Hey all


I have a thing called Lucid Virtu MVP 2.0 and have no idea what it is i only knew i had this after benchmarking fire strike on 3D Mark and it said my result is invalid because of Lucid Virtu MVP is not configured correctly.

I opened the application and this is what i says :
'Wrong GPU configuration. Please check your hardware/drivers.
Disabling Virtu MVP 2.0, and exiting.'

Any help is appreciated

It basically turns off your GPU when it is not needed, to save power..But you have gotta have your monitor connected to the motherboards display sockets to use this mode... Some can't even use this mode as they don't have any

It also helps the GPU in games (and benchmarks) to improve your performance, monitor/s connected to the decided GPU.

If you want to use it, make sure it is enabled in the Bios, next install the latest intel IGP drivers, then the GPUs finally you can install Virtu.

From when I was using it, even when I setup it up correctly, it was just a pain in the butt..Some games would not change graphics processor meaning they just would not run. I landed up disabling it...but this was a while back, I really need to try it again.

You have to open up the MVP control panel, then turn on GPU visualization make sure that 3dmark is set to the right tick I don't remember which is the "performance mode"

Don't recommend it. Tested with it extensively with a different MSI mobo, and it worked but caused several blue screens. Uninstalled Virtu = no more blue screens.

I'm sure it must work okay for some, but it's buggy.
