This is the first AMD motherboard supporting Lucid Virtu Universal MVP technology in the world. It allows gamers to take advantage of this new technique and enjoy the amazing performance boost from “HyperFormance” and “Virtual Vsync”.
Major features include :
1.HyperFormance: A new technology which combines integrated and discrete graphics for uncompromised performance and improves gaming frame rates 30-70%. A special highlight here is that HyperFormance is also supported with both ATI and NVIDIA graphics cards.
Taking an NVIDIA GTX560 graphics card for testing, when enabling Virtu HyperFormance in ASRock A75 Pro4/MVP motherboard, the graphics scores increase significantly. Compared to the integrated VGA and discrete VGA, it provides up to a 41.12% performance boost in 3DMark 11 (Extreme mode) test. HyperFormance gives a pretty good showing in performance terms, demonstrating a huge improvement in graphics capabilities.
2.Virtual Vsync: A technology designed to solve the ever lasting debate between quality and performance. Bring GPU performance from 60 FPS Vsync limit back to its maximum while keeping Vsync image quality and no tearing.
3.Switchable Graphics: Dynamically assigns tasks to be the best graphics resource regardless of physical cable connections.
The soon-to-be-released A75 Pro4/MVP motherboard may not be the best of A75 APU motherboards around but it just goes to show that you don’t need the most expensive board to get better gaming performance. You can visit ASRock at CeBIT 2012 in Hall 17, C32.
