    DirectX 12 rumored to allow combining AMD and Nvidia cards on same PC

    Microsoft's upcoming DirectX 12 is rumoured to feature a revolutionary API that would enable users to combine graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia.

    PC gaming enthusiasts could be in for a treat if the latest rumour from Tom's Hardware is true. So far gamers have been able to combine multiple AMD cards or Nvidia cards using Crossfire or SLI, respectively but they cannot be combined with each other.

    However, the latest rumour suggests that Microsoft could make such a combination possible and remove the dependence on manufacturer restrictions with its next DirectX release in Windows 10.

    CrossSLI? That should also mean you could SLI or Crossfire non identical cards. Software wise anyway, that's what this is isn't it?

    Um, Do these have to be DirectX 12 capable cards? I'll have to read that again. read it again and still not sure? not a whole lot of info to be honest. Sounds interesting, could help those that have spare mismatched cards kicking around unused. My desktop PC's are so old they only have the one PCIe 16 slot in them so it won't benefit me unless I buy a new system.
