Overclockers don’t like to be limited by BIOS, so the P55A Fuzion includes frequency and voltage limits that exceed those of most hardware configurations by a wide margin.
Most of the P55A Fuzion’s frequency and voltage settings can be found by scrolling through its Cell Menu, including a few advanced controls such as DRAM reference voltage.
The Advanced DRAM Configuration menu allows per-channel settings, though most users will find the best results by having both channels set identically.
The retail-boxed P55A Fuzion contains twice as many cables as found in this press sample, but no SLI or CrossFire bridges. MSI believes that its users will always prefer HydraLogix multi-GPU control (which doesn't require bridges) over proprietary SLI and CrossFire, but we really don’t think MSI should be adding any restrictions to a board that otherwise supports all three technologies.

Still seems to buggy to me but at least they're still working on it right?Reply
Looks good on the 1st 2 games and synthetics.Reply
I hope Lucid gets all the issues worked out.
So basically it's just a universal CF/SLI connecter built into the motherboard? Seems odd that it's taken this long to be developed, but great nonetheless :)Reply
Looks like it has some promise, if they can further work the kinks out. Something to keep an eye on in the future.Reply
The 6870 scales better in cfx than that 5850. Why not test that?Reply
I can see it as a standard in the future. I think I will buy a board with Hydralogix on my next build.Reply
It would have been nice to see how well this works with two differing AMD/ATI cards and two Nvidia cards. For instance someone has a GTX260 and wants to add a GTX460, or someone with a AMD5850 who wants to pick up a new 6870 (damn numbering change) to go with it.Reply
Also comparing performance pairing two cards from the same generation (say GTX 460 + GTX 470) vs differing generations. (GTX 260 + GTX460)
Lastly what affect would pairing a two cards with varying amounts of memory have? (two regular versions of a card vs 1 reg + 1 dbl memory vs 2 dbl memory) Since it isn't clear from what I've read if both cards would be limited to lowest memory level or not.
Interesting tech for sure
this should become a standard, allowing us to enjoy features from both manufacturers. I would also be prepared to pay few extra bucks for this as well.Reply
Overall,Lucid is a great idea of mixing different cards but it still needs quite a lot of work with drivers.Reply
Ah, thank you. It was posted before I was frequently following the site, I'll give it a look.Reply
