LucidLogix does GPU virtualization

Virtualization can improve performance by up to 200 percent, the company claims.

Israeli graphics company LucidLogix is showing off its GPU virtualization software XLR8 at CES this week.

The software is aimed at improving the visual experience as well as the battery life and has been used in conjunction with graphics hardware including single, embedded graphics processors like AMD Fusion, ARM Mali, Intel Ivy Bridge and NVIDIA Tegra.

“Most PC graphics challenges are magnified when it comes to embedded GPUs, like visual tearing and artifacts, pipeline inefficiencies and power management,” said Offir Remez, president of Lucid. “Moreover, most hit PC games have limited playability on those platforms, so it was natural for us to introduce our core technology and know-how to the world of mobile devices. We believe the applications for XLR8 software could be endless. If it’s got a GPU, we can improve the end user experience.”

The core technology behind XLR8 uses unique multi-threading, task detection and redundant task removal processes that are also sensitive to battery/power draw.

The software has not yet been released, but according to the press release from the company the software is currently in the labs of major partners for compatibility testing.S|A
