Innovative software product increases up to 35% power efficiency, extending the mobile experience from a single battery charge
Netanya, Israel, March 11, 2014 — Lucidlogix® (Lucid), pioneers in multi GPU virtualization technologies, today announced that GameXtend™, the innovative software solution of Lucid’s PowerXtend Suite that extends mobile play time for popular 2D/3D and casual games is integrated with the newly released Samsung Galaxy S5. GameXtend™ lengthens play time up to 35%, providing increased power capacity and longer battery life, boosting the overall mobile experience. Already popular with avid gamers worldwide, Lucid’s flagship GameXtend™ product was successfully integrated into the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Tab10.1 released last year.
Optimized for the Samsung Galaxy S5, the newest addition to the industry leading Samsung Galaxy S line, GameXtend™ saves 35% in battery power, enabling a standard Android device to run games with up to 2-3 additional hours of play time from a single charge. A fusion of newly-developed, patent-pending technologies, combined with select existing patented Lucid notebook and desktop PC software technologies, GameXtend™ can be found in tens of millions of devices today.
“Today’s mobile devices are all about power, speed and efficiency,” said Hyung-Moon No, Vice President of Technology Alliance Group, Samsung Electronics IT & Mobile Division. “With GameXtend™ integrated into our Galaxy S5, we are committed to deliver a truly superior mobile user experience.”
Title-agnostic and designed with mobile-specific ARM and Android architectural support, GameXtend™ deploys state-of-the-art algorithms to reduce power draw in real time to extend play time and reduce app interruption. Further, GameXtend™ mitigates other typical battery management functions, such as screen brightness and voltage utilization, which, as a result, keeps the device cool and comfortable.
“We are very proud of our growing partnership with Samsung and to continue delivering our innovative software products,” comments Offir Remez, Founder & VP Business Development, Lucid. “Samsung closely partnered with us in the product development phase, helping us to position our offering across the board.”
