IDF2012: LucidLogix performs a demonstration DynamiX

IDF2012: LucidLogix performs a demonstration DynamiX

Several months ago we learned that (Intel-sponsored enterprise) is developing a utility that promises to increase the graphics performance of gaming in HD Graphics second generation (Sandy Bridge IGP Carlow) and higher utilities to which called DynamiX .

Although LucidLogix has not yet revealed the release date of DynamiX, gave a demonstration of their usefulness during the Developer Forum 2012 event (IDF2012). The version shown was 1.0.101.23710 Beta and was run on a Dell with Intel HD Graphics integrated graphics.

The game was tested at a resolution of 1366 x 768, where the IGP only offered 9 frames per second, but after enabling DynamiX, performance skyrocketed offering 30 frames per second, 233% higher performance of its original configuration.

But as we all know, there is no software to magically increase the performance of any chip, and DynamiX works based on profiles for games, intercepting API calls to DirectX 9/10 (currently does not work with DirectX 11), dismissing calls redundant and replacing some requests by other “more optimized” (removing some filters), resulting in significantly lower visual quality, but much better performance.

If you ask me, I prefer to play lower quality graphics, which bring myself to play 9 FPS, so I presume that many users with Intel IGPs could be attracted by this utility.
