I don't think they're shoddy. They're just an expensive niche product.

^This.

Monkey do you know how hard it is to slap 2 video cards into one pcb? It's not easy or simple. Even though the gtx 590 is in development and the 6990 was it doesn't mean that they aren't working on new stuff. Honestly I'd lvoe to see dual cards of every card. why? It's simple I lost about 4-5 slots if i am to run dual cards instead of just one. Heat and power aren't anywhere near having issues, of course it draws more power then your single card....
There is another issue too, we are coming to the limits of a. the law of diminishing returns and we are hitting the limits of Silicone.

Well yes, that extra R&D could be put to better uses instead of slapping together 2 GPUs a few months before the next generation...

Not to mention the microshuttering problem and driver issues. Lastly, games are still being designed for half a decade old consoles so in the end you're left with an extremely expensive and powerful card running console ports...
