Yes some people say they are very happy with SLI but they say it themselves they don't play many games... People that play a large pool of games will not be satisfied. Look we have August: No Man's Sky, Deus EX new WoW expansion none of this games supports SLI.
You're right, I really lament having GTX 1080 level performance for 2 years now at less cost (than many 1080 guys are paying now). Those twin GTX 970s that I bought for $630 2 years ago were really not worth it. I much prefer to have waited another two years and pay $650 for GTX 1080 for the exact same thing in most games, just to be able to play Just Cause 3 (the only major title not supporting SLI).
You're right, SLI is a scam. Waiting 2 years for the same kind of performance and actually paying more for it is not... *rolls eyes*
To be serious for a bit: SLI is a real bang for buck purchase if one's strategic about it. Quad SLIing Titans is obviously silly unless you really have a need of that performance, but SLI in general is not that bad...
