    Forgot all about this from last year. Lucid finally has some working hardware it seems. And the demo they showed off (albeit very limited) was with a dual GPU solution using 1 nVidia card and 1 ATI card, pretty impressive.

    Before you get too excited though, there are no performance figures quoted, just a working demo of the tech on a P55 board.

    While its nice tech - I'd imagine that mixing 2 cards that are too different is going to have less than ideal results... i.e. nvidia card and ATI card are going to have slightly different light levels, color balance, filtering quality, etc. which means the composited scene could look kinda odd.
