Aros Magic’s MagiXcan Makes Computers Run Many Times Faster

Share Article

Aros Magic’s magiXcan speeds up computers by decoding digital media extremely fast using novel parallel processing technology. It is showcased in Aros Magic Viewer 3.0, making it the world’s fastest photo viewer by an order of magnitude.



This can lead to faster-running and more energy-efficient computers, in direct proportion to the number of cores available

Aros Magic announced the release of its magiXcan™ parallel processing technology, which enables the fastest and most energy-efficient way of consuming digital media ever conceived.

“I invented magiXcan because photos taken on a typical digital camera were taking a long time to load, even on a high-end quad-core computer. It was quite frustrating. So I took on, and solved, the hitherto intractable problem of decoding images really fast by making use of all the cores in a modern CPU,” said Arun Sagar, founder of Aros Magic. “Having done that, I realized that the same techniques can be used to speed up most digital media decoding tasks that we do on our computers. This can lead to faster-running and more energy-efficient computers, in direct proportion to the number of cores available.”

The free Aros Magic Viewer 3.0 beta (for Windows) showcases the application of the patent-pending magiXcan technology to the fast processing of images in the JPEG format—the most widely-used file-format for photographs by far—as magiXcan’s first licensee, and is available for immediate download from Besides its high speed, Aros Magic Viewer 3.0 has many other useful features as well, including direct connectivity to many online services. This enables quick and convenient access to a wide variety of photo-enabled websites like Google image search, Facebook/Twitter multi-file updates, etc.

To extend the scope of magiXcan so that it can cover a wide variety media formats and operating systems—thereby fulfilling the technology’s potential for creating much faster and more energy-efficient computers—Aros Magic is also running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo entitled “magiXcan: Imagine computers 10X faster. 100X? More!” Visit for more details about magiXcan and its development plans.

Founded in 1996, Aros Magic offers a range of fast, beautiful, and fun software driven by the desire to build magical technologies that will make their users extremely happy. ♥ → ∞. This software is available on
