Why ? MSI Fuzion

Why would MSI on their product page for the Fuzion motherboard show a chart that depicts a combined HD 5870 and GTX 285 to be SLOWER than a HD 5870 ?

http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=pr...1&prod_no=1979

Is this some new marketing ploy ?

They are actual performance I'd say. Hydra does suck. There's a review of it on Guru3D.

Luckily the board is pretty damn good anyway. But combining 2 high end mixed vid cards just doesn't work, though for lower end models it works really well.
