    So, is this like an open source cross vendor SLI/Crossfire solution? Would be pretty revolutionary.

    Pretty much! But I think it's more applicable for solutions like Optimus, correct me if I'm wrong.

    Not Crossfire/SLI but Optimus-like setups, exactly.

    Yes. Let's get single card performance up to snuff before we focus on multi-card solutions. Crossfire can wait.

    No it can't.

    Many dual-graphics system hit the market recently and from what I've seen they tend to dominate in numbers.

    I've personaly purchased two AMD dual graphics laptops recently (an Asus and an Acer). I went for this solution as it offered the best price/performace ratio I could find, way supperior to othe singler card models available.

    Yes, Crossfire/SLI/Optimus would have been of secondary importance only two years ago, but given their recent massive increase in numbers, I would think to reconsider their position/importance.
