LucidLogix, a developer of various hardware and software graphics performance boosting solutions, has unleashed a program which can substantially boost performance of latest games on systems with low-end or integrated graphics sub-systems.

The majority of modern first person shooter (FPS), adventure and role-playing games (RPGs) are designed for systems that employ high-performance discrete graphics processing units and are not supposed to be run on personal computers with integrated graphics. The modern trend, however, are slim notebooks with integrated or low-end graphics sub-systems, which are sometimes used for gaming and will be used more frequently as their popularization grows. The new LucidLogix DynamiX software is designed to optimize rendering process and at the cost of some potential quality degradation to boost performance of the latest video games on notebooks and ultrabooks.

“With DynamiX, a single embedded GPU is all you will need to enjoy your favorite high-performance titles on most new notebooks without reducing display resolution or minimizing game performance settings,” said Offir Remez, Lucid co-founder and president.

At present the DynamiX is available as a free trial beta and supports only The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim title. DynamiX is an implementation of real-time dynamic resolution technique that is designed to enable a tunable minimum performance level to increase the playability of a game by dynamically changing the render target resolution of objects in real time, without the need of the game developer to design it in advance. All informative elements , such as HUDs, texts, menus and maps remain unchanged and presented in full resolution. Essentially, DynamiX tweaks games using methods unauthorized by developers to make them run faster on low-end hardware. Since DynamiX analyzes scenes dynamically, it should spend a lot of CPU resources.

Since Lucid is a company that is financed by Intel Capital, it is pretty explainable why does the company unveils a solution like DynamiX just ahead of Intel-based ultrabooks powered by Ivy Bridge microprocessors. It is highly likely that at least some of those notebooks will feature the software pre-installed in order to demonstrate higher performance in modern video games.

LucidLogix DynamiX is available at the company's web-site.
