Identical PSUs?

Last time I saw a test of Lucid's technology, it managed to put a 5770 and a GTX 460 together for about a 30% increase over the 460's speed... but in just about any other configuration, the performance increase was either negligible or actually worse than simply not using it.

It's nice to know that the technology is still evolving, but I'm not expecting it to be something people consider using until... Probably the next Intel platform.
