MAINGEAR Boosts Mobile Gaming with Lucid Virtu MVP Software

Posted Jan 18, 2013 @ 2:33 CST

MAINGEAR, an award-winning PC system builder offering custom desktops, notebooks, and workstations is improving mobile gaming on the NOMAD series of custom gaming laptops with Lucid's Virtu MVP Mobile software that boosts gaming performance 30 percent and higher.


Lucid Virtu MVP Mobile is the only GPU virtualization software that balances power consumption and system performance by dynamically assigning and rendering media tasks to the best available graphics resource with either an integrated or discrete GPU. The software intelligently assigns tasks in real time to the best available graphics resource based on performance, power and features considerations, with no need for additional hardware.




"MAINGEAR Nomad series laptops with Lucid Virtu MVP Mobile technology will help give gamers a competitive edge by providing a smoother and more immersive gaming experience," said Wallace Santos, Founder and CEO of MAINGEAR Computers. "By improving GPU efficiency, eliminating tearing and increasing response time, we determined that Virtu MVP Mobile is a must for serious gamers on the go."


First person shooters and other games where every second counts will benefit from the combination of Lucid Virtu MVP Mobile Virtual Vsync and Hyperformance features. Virtual Vsync allows gamers to enjoy crisp, high quality images with no tearing, while maintaining high frame rates. This is up to 250 percent higher than standard Vsync frame rates, which are capped at 60 FPS (frames per second). The Lucid Hyperformance technology eliminates redundant rendering tasks by predicting potential synchronization issues between the integrated and discrete GPUs, resulting in improved keyboard and mouse responsiveness. Better game control is indicated by up to 30% more FPS than relying on GPU and CPU performance alone.


"We are honored by MAINGEAR's choice to offer Lucid Virtu MVP Mobile software to the discerning gaming community," said Offir Remez, president of LucidLogix. "Gamers have high technology standards and MVP software provides that additional playability they crave."


MAINGEAR will offer Lucid Virtu MVP Mobile software as an option on all new Nomad series laptops. All of MAINGEAR products boast lifetime labor and phone support with a one to three year hardware warranty. Learn more about MAINGEAR's Nomad series laptops at:
