We've already seen a lot of examples of what LucidLogix has managed to do with its Virtu software, but its latest software named XLR8 has us scratching our heads. The software is targeting the various GPUs you'd find inside ARM processors, as well as integrated graphics in AMD and Intel processors and is not only said to be boosting the performance, but also lower the power usage of said GPUs.

According to the press release, XLR8 is compatible with AMD's Fusion APUs, ARM's Mali GPUs, Intel's HD4000 and HD2500 IGPs in the upcoming Ivy Bridge processors and Nvidia's various Tegra models. The idea here is that Lucid's new software will optimize the system to help prevent things like tearing and artefacts, but it's also meant to improve power efficiency and help improve playability of games.

Lucid's president Offir Remez went as far as saying "If it's got a GPU, we can improve the end user experience" which is quite a cocky statement. The company claims that XLR8 can improve certain configurations by as much as 200 percent in terms of performance by increasing GPU frame generation while preventing the GPU from performing redundant rendering tasks. It all sounds great, but as we all know, the proof is in the pudding and Lucid has as yet to offer the software for testing by third parties. It will be interesting to see if XLR8 lives up to Lucid's claims, but for now, we'll remain sceptical.
