Hybrid SLI increases graphics performance with GeForce® Boost and provides intelligent power management with HybridPower™. "

Hmmm.... ok, interesting. Then would just standard SLI work? If I'm not mistaken it's possible with the latest drivers to mix and match cards, but what issues would I run in to, if any? Would I theoretically get GTX260 + GT430 power? Or even at least what the GTX260 can do on it's own?
