From what I understand, any combination of video cards will work, as long as you can get the drivers working. So if windows (or any other OS) would allow multiple drivers to render the same
3D image, then you could have a 9800gt and a 5850 running the same game. But, as we know, there is no current way (to my knowledge) of doing this. Therefore any combination of cards will work, as long as they use the same driver. Please remember this is only my understanding of the article.
So, if I understand correctly, this means that as soon as an OS supports multiple drivers for one 3D image, then we can pretty much do whatever we please with this new engine. My next motherboard will definitely support this, unless it's some crazy cost over $500 or something
