frames per sec/FPS). Now if your game is running at 90FPS or more, this frame rate mismatch can result in a phenomenon known as ‘Tearing’. Check out the door frame and mirrors in the image below. You’ll see how tearing can look within a game. Not exactly the best graphical experience.

Some people say it reduces input lag, and artificially inflates your 3dmark scores, but it's not allowed according to HWBOT rules I think.

It uses the igpu to assist in rendering frames you won't see or something, you get higher fps but you actually don't see but feel a difference basically. I don't think it's worth the hassle really.

Wow! great answers from both of you, I know ivanlabrie said it's not worth the hassle but I'm quite interested in it. Now is this something I'd have to keep changing settings or is this a plug in play thing?

I guess once you configure it properly it works, but not sure...It would be cool for fps games I guess, and for having ridiculous amounts of fps in older titles for the heck of it.

So far I haven't found any concrete evidence that this board supports it, and it's not listed as supported on Xen's wiki.

Also I know the Asrock Extreme6 supports vt-d.....but from what I understand it isn't as capable of a board.
VT-d is not supported by K series processors. It is not a motherboard feature.

oh? what Voltage are you at for 4.4? I'm getting 4.5 @1.31V I'm pretty sure my chip isn't really good.
