Having finished testing the 780G and it's Hybrid Graphics capabilities I was raring to test Nvidia's MCP78 with 8200 IGP and it's Hybrid SLI setup but things didn't fall into place till a few days back.
Although AMD 780G has a not-so-straightforward approach to activate the Hybrid Graphics, it worked fine after fiddling around with in the BIOS for some time. But the 8200 was a different story altogether. The Nvidia MCP78 powered board we received had a direct option to enable/disable hybrid SLI but somehow it just wouldn't work. But after a lot of fiddling around with it we decided to flash the BIOS one more time to the latest version and try again, and the motherboard refused to wake up after that.
So we called for another sample with an updated BIOS and Viola! We were in business. We will put up the comparison for both shortly. Keep watching the space.
