    Make sure the onboard GPU is enabled in BIOS and download/install latest Intel HD Drivers.

    Nvidia 296.10 + latest Intel Graphics (from Windows update) SLI broken. Only iGPU and the second video card are working.

    Edit:
    From VIRTU Universal MVP - Operation Manual

    Chapter 3

    Limitations

    3.1 i-mode
    GPU vendor specific multi GPU acceleration features such as SLI and CrossFire are
    not available in i-mode due to GPU vendor limitations.

    3.2 d-mode
    In d-mode SLI and CrossFire are available. Media features can be virtualized by
    Virtu Universal MVP to integrated GPU.
    Virtual Vsync and HyperFormance features are not available when SLI or CrossFire
    is enabled

    Thank you for your response. Program "Your Uninstaller PRO" has helped me (in super mode). And where can I find License code for Virtu MVP? (or crack:))

    If you want to get it just use the "gpuEnumerator.dll" from Virtu version...

    Some screens with MVP on

    Battlefield 3 without Virtu MVP

    Battlefield 3 with VSync only

    Battlefield 3 with Hyper/Vsync ON

    Hyper mode ONLY :

    It seems activate Hyper only as same effect as VSync and Hyper both ON
    Same FPS and FPS doesn't block at 60FPS.

    We can say that it works but activating VSync or Hyper mode on Battlefield 3 automaticaly drops FPS down in a common situation...

    All OFF :

    Hyper mode ON (with or w/o Benchmark VSync ON) :

    Hyper mode bypass Vsync in Unigine again, I guess it does it for every applications. So is Vsync mode useless ?

    Another game : FIFA 11 with ATI fix

    I first started with ATI fix in settings, it lowers FPS so we can check if the Hyper mode will be usefull.
    One thing to know : FIFA 11 is not fully compatible with Hyper mode.

    All OFF :

    VSync ONLY :

    Hyper mode ONLY :

    It seems to work much more on FIFA 11 and without ATI fix.

    I can't even launch BF3 when Virtu is active.
    I see that the process (bf3.exe) is running but it gets stuck at some point and stops loading without even showing on taskbar.

    Is the Directx level restricted by the Directx level of the integrated GPU or the discrete GPU? if its limited by the integrated GPU wouldn't that mean currently no Directx 11 (and future 11.1), and with Ivy Bridge no future Directx 11.1?

    does anyone know for sure if this is going to be supported to all the boards which have Lucid Virtu. On the website it indicates it will be only supported to the new z77 chipset. This is totally unfair if this is the case. I have a asrockZ68 Extreme7 Gen3.

    Just be aware that the reason your benchmark scores are going up is not because you are rendering frames faster, but because Virtu is throwing out frames but telling the frame counter that they were rendered. It is designed as a utility to help with tearing and input lag, not to improve performance.

    It is certainly an interesting tool, I might check it out myself, but it pretty much invalidates any kind of benchmark you run while using it.

    here's a nice in depth explanation :
