Default SLI from diffirent manufactuers

I think I have asked this before but never really got a proper answer.

With SLI do I need to run the same G card in terms of vendors?

Is anybody running SLI using diffirent vendor cards?

SLI is really picky, so I would say it isn't worth the risk. If they core and clock speed are identicle than it may work... I haven't tried though.

I have just read the sticky article at the top of this forum on SLI. it indicates that it should now be possible as long asthe cards are the same speeds etc.

lets hope so.

Dont the card both perform at the card with the lowest speed, or is it just crossfire?
