     Lucid raises 8 million dollars

    Lucid is a fairly un unknown company, even though its flagship product has attracted plenty of attention in the press. This the firm that developed the Hydra 200 chip that can be found in MSI Big Bang Fuzion motherboards. To recap, this couples two graphics cards without you having to concern yourself with model or maker, allowing a much more supple handling whether with an SLI or a standard Crossfire. Nothing stops you, for example, combining a Radeon 5870 with a GTX285 or a GT220 and a 5450. Although not yet possible, we can imagine benefiting from CUDA and PhysX on one side and the graphics power of a Radeon 5xxx on the other.

    The system is currently very dependent on drivers from Lucid, who have to test and validate a huge number of possible combinations. This means a big team and big budgets. Here Lucid has announced that it has received an additional USD 8 million from its investors (Rho Ventures, Giza Venture Capital et Genesis Partners), clearly showing, still according to Lucid, the viability of its concept.

    The capitalisation of Lucid is now USD 40 million, which promises the company a certain durability allowing it to continue developing the possibilities of its Hydra chip.
