BETTER GAMING THAN GETTING SLI OR CROSSFIRE !!!

DESCRIPTION OF TECHNOLOGY (simplified, an example):

The GRAPHICS ACCELERATOR (GPU) is capable of pumping out "x" megapixels each second. Lets say it translates into 20 frames per second. This is enough to enjoy the high resolution beauty of Skyrim, but this is too slow for combat. So instead - during combat - we draw 3 times as many frames per second, each frame having 1/3 of the pixels - so you end up having the same pixel rate, while ACHIEVING A MUCH BETTER GAMING PERFORMANCE.

HiAlgoBoost features:

* Significantly improves responsiveness and gameplay experience.
* Significantly reduces in-game loading times.
* Increases framerate during character motion by momentarily reducing the resolution.

Now you can:

1) Play Skyrim smoothly with higher settings, with more effects and mods.
2) Play Skyrim on a laptop with high-end GPU in power-save mode, extending the battery life and preventing GPU overheating and fan activation.
3) Play Skyrim on a laptop with low-end GPU (e.g. Ultrabooks/MacBook Air etc).

Guys!
I need your feedback! Really! Download, try and comment! I am thinking of doing MW3 next...

Limitations:
You tell me...

Many thanks to DonutAgeOrigins and Waylander1978 for the list of mods that seem to be supported (see below).

HiAlgoBoost dynamically modifies internal rendering resolution in order to increase frame rate, and utilizes various additional approaches to make the game more responsive and smoothly controllable. It does not affect game contents.
