PCI-E and AGP at the same time!

I’m in Taiwan at VIA’s head office running some tests on some new chipsets that will come out next year in Jan/Feb.

I was testing it and I thought what the hell, lets see what happens when I plug a PCI-E and AGP in together. I had already told all the media it won't boot the 2 cards but I wanted to see if it just doesn’t work or only card works or what. Well it booted. The AGP card was working and nothing on the PCI-E during boot up. Then Windows starts and its swaps to the PCI-E card I’m like "What the ..!" d=y

Now this is different ..... better than "SLI" or another way to utlilize "SLI". Good thinking ...... a product that saves money and yields better performance is always welcome.
