    So, today I was lurking around on forums here and there, just looking at stuff and I found one thread, where a guy was asking, if he could SLi his GTX550ti and a GTX660. Everyone answered that question with a "no, you can't". I was about to move on from that thread, but suddenly I remembered about MSi Big Bang Fuzion mobo with Lucid Hydra chip, review I read on this site quite a long time ago. Now that review was from 2010 and googling Lucid Hydra brings all the results from 2010, basically no more results after 2010.

    So what the hell happened to it..? I mean it was more like a gimmick at the time, but I at least found it quite interesting and something, that people would actually buy given the performance and compatibilty would improve over time
    (a price drop would be nice too). It looks like everyone just forgot it... But my question to you gurus is, did anybody even try it out for themselves and how was the experience..?

    I think it turned into Lucid Virtu.
