ASUS Immensity has Lucid Hydra and discrete GPU (video)

Posted on Wednesday, June 02 2010 @ 22:05:28 CEST by


TweakTown published a video of the ASUS Immensity, a new motherboard concept that features the Lucid Hydra multi-GPU chip and even a discrete mid-range GPU.
It is an Intel X58 Express based ROG board for the latest Socket 1366 processors and what’s real interesting about is that it comes with not only a Lucid Hydra processing chip onboard, but also a discrete GPU. And we aren’t talking any standard Intel IGP, but a mid-range GPU from either NVIDIA or AMD, I don’t think the actual choice has been made at this stage of the game, remembering what we saw was a very early concept mockup. I also doubt it is even working right now.

Kris from ASUS claimed that by adding in the onboard discrete GPU, users should see up to about a 20% increase in performance by combining it with your traditional discrete GPU in form of a usual PCI Express video card. Also since Lucid’s much talked about Hydra chip is installed, you’ll be able to mix and match any video card from ATI and NVIDIA and run them in Hydra dual or triple graphics mode.
