Crosshair IV Extreme and 3D Vision

The ASUS ROG Crosshair IV Extreme uses Lucid Hydra technology to let you mix and match gpus. I'm not really interested in mixing NVidia and ATI/AMD gpus, my real question is whether I can use this technology in conjunction with 3d Vision and PhysX. If the answer is no, what is the best solution for a NVidia/AMD combo?

  1. Are you looking to run a dual graphics card setup??

    It is my understanding that this board is suppose to bring SLI to AMD on an AMD chipset. If you are planning to run a single card and a second card for PhysX, you befind either way since not in SLI (no bridge). The cards act independent of each other so it is all based on the Nvidia Drivers.

    To be more clear, if I were to run two NVidia cards (say two 480s) using the Crosslinx 3/Hydra Engine technology, could I use 3D Vision* in that setup?
    *PhysX is a lesser priority.
  3. You only need 1 card to run Nvision if you have Nvidia drivers yes it will work and you could configure ur spare card to run PhysiX

    What I mean is if I run two 480s together using the hydra technology for a performance boost would that work with NVidia 3D Vision or does that only work with SLI? I don't want to run a second card with PhysX, that would defeat the point.
  5. So does nobody know? Am I not being clear enough?

    Nvidia 3D Vision will work with a single card or an SLI setup. If the motherboard supports SLI (which by all accounts it does) than it'll work with two cards in 3D Vision.

    It's not technically SLI, but I think you are right.
