Default Re: Should Nvidia add Eyefinity to their Fermi boards?

There has to be some sort of catch though.

I know for a fact that if you don't have one of the new ATI cards or a Matrox TripleHead2Go, the only way to run games across 3 screens is to use 2 video cards and SoftTH, which does not support SLI or CrossFire modes at all, so whatever SLI feature it is you're referring be must be something else. Otherwise, why would people with nVIDIA cards be using Matrox Th2Go to game across 3 screens? I'll be honest, I am not familiar with the feature you're talking about, I'd just be extremely surprised as to why SoftTH and Th2Go would even exist if nVIDIA already had a similar feature.

EDIT: reading a bit further, it's not quite clear whether or not SLI Mosaic will allow you to game across more than 2 screens natively, but even if it does, you need to have a Quadro Plex, which is like some sort of super computer for image/video processing. Probably costs like thousands of dollars if not more, so that's probably why no one ever mentions it.
