    I don't think so, each card will still need its own driver. The GPUs aggregation capabilities in the OS is what impresses me !

    Is it just me, or does it sound similar to Lucid Logix. I wonder if you can use onboard graphics and a dedicated gpu with this new DX 12 feature.

    I guess yes, it will be possible ! And that will be great specially for modern high performance ultrabooks !

    This sounds like a software SLI and Crossfire so that when simple graphics are required a low power solution can be used and when playing Crysis all GPU processing can be used. So it would seem if you have an i7 with HD video, a super duper AMD and or NVidia you could use them all to do the rendering and boost the graphics quality. I am interested.

    I'd like to pair my Radeon 280X with a Geforce GTX 970 !

    ~edit~

    Or maybe I simply get a 290X 8GB and pair with my 280X 3GB, totalizing 11GB of VRAM.

    I'd like to pair one of my 290s with a 980. Hahaha
