The Tech Report sat down with Offir Remez from Lucid to talk about their horribly named new product, HyperFormance. Don't dismiss the actual technology because of the name however, instead think of it as Smarter V-Sync for your games. This is intended to help with the tearing that can be present as frames are dropped by the video card trying to match the 60Hz refresh rate of an LCD monitor. This is rather important when you consider the attention reviewers are now paying to those tears and dropped frames as a better way of measuring the in game performance of various GPUs. Read on to learn about HyperFormance as well as Lucid's other recent products.
"Lucid's new 'HyperFormance' tech may have an unfortunate name, but it still has the potential to change the way we think about GPU performance by delivering a vastly improved gaming experience through a single intelligent software algorithm."
