looks interesting, should be pretty sweet if and when it does come out.
though for clarification on the quote above:
The Lucid Hydra chip, as mentioned before should enable the use of 2
different video cards together on the same motherboard.
We have been told in the past that there will be different versions of the
chip - one will enable the usage of video cards like HD4870 along with a
HD4650 for example , another version will enable the usage of NVIDIA based
video cards together - like a GTX260 together with 9600GT for example,
and of course one version will enable a mix of video cards -ATI video card
together with a Nvidia video card on the same motherboard.
The Hydra chip is responsible for the Balance and link between the different
video cards.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
