    Sounds like a waste of cash to me, smacks of a "good on paper" type idea. Bit like Lucid Logics MVP software a few years back that turned out to be useless.

    @Jimbob - Hey, I was one of the two people who used Lucid Logics MVP software. It was worth it for the extra 2FPS I got using my GPU in conjunction with my onboard graphics - and for the three games that supported it - and well worth all the BSODs I got every time I used it :p

    @loftie - Joking aside, I really wanted Lucid Virtu MVP to work, but the effort needed to get the right graphics drivers, and find compatible games (not forgetting the odd BSOD I got when it was installed), meant the reality (in my case) didn't match its potential. The smart Vsync, in particular, sounded like a really good idea, if I could have just got it to work. Hopefully the HiAlgo system in the article, avoids the same pitfalls

    Sounds like it's another addition for the VR future, after that recent 'higher resolution where you look' trick, which incidentally was originally used in professional flight simulators for the military, so that trick at least has a sound history.
