AMD Responds to Lucid Hydra platform

AMD Responds to Lucid Hydra platform

We recently covered an article detailing the Lucid Hydra platform which allows enthusiast users to run multiple mixed cards from Nvidia and ATI to get more performance. Just like people currently do in SLI or Crossfire, but it is not platform specific.

AMD’s Jay Marsden issued the following statement to us when we asked him last night about the platform.

"AMD’s goal with CrossFireX is to is to deliver the best graphics performance possible and give gamers the ultimate upgrade path. We have added countless software and hardware innovations to CrossFireX technology over the years to ensure that we deliver performance in spades. To say CrossFireX is old is plain wrong, it would be like calling Radeon old.

Multi-GPU technology is a key focus for AMD.

We are on the cutting edge with our solutions today and we continue to invest R&D in this area to ensure that we deliver the best solutions in the long run.

We are in favor of solutions that improve the user experience and we have not seen that from Lucid. It’s up to them to show the world that their technology works as they say it does."

AMD seem unconvinced, but we are interested to see how the platform shapes up in the coming weeks.
