As much as I'd like to see Lucid's tech proliferate, one hundred sixty Washington's for an AMD 870 board is mighty steep, and that's hitting 890FX territory. The P55 also looks a little slim. Are people that want cross-brand, multi-gpu configurations really going to settle for gussied up budget boards?

Actually, the problem was that they scaled, but they scaled downwards instead of upwards. Performance with mixed cards was actually worse than with a single card.

Any consumer based product that writes "Millitary Classed" across its components, makes me want to bang my head against the wall.

stop saying some BS stuff... The hydra chips work fine, not as good a 2 same card but still better than a single card. The problem is just that it's still does not really support dedicated Physix support for a ATI/Nvidia mix.
