For who? You and the eight other guys that have 3 X 30"?
No offense, but you're not profitable to design reference products for. Steam survey shows only 4.39% of their over one million surveyed have a resolution that's below 10X7 or above 19X12,and that less than 25% of the 1 maybe 2% of people that have multi monitor might have your resolution. They don't have the far more popular 5040X1050 listed, or 5760 X1080 listed, so my guess is your resolution is a pretty tiny percentage even of the quarter to half a percent it might be.
So, while it's well and good you opted for a very nice set of monitors, you aren't really expecting reference products to target your market are you? Why would 99.75% of us want to pay more so you are accomodated?
The fact is 1.5GB does very well for 5760 X 1080, if you look at the VRAM usage charts here:
Only exceeds 1.5GB on the 5760 X1080 tests on 4/11 games tested, and one of those barely.
Personally I like 30" displays, have a 3007WFP-HC, but I went with 3 X GD235Hz for the possibility of running games at good framerates and in 3d when I upgraded my 3 X 2233RZs.
NVIDIA board makers do have your back though- they are the only ones producing 3GB cards for those of you blessed with the l33t 75X16.
EDIT- just noticed your three way 3GB SLi, so I guess you know that!
