Testing Lucid Hydra Lt22102

What I Used for Testing: MSI P55A-Fuzion Motherboard. Intel Core i5 760 @ 3.8Ghz and 2Gb DDR3 1800Mhz Cl9 RAM. For those of you who haven't yet been told The P55A Fuzion has the LucidĀ® Hydra LT22102 Chip which allows the use of:

- X-Mode (Nvidia + ATI)
- N-Mode (Nvidia + Nvidia)
- A-Mode (ATI + ATI)

but wait, it gets better! Anyone who knows anything about graphics knows about SLI and CROSSFIRE which involves using two of the exact same GPU to boost graphics power. With the Lucid Hydra LT22102 in N-Mode or A-Mode the two GPU's do not need to be identical. Best of all, its incredibly easy to use, Simply install both Graphics Cards and their drivers, then install the Hydra software (14Mb) and you're done

So say you have a GTS250 1Gb which is essentially a re-branded 9800GT, which you payed about R1200 for a while ago. It's time to upgrade your entire rig and your GTS250 just isn't enough anymore. You want something more... possibly DX11? So instead of just tossing the GTS250 you drop in a GTX460 or possibly a HD6850?

Nobody seems to really know much about LucidLogix's Hydra LT22102 Chip so I decided to put it to the test.
