We've heard a rumour that was so ground-breaking we had to share.

The more it gets used the more it will be supported and the better it will be.

I have to say I love the idea of it actually working. But I don't love the idea of it being anything like quadfire

I really hope this works out well, could deffo be the future IMO.

Well if the Lucid Hydra chip would work well then this would be amazing. From what I've seen though, an NVidia card paired up an ATI card gives VERY LITTLE improvement if not any at all. If they perfected the technology and for some miracle reason ATI (Now AMD) and NVidia would help work out this relationship, and the full extent of both cards would be used to combine the ultimate gaming PC, then it would be a great idea to include a lucid chip on every video card... But hey unless NVidia brings out something Stronger, faster and cheaper than the new 6000series, when the AMD 6000series come out you wont need any other cards. The HD 6870 will completely dominate anything else NVidia can throw out. Only reason to include one would be for PhysX thats it... Unless you need a heater in your room then you can use one =P

I follow Powercolor on Facebook and one of their testers was upping pictures of him running ATI + NVIDIA combined on a non-fusion/lucid motherboard. Supposedly a teaser

They work together apparently. The primary card obs does the hard work, but it's split between them...

HYDRA Engine is a brand name for a multi-GPU solution developed by Lucid Logix. Similar to nVidia's SLI and ATI's Crossfire-technologies, Hydra allows linking several video cards together producing a single output and higher performance. Unlike SLI and CrossFire however, Hydra allows video cards from different chip manufactures to be linked together. Lucid claims it can do so with near to linear scaling of performance, i.e. two video cards equals twice the performance. The technology consists of both hardware on the motherboard and device drivers.

Currently there are two chips released under the Hydra Engine brand: Hydra 100 and Hydra 200. The basic concept behind the hardware is to intercept Microsoft DirectX or OpenGL sent to the video cards from the CPU and split these up to divide the calculation task fairly amongst the present GPUs.

See the bit in bold? Hmmmmmmmmmm.. *scratches chin*. I'll believe it when I see it...

I wonder if the Lucid chip gets hot enough that it would warrant a larger cooler on Powercolor's side. Powercolor has been using the same cooler for most of their 5770s.
