Thumbs up Lucid Virtue MVP/ Hybrid Crossfire article?

I've done some internet searching and found bits and articles about performance gains/loss (etc) when using the lucid Virtue software and/or Hybrid crossfire. However, i don't find them to be as in depth and as quality made as many of the HWC reviews.

I realize that both of these features aren't necessarily "important" nor are they a necessity for any machine. However, it does interest me and I'm sure their are others like myself whom are curious (and would appreciate a well organized and informative HWC review).

God, I'd love to have a version of Lucid that's stable enough to do this. The last time I tried (on a Z77), the resulting hours of frustration made me vow not to look at it again for at least a year. I'm now at 9 months....so you may have to wait a bit longer.

I know they've recently released a new version (i think), but awesome: Looking forward to it.

To be fair, it is a year old. Nothing worth testing for haswell at the moment.
