    Another one here. In fact, until you pointed it out, I thought that's what it stood for!
    Quad SLI/Crossfire? It'd be a bit of a crazy feature to support though.

    I was always under the impression that 'Military Grade' meant a few generations old and through soldered, not fancy and surface mount. Im calling misrepresentation on this!

    It does work, that is as long as you only play games where Lucid made it work in, which can of course take some time after a Games release and as soon as you step away from AAA titles support also gets very spotty, just like with Sli and CF, which according to the pre launch hype was supposed to be different with hydra.

    But if you buy those games on launch dates it doesn't work - you have to wait for a driver update. At least SLI/CF kind of work with all new games, regardless.

    Yes, quad SLI/Fire. Great idea on x67.... NOT. Seriously what is the point of this motherboard? You are - from the start - hampered by 2 channel memory. If you do require powerful system for complicated computations CPU/GPU [BOINC/Folding] then buying X58 is complete no-brainer (or SR-2 if you need more POWHAR with dual CPU).

    For gaming rig, you don't need anything more (if ca$h is not the issue) than SLI/CF.
