Also consider the pending release of the MSI Big Bang motherboard that will have the Lucid HYDRA chip on it. That will allow you to use any two to four GPUs in tandem, be they AMD or nVIDIA and with scaling that looks to be much superior to CrossfireX or HybridSLI. Perhaps the poster at NGOHQ who notified us of this issue is not over reacting when proclaiming that nVIDIA has shot its self in the foot.
“Well for all those who have used Nvidia cards for PhysX and ATI cards to render graphics in Windows 7… All that is about to change.
Since the release of 186 graphics drivers Nvidia has decided to disable PhysX anytime a Non-Nvidia GPU is even present in the same PC. Nvidia again has shot themselves in the foot here and showed they are not customer oriented. Since they are pushing Physx this will not win over any ATI fanboys with this latest decision.”
