Lucid Hydra 200, Cross-Fire, or SLI? What has better performance? Are there any other features other then being able to use nearly any GPU together?

CrossFire probably has better performance, especially if you do something like 2x HD5770.

Another question (and bump), can you crossfire 2 same cards on a hydra mobo?

Oh yes, I'm just not sure if you receive any performance knockoff. If you're going to Crossfire, stick to a Crossfire motherboard.

Yeah problem is im waiting for MSI's new 870NB mobo, which will have hydra, but like the other 870NB mobos it wont have crossfire, and I dont want to spend too much. Im hoping to get 8** series mobo to run the new bulldozer cpu when it comes out. All help is appreciated, TY in advance.

Im looking to upgrade my 790fx to an 890fx. That is under two conditions however:
1. Bulldozer requires a newer 8xx mobo
2. the 890fx will have faster default hypertransport speeds.

wel let you know go look at the reviews of SLI and crossfire on Lucid Hydra 200 they say it make your 2nd card doing 80% more than anyother SLI or crossfire motherboard with the same video card doing the SLI or CF and other as more card like 3 or 4. but they got another chip out there that is able to do 6-8 way PCI_E. i'm waiting for it. even mix and match or all single video card useing. can't wait for QCDDR3 with the new AMD.

I would DO SLI on this Lucid Hydra on this chips it blow it way if they do the what say.
