    well, GT200 have a very lower idle power consumption. so for desktops, it is indeed redundant.

    but for laptops, Hybrid power modes are really useful (if you don't need to log-off and log-on again, Macbook Pro) and should be implemented on all notebooks.

    If I could throw something like an HD4350 in to my system to power Vista Aero while my 4870 takes a break I'd be all for it, it did seem to have a lot of promise.

    Loving the Soundstorm song by the way :D

    Yea, I really hope this tech is in my next laptop so that I can get high performance in games and long battery life when I am not.

    Maybe if they made it open to other IGPs, as it stands the people that have nvidia chipsets and "new" (renamed) cards don't care much for Hybrid SLI.

    Asus has a netbook that can switch between its GMA 950 and Geforce 9300M called the N10 AJ version (some only include GMA950) though it requires a restart. Proof that it is possible to implement with other chipsets.
