The original Left 4 Dead is one of Lucid’s supported titles, but there’s apparently enough different with the sequel to mess with X-mode when we manually add it to Hydra’s control panel. In addition to a significant performance hit, we also saw black flashing bars during configuration and game play.
A noticeable speed-up in A-mode lets us know both cards are running, but the scaling here isn’t quite as good as it is in CrossFire mode. N-mode tells a similar tale, with the SLI’d cards outperforming Lucid’s N-mode.
