Stardock tool lets you mix NVIDIA and AMD GPUs

Posted on Tuesday, March 15 2016 @ 11:25:41 CET by

Stardock announced it's cooperating with Microsoft to launch a new software-based solution that will let you use AMD and NVIDIA GPUs in a single system. The solution is part of DirectX 12 and will let you mix and match cards from different brands and generations however you want. Specifics on how this new software works weren't revealed, nor do we know how this is different from the multi-adapter mode in DirectX 12.
In an exclusive interview with GamesBeat, CEO Brad Wardell laid out the PC utility and gaming company’s initiative for this radical idea. It’s a software solution that’s part of DirectX 12, and some might forget that Stardock’s main business is making utilities like Fences for Windows. The solution enables you to use AMD and Nvidia video cards in one PC, and you don’t need cumbersome setups like AMD’s CrossFire or Nvidia’s SLI (which link multiple cards together — but only of the corresponding manufacturer, and the cards must be identical). You just plug into your existing PCIe ports. The company and Microsoft plan to talk about this exciting innovation this week during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

“We will come up with a cool marketing name for it,” Wardell said with a laugh. “Basically, it’s multi-GPU. You can mix and match cards however you want.”
