LucidLogix shows software speed up for GPUs
January 13, 2012 // Peter Clarke
Multicore graphics firm LucidLogix Technologies Ltd., has announced the existence of XLR8, which is virtualization software designed to improve the performance of graphics processing units (GPUs).
The company claims that the GPU virtualization software can improve the graphical response performance, visual quality and battery efficiency of mobile devices including smartphones, tablet and notebook computers by up to 200 percent.
LucidLogix (Kfar Netter, Israel) said it has taken its Virtu MVP virtualization software and applied it to single, embedded graphics processors such as AMD Fusion, ARM Mali, Intel Ivy Bridge and Nvidia Tegra.
XLR8 increases CPU frame generation while minimizing redundant rendering tasks, providing maximum input responsiveness, sometimes as high as a 200 percent improvement, the company said. The core technology behind XLR8 uses multi-threading, task detection and redundant task removal processes that are also sensitive to power consumption, the company added.
"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 LucidLogix, in a statement. "We believe the applications for XLR8 software could be endless. If it's got a GPU, we can improve the end user experience."
XLR8 is being demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada and tested by partners, LucidLogix said.
