LucidLogix® (Lucid), a company headquartered in Israel, announced the first in its new series of power efficiency software products for smartphones, tablets and other Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable devices. Dubbed GameXtend™, the power-aware software increases mobile play time when using 2D and 3D games.
Internal testings using top Google Play Games with the Android 4.3-powered Galaxy S4 show that GameXtend enabled the smartphone to run games with up to two to three additional hours of play time from a single charge.
According to LucidLogix, GameXtend uses state-of-the-art algorithms to reduce power draw in real time to extend play time and reduce app interruption. It also mitigates other typical battery management functions like screen brightness and voltage utilization, thereby keeping the device cool and comfortable.The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 marks Lucid's first handset design win where GameXtend is integrated to maximize the mobile experience.
“Power management continues to be an important factor when it comes to consumer device satisfaction,” said Hyung-Moon Noh, vice president of Samsung Technology Alliance Group. “Technologies such as Lucid’s GameXtend software allow us to leverage the fastest processors with the high-resolution screens, while insuring a fully-immersive, seamless and uninterrupted smartphone experience.
GameXtend is a fusion of newly-developed, patent-pending technologies combined with select existing patented Lucid notebook and desktop PC software technologies that can be found in tens of millions of systems today. The software is designed with mobile-specific ARM and Android architectural support and is title-agnostic.
GameXtend has been tested to work with hundreds of popular 2D, 3D and casual games, and is available for integration into Android devices.
