2 different graphics cards at once.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to use 2 different graphics cards at the same time, working together? I'm not talking about CrossFireX either. I mean like a Radeon HD7850 and a 5750. If not that, have a switchable graphics thing going on?

Define 'working together'.

You can easily have multiple GPUs driving different monitors but they won't 'work together' to render 3d frames or similar as would CFX/SLi.

that's what I meant. any way I can have one completely off under idle, then turn on under heavy load?
