sli hack on lucid hydra board - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Back to the point, it's indeed true that Hydra is a poor performance scaler. Not just in that article which you all believe is rubbish that I posted, but also in that second link posted by RagingCain from Tom's Hardware. It may have improved over time with new drivers & versions, but with all due respect, I would still recommend the SLI hack over Hydra in all situations.

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.
Hey, I am totally cool with you thinking that it isn't ready with it being mainstream or crappy. I just wanted to show you there are plenty of reviews that go either way on it. I have used it since it came out, I have had two boards because I loved it so much, and I personally score some good benchies with Lucid.

I sure don't believe your guys numbers, and I would call him liar to his face, either that or he didn't set it up right. Which is understandable, I personally found it a nightmare to work with so I wrote a guide for it to help new guys, which is in my sig in case you were wondering.

First of all, the SLI-Hack hasn't always worked with our board, it was quite of a few of us talking to their devs that got it working. Secondly, I admit that native SLI and CrossfireX is often better by 5~15% on quite a few titles.

There is no guarantee that SLI-Hack will be allowed/around forever. This was developed prior to the release or design of such hack.

Not to mention, what if you want to run a 5870 + 480, a 460 with a 480, a 6870 with a 6970, or a 580 + 570? Thats really what Hydra Logix is for.

This board really gives users the ultimate flexibility now, and saves costs so you can use previously unusable cards with newer cards, thus giving more performance without having to get rid of old gear.

I would also like to know whats your definition of poor scaling, because the majority of the time they are on par with each other. We can also beat native on quite a few tests and primary game benchmarks.
