Lucid HYDRA Multi-GPU Enabled ASUS ROG Motherboards Promise High Performance


LucidLogix and ASUS this week at the Computex tradeshow in Taiwan is showing the Lucid HYDRA 200 real time distributed processor in ASUS's new ROG Crosshair IV Extreme motherboard and ROG Immensity concept.

The new motherboards promise to provide ultra high-performance gaming using the multi-GPU sharing capabilities of the HYDRA Engine that allows consumers to mix and match up to three GPUs (new or repurposed) regardless of brand, series or price.

Furthermore, ASUS created the concept board Immensity, a desktop motherboard implementation that uses an on-board discrete GPU to add performance and balance power. With this motherboard, a gamer can use a single video card in a multi-GPU configuration to gain a competitive edge.

The HYDRA Engine offers a flexible solution for performance hungry consumers who may wish to upgrade to multiple GPUs from a variety of vendors. This new approach provides interoperability among GPUs and chipsets, auto-correct load balancing and multiple GPUs that simultaneously process a single frame within a game, thus resolving bottlenecks and inter-frame dependencies prior to rendering.

The ROG Crosshair IV Extreme with the HYDRA 200 is based on the AMD 890FX chipset. The board supports AM3 processors, including the recently released Phenom II X6 models. It offers five PCIex16 slots along with the overclocking interface called RC Bluetooth. The Immensity, also featuring HYDRA 200, can include a built-in discrete GPU.

ASUS and HYDRA 200 enabled motherboard owners can enjoy playing hundreds of AAA PC games, including DirectX 11 titles with a wide range of graphics card combinations including support for the new NVIDIA Fermi based boards. Additionally, they can expect accelerated ATI Eyefinity support and compatibility with NVIDIA's CUDA and PHYSX technologies.

ASUS has not provided the release date for the Crosshair IV Extreme motherboard shortly.
