Workstation+Gaming GPUs on same Motherboard?

So I just read this:

..."the Asus Maximus has a Lucid chip, which can be useful as an alternative to Crossfire/SLI or can be used to "mix n match" GPUs from different manufacturers and vendors to create Lucid multi-GPU profiles."

Does this mean I can put both a workstation quadro gpu and a gaming gpu on the same mobo?

If so can I have them work independently or do they work at the same time (possibly hindering each other)?
Can I have two diff drivers (workstation gpu & gaming gpu use diff drivers) on one rig?


Gracias in advance.

    The answer to your first and third questions is Yes.

    Read about LucidLogix Virtu GPU Virtualization here:

  2. Whoa....really?!

    Both gpus on one board.....wait does that mean the gaming gpu will run at x8 since it is now sharing with the workstation gpu?
  3. Ok I went to their site and saw no mention of being able to use workstaion and gaming cards simultaneously or switching between them on the samw mobo.


    Not sure they can individually apply workstation drivers with gaming drivers and recognize when to use which one.

    I dont think your right.

    They mean multiple gaming gpus not workstaion and gaming gpus combined (different architecture).

    In the chart they list High End Graphics (gaming, CAD, CAM).

    So you're telling me that CAD and CAM are games? Last I heard they are workstation applications that will utilize workstation GPUs if you have them.

    LucidLogix Virtu uses a White List of applications that have been confirmed work with this technology.

    Why don't you contact LucidLogix and ask?
  6. Oh I see the "(gaming, CAD, CAM)" now....I will contact them.
    This could be amazing.....
    Do any dual cpu mobos have this ability that you know of?
  7. The LucidLogix thing is recent so no I don't know any current dual CPU mobos with this feature.
