to disregard the bezels making them a non-factor. this allows one to focus on the actual gameplay.
I'm not joking and this has been proven by doctors and such.
also think about it like this, if the brain didn't phase things out then we would see all the veins and tissues in out eyeballs
when using our eyes to see...

seriously I say this, you can go look it up.
sit back 2.5-3ft away from the MM (multi-monitor) set-up and try it, after sometime you'll be hooked.

Okay this statement is not 100% accurate and should be qualified. One of my best friends is an optometrist and we have had quite a few discussions on the eyes and the way various video technology works. Now your statement is correct in the fact that for many people the brain will learn to ignore the bevel and the experience will feel to them seamless. However this is not true for about 40%, on average of the population.

As one of that 40% I can tell you that no matter the amount of play time I put in I feel like I am in a prison cell looking through bars. The good news however is that there is a solution to be 100% beveless, Projectors. I have seen a couple of setups using mini projectors that can give an amazing 3 display wide setup. The other cool think is that they can be adjusted in spacing to allow for pretty much any display area size you like.

thanks for the objective conjecture and/or fact...
I appreciate it... smile.gif

as you can tell I'm one that has this 'phasing out' effect and bezels do not bother me.

6990/6970 combo all over again. Sound good to me for the price.

Has an official price actually been mentioned?

2 7970's are going to run warm and not to mention the tdp overhead they will have to maintain

I honestly feel it will be faster then the 690 but not by a wide margin.

I predict a 900 buck price tag and ~10% improvement in performance maybe a little more.

That's if they don't make improvements.According to 7790 specs,they have the tech to upgrade 7*** series power draw.Whether the 7990 will feature this remains to be seen.

The current hd7990 already does. And malta will be clocked higher.

Well the only good news I can think is that should any of us want to see Titan VS 690 VS 7990 #s, most review sites I'd think would probably show all three.
