Post Epic Fail: Lucid Hydra

HardwareHeaven recently came up with an interesting article about Lucid's Hydra. Here is a small snip from the article: "Over the past couple of months we have had a few boards pass through the office from major manufacturers which have featured the Lucid Hydra chipset and all have failed to make it to the stage of having a review published. Why? Well it's not pretty and that's the point of this article...

Essentially, given our experience with boards featuring Lucid Hydra tech we feel that it has no place on consumer motherboards. It is a waste of resources, time and money but before we go into the details we should explain what Lucid Hydra is.

hat they are saying is that a board with the Hydra chipset will allow us to combine two types of graphics cards in one system for enhanced performance. This means we could for example choose to use a Radeon 5700 series graphics card then, rather than buy a second for CrossFire, we could use an NVIDIA card as our second GPU to boost performance in games. In addition to this manufacturers also seem keen to push this solution as a way to get SLI working on AMD chipsets."
