sli hack on lucid hydra board

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
would the sli hack work on a lucid hydra board such as the 870a fuzion power edition?
post #2 of 13
Most likely.

Not wanting to use the hydra itself?

Hydra SLI performance is actually really, really crappy. Almost no gains. Good try, but it hints that there's a lot to work on before it can become an acceptable mainstream multi-GPU solution.

That is just flat out 100% incorrect. We have gotten a couple of guys beating native CrossfireX in a few benchmarks such as Vantage in the Official Crosshair IV thread.

I wish people would stop spreading these rumors about Lucid being crap.

About 80% of the time we see that Lucid Hydralogix is within 5~10% of the same performance of CrossfireX or SLi. About 10% of titles have poor performance in non-supported titles, and 10% where its the exact same or better than native multi-GPU. On top of that, cross manufacturer mixing works surprisingly well, which does benefit with each driver release.

SLI-Hack works perfectly fine on our board (Crosshair IV Extreme), just so you know.

Are you insane???????? SLi vs Hydra almost no difference! You really should do some testing of your own or at least do your homework before you blurt out something that is completely incorrect.

It was in a review of the MSI P55 Hydra board I believe, the scaling was not very good at all. Let met try and dig up that link...

We have seen that review many times, and its so quoted to me so many times it makes me sick. I couldn't score that low with two GPUs in Lucid if I tried.

Try these:

http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/c..._iv_extreme/11

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...zion,2769.html

Not to mention the drivers were brand new in all the reviews. They have had over 3 months to mature of course, which every product benefits from.

I do also know that the Extreme board have an upgraded/different Logix chip so its hard to gauge whats entirely different between the BigBang and the Crosshair IV, but we also see an increase of 10~20% on all of these scores.

There's something you are all missing out on. At the bottom of the page is a link called "Discuss here" which leads to this thread.
In that forum thread we learn why exactly the names of the cards/etc. weren't revealed. We get answers to the complaints of the people. We even learn through a humorously sarcastic post that the reviewer (Veridian) is an awarded reviewer who can actually be trusted. I don't know about the rest of you but I believe this and I'd like to stick to my side of not entrusting the Hydra for major consumer use.
