Brilliantly designed for gaming, Virtu Universal MVP™ switchable graphics software assigns tasks dynamically to the best graphics resource and features two exciting techniques – HyperFormance™ and Virtual Vsync™.


1. HyperFormance™ - Optimized Game Responsiveness :
Game responsiveness is all about how fast your eye → brain → mouse click → game response behaves. When interacting with your computer, the responsiveness is a key factor to your productivity and overall systems experience. When it comes to playing games, especially fast moving ones like First Person Shooters, responsiveness becomes critical for both mastering the game and enjoying and immersive experience.

HyperFormance intelligently removes redundant rendering tasks within the graphics pipeline, the CPU-GPU-Display system.


• Boosts responsiveness and FPS of any game
• Improves gaming frame rates 30-70%
• Increases Vsync frame rates - 120 FPS+
• Sharpens visual quality without tearing
• Works seamlessly with hundreds of games



2. Virtual Vsync™ - Resolve the everlasting debate between quality and performance :
Lucid's Virtual Vsync technology takes visual quality and performance to the next level. A proprietary solution for Virtu Universal and Virtu MVP, Virtual Vsync enables games to run at any FPS, with no image tearing, stuttering, lags and latency artifacts.

• Enhanced performance - when system has dGPU and iGPU
• Unlimited frame rates - beyond traditional in-game Vsync
• Flawless visual quality without tearing
• Up to 250% better responsiveness vs. standard Vsync


3. Switchable Graphics :
Dynamically assigns tasks to the best graphics resource regardless of physical cable connections.

* LucidLogix Virtu MVP is only supported under Windows® 7 or Windows® 8.
