We first got the chance to check out the latest in Lucid technology a couple of weeks back at a motherboard manufacturers HQ. For a lot of us Lucid is a bit of a dirty word that reminds us of this almost useless kind of technology that let us combine NVIDIA and AMD video cards together for added performance.

 

It never really kicked off for the most part and we haven't heard heaps about them for a little bit. Lucid Virtu MVP, though, is the latest technology from the company and it's something we're starting to see motherboard manufacturers promote. Today we're going to check out what it's about while also see what it does on the performance side of things.

 

Because there's no real formula to what we're doing today the first thing we're going to do is take a look at the motherboard we're going to be using in the article today. In this case it's the ASRock Z77 Extreme6 which we'll look at in full detail a little later on.

 

Once we've done that we'll then take the time to check out the new Lucid Virtu MVP software and cover the main technology we're looking at today; HyperFormance. Once we've done that we'll quickly go over our test machine before we have a look at a smaller line up of games to see what HyperFormance can bring to the table.

 

There's not much more that really needs to be said, I think we're pretty safe to take a quick look at the ASRock Z77 Extreme6 before we move on. So, let's get into it and see just what Lucid and ASRock is bringing to the table today.
