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

I'm ignoring their 6 monitor because #1 it's impractical, #2 it's not even out yet.
Yeah, but that's all 3rd party stuff that costs additional cash. That was my point before, that Eyefinity is built-in driver support for anyone who has a 5xxx series card and a few extra monitors. No additional add-on card/device required.

And I don't know too much about those above multi-monitor solutions that you mentioned, but were they more for workstations or do they also work well for gaming?
