Like most retail Z77 boards, a Lucid Virtu MVP license is included in the package, allowing for the IGP to work in tandem with discreet GPU for Intel Quick Sync and energy saving. HyperFormance (currently largely only useful as a benchmark cheat until the application support list is improved) and Virtual Vsync (keeps in-game Vsync without FPS drop) are its other features.
