Pic of bord and story

No Nividia drivers yet

HYRA allaows the use of boath Radion and Nvidia on the some board :punk:

Although it's cool to see something like this I think I'd stick with crossfire or sli and not two cards from two different venders.

I could see only a handle full of people really wanting or needing this as most people prefer to stay with one brand or another as it 'typically' does not improve your system going cross branding

It is better because each GPU has objects to draw, instead of frames or portion of the screen. This reduces the duplication of processes and data in memory to share objects between GPUs.

Like I said before, I only think this chip is useful for something like when people who get another GPU as a gift, and it's a different brand. Would much rather stick to Crossfire or SLI.

I donno, I would have to see statistics comparing the two. I personally think if you take the $200 dollar overhead on that board, and put it into better video cards you would get better results. It is cool in theory, but probably doesn't deliever for the cost.

I don't like intel and the big bang motherboard was only for intel, so it ruled that option out for me.

Yeah for Christmas, my parents gave me a ATI video card, and my Girlfriend gave me a Nvidia card. I couldn't return them for some reason. They have done that for the last several years now, so I'll plan ahead this year and get a big bang motherboard. :dots:

This board has been known for ages, and it's even been tested. In general, performance using the Hydra chip was actually worse than a single card. Unless this technology matures significantly to actually provide a benefit, it's basically a complete waste.
