Default New Intel x58 may have Hydra chip

Intel
puts Lucid Hydra on x58
Mix and match GPUs on Smackover 2
By Charlie Demerjian
Friday, 19 December 2008, 15:51

IT LOOKS LIKE Intel is not content with their x58 'Smackover' board, and is going to add a Lucid Hydra chip

to the next revision. Yup, improved in every way, plus mix-and-match GPUs, what's not to love?

Early word from people who claim to have seen boards in the orient confirms what the moles say, a Lucid

Hydra chip, plus a few other goodies like an LED status readout. Moles inside second biggest blue say that

the board is pretty much changed everywhere in detail, and that can't be a bad thing.

This confirms what people told me a while ago, that Intel is taking gaming seriously and is listening to

feedback. The last few Intel gaming boards have been fast, solid and feature laden, but lack that special

pop the low-IQ set seems to crave. Luckily Intel isn't adding LEDs galore and shiny bits, just functionality

and things that matter. Good for them.

In the end, you will get a fast board that won't have heatpipes that double as a house for your hamster, but

you will get mix and match GPUs. This board is going to be one to watch. µ

If it works at all it will be buggy as hell and people will be sued. When future rendering solutions come out the chip will probably be worthless. I give it a 100% chance of failure.

I think they nay sayers will be vastly surprised by how well this will work. Something will have to be done about Vista's single vendor at a time support to allow Hydra to do it's thing, but it IS doable.

Yes. Which is a better method to use very different rendering and faster than AFR/SFR modes.

http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=607

http://techreport.com/articles.x/15367


A pair of 9800GTX running Crysis at 1920x1200 maximum quality- performance between 40 to 60 FPS on the game built in frame rates counter.


I'd reckon if a 4870X2 can get over 60FPS over 1920x1200 with highest quality level. But how about a pair of 4870X2 in CFX? Over 100FPS at 2560x1600???

More info.

Quote:
So, how do the multiple GPUs connected to a HYDRA ASIC relate to the host system? The Lucid HYDRA Engine is capable of bringing together dissimilar cards to work on rendering tasks - however, there is one limitation: All GPUs must be able to share the same software driver. That means you can forget mixing and matching cards with ATI and NVIDIA GPUs in the same HYDRA configuration. Cards from both makers can theoretically be present in the same system, however - you could have a HYDRA array of ATI Radeon HD 4870s handling the video rendering, with a low-end NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT handling PhysX acceleration, for example.

I wish I could tell you that hd5boros fought the good fight, and the spam filter let him be. I wish I could tell you that - but Rage3D is no fairy-tale world. He never said who did it, but we all knew. Things went on like that for awhile - Rage3D consists of routine, and then more routine. Every so often, hd5boros would show up with fresh bruises. The spam filter kept at him - sometimes he was able to fight 'em off, sometimes not. And that's how it went for hd5boros - that was his routine. I do believe those first two years were the worst for him, and I also believe that if things had gone on that way, this place would have got the best of him.
