sorry for my bad grammar and spelling, English is my first language...I just haven't had my cup of coffee yet
Because most SLi / Xfire use a single display + decent resolution.
This may come as a shocker to some, but some of us like to have at least 1920x1080 with 8xAA or higher, 16x AF, all lightning effects, tessellation, and what not, when we game. Here is the other kicker, we like to be above 60 FPS always, or 120 FPS always (depending on Hz) and the only one way to do that with todays games, is multiple-GPUs. You take my second card out, I can only max 50% of my games. If you are investing 200~300~400~500$ into a card, just so you can find out that you can't run the game on max settings, you might as well just concede to playing games on the console and pay for that in my opinion. I play PC games for the HD / HQ graphics primarily, secondary would be controls (mouse and keyboard.)
Just as a note: Many nVidia users currently have this issue for the Fermis, where for no apparent reason, have low GPU utilization (getting stuck at 30~50%.) The cards are so powerful (especially in multi-GPU setups) that it can often times go undetected.
ATi Drivers also look broken in Trifire in some games.Edited by RagingCain - 3/14/11 at 7:14am
