In comparison to the GTX280 which seems designed specifically to make 3 way SLI more practical.

As you can see it'd be kinda cramped to fit in a 3rd one with the current design. And the airflow system is setup to take in air from the top and bottom of the card.
Hmm didn't nvidia say those were just early engineering samples?

So why couldn't they do a full review?
