Default Lucidís Hydra Unleashed

In our limited testing, there is little else we can say besides the fact that the Hydra software needs more development. Lucid needs to squash the graphical corruption and the crashes, and then they need to work on getting more product-appropriate games supported. More performance is almost a must, but at this point it would be a bigger sign of progress if the glitches went away first.

MSI is taking a big risk on Lucid and the Hydra here, but they themselves have also stumbled on their attempt to get into the high-end motherboard business. While this is not a motherboard review, we canít wrap our heads around the fact that the Fuzion doesnít support SLI. If a $350 motherboard doesnít support SLI, what will? If you buy this board and the Hydra technology doesnít pan out, youíre effectively limited to AMD cards if you still want to go the multi-GPU route, and thatís a risk that canít be ignored.
