Astro HQ, the company behind Astropad and Luna Display is today announcing an update to its Liquid video engine that offers up to 4x better GPU performance and is 2x more responsive for an ultra-low latency experience with iPad.

In the latest version, LIQUID 3.0, we focused on reducing latency and optimizing GPU performance across all of our products. This update is available in Luna Display 3.0, Astropad Studio 3.0, and Astropad Standard 3.0.
The big GPU and response performance gains will be very welcome by Astropad and Luna Display users. In the iPad as a second display market, this could give Astro HQ a leg up on the competition if it delivers on the claimed performance.
