Default Re: Hydra and me

Lucid Hydra is a chip used on certain motherboards that will allow multiple configurations of GPUs from both Nvidia or ATI. On its initial release it kind of fell on its feet due to lackluster software and horrible support. Its a technology alot of us where interested in but didnt quite deliver kind of like PhysX when introduced by Ageia.

I would not keep it in mind for future builds due to the fact that it will probably take a few more years for them to properly develop or improve upon the software to make it work properly. If you see it making a big stink in news articles then id start to pay attention a bit more but i wouldnt hold my breath on it.
