I agree with pretty much everything you just said. Further I agree with what others have posted along these lines.
HOWEVER; it doesn't mean that this shouldn't be pursued. In five years, it would be nice not to have to buy GPUs in "sets" for SLI or Crossfire to get multi-gpu power. Somebody like me, who switches vendors frequently absolutely sees a benefit to this coming together and working out.
Saying about this feature, "I don't really see a point to this" or that it's "a waste of time" or however some have verbalized it is really shortsighted and/or reveals that some feel threatened by the loss of superiority for their respective GPU camp of choice.
There really isn't much else to say. If people feel "threatened" or that I'm somehow trying to start a "fight" (a laughable assertion on a forum); then that's on them.
Don't forget that this feature is kinda old.
It was a nice idea. It showed increased performance. But it died.
Currently the idea is nice, but the question is when games are out of alpha/beta
and drivers are fully ready
, how much it will really matter? Especially if when both nvidia and amd roll out new hardware next year, when DX12 will actually start to matter, we will see the same thing?
Also, a small note, that choosing the main GPU might be more of an issue. When you have to switch which card is the main card between games, and how it works, having to switch the cables, suddenly you lose g-sync or freesync, those things will also matter whether people will actually go to multi vendors, or stay on the same boat.
