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

Redeemed, I have no Idea of what you are asking me to comment on. Outside of what nvidia presented at GTC 09 I really don't know what nvidia intends to bring to the table with Fermi.

I do expect that it will be technologically superior to anything ATi is currently offering however and that nvidia will support it, the industry and end-users much better than ATi/AMD does (thats the real nvidia advantage, always has been).

I expect that GTX380 (or whatever it might be called) will approximately double GTX280 performance. nvidia aims to double previous generation performance with new architectures generally.

nvidia SLI and 3dfx SLI are almost totally unrelated (they share an acronym since nvidia saw the value of the 3dfx acronym and possibly they share engineers who worked on SLI both at 3dfx & nvidia).

Lastly price/performance is not the be all and end all, as nvidia's market share illustrates. Rather it is customer service and industry cooperation that matter.
