Surely that will not satisfy high resolution multi monitor gaming, for those who want to max out their games?
A great place to get your answer would be in the 6990, 6970 & Eyefinity club threads because they have been doing it with 2GB since last December.
Those that had 580 1.5GB SLl moved either to AMD for the 2GB or eventually to the 580 3GB. They'd have better insight on how more demanding games are running on multiple monitors.
HardOCP did multiple monitor tests when the 680 launched and it kept up with the 7970 in high res quite comparably.
On a personal level for me on a single 1920x1200 res monitor this card would be great for my 3D Vision performance when in 3D games.
Other benifits would be those with limited PCIe slot boards still accomplish Quad SLI with two 690's.
New boards come PCIe 3.0 x16 in the first slot config or PCIe 3.0 x8 if you occupy the first and second slot. I'd like to see if PCIe 3.0 will saturate the performance out of the dual GPU set up in x16 and make up ground over two singles in SLI X8. Going to be an interesting test for 690 or 7990 against thier single counter parts.
