LucidLogix Releases Virtu GPU Virtualization Software to Motherboard Manufacturers
The pioneer of multi-vendor/multi-GPU graphic solutions, LucidLogix today announced it has released Virtu GPU virtualization software for 2nd Generation Intel Core processor platforms to global motherboard manufacturers.
With this technology, next-generation PCs will dynamically balance the advanced power-efficient, built-in media features of Intel Core processor graphics with the high-end, DirectX 11 3D, anti-aliasing and performance features of discrete GPUs, while significantly reducing the power drain of traditional entertainment desktops. Ultimately, the consumer is assured optimal simultaneous performance in 3D gaming and video functions like transcoding and HD playback without the need to swap video cable connections between GPUs.
"A simple software solution, Virtu is a cost-efficient technology with big rewards," said Offir Remez, LucidLogix president and founder. "Virtu solves both usability and power consumption issues for motherboard consumers and makes it easy for an OEM to build systems that have no-compromise video and 3D graphics capabilities."
Lucid GPU virtualization software assigns tasks in real time to the best available graphics resource based on power, performance and features considerations, with no need for additional hardware. If graphics power is needed for applications like 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.
Designed for entry-level through mainstream PCs equipped with 2nd Generation Intel Core processors and NVIDIA or AMD 3D GPUs, Virtu software automatically adjusts the performance, thermal and feature allocation based on the requirements of individual applications. The only system requirement is to always connect the display screen directly to the motherboard's built-in display output (DVI, HDMI, etc).
"With Lucid's Virtu, PC gamers who require discrete graphics for high-resolution gaming can easily get the amazing built-in visual capabilities of 2nd Generation Intel Core processors, including Intel Quick Sync Video and Intel Insider," said Zane Ball, General Manager of Desktop Platforms.
