Expreview found a bunch of photos of the MSI Big Bang motherboard, this Intel P55 based motherboard is one of the first to feature the Hydra multi-GPU processing engine chip from LucidLogix. This technology promises to enable you to mix and match different graphics cards with near linear scaling regardless of application, if it works as advertised it may drive SLI and CrossFire out of the market in no time.
Big Bang mobo features a Lucid Hydra chip whose real-time distributed processing engine is a system-on-a-chip solution that will be able to stay between the CPU and GPU, and direct graphic processing traffic between the GPUs in a highly-efficient manner, resulting in improved graphics performance in any application.
