No native Hybrid dual GPU support in Windows 7

According to Microsoft Hybrid SLI and CrossFireX are unstable and provide poor user experiences and as a result they will not be natively supported in Windows 7

Neither had I until I was buying an AM2+ Mobo the other day. One of those that came up was the XFX MI-A78S-8209 Motherboard

"Amplify your gaming experience with the XFX GeForce 8200 amotherboard. A true performer in every sense of the word, this first-of-its-kind HybridSLI motherboard comes jam-packed with all of the full-throttle features handcore gamers demand. From GeForce Boost Technology that pops graphics performance up to 45% to the first motherboard series to support AMD Phenom processors, the 8200 is ready to rock your game." Cost $AU138. So there you go! A hybridSLI MOBO.
