You're right, it isn't as good...it's better. In fact, regular Surround is even better. Hell, even all the reviewers who panned the Fermi when it came out admit that it's better, including Kyle from HardOCP who was a raving Eyefinity fanboy said that "NV Surround gaming with GTX 480 SLI will give you the best gaming experience you have ever had." Surround works better, it scales better, it's just better all around.
Since you were mentioning gimmicks, six screen Eyefinity should have made your list, because that's all it is. No one uses it.
I've yet to see any gamer using Eyefinity with six screens, and even if someone did they certainly wouldn't be doing it with a single card. Even further, the setups I've seen from reviewers don't come close to a surround setup in immersion due to think ass bezels everywhere, which even with bezel correction don't go away...in 3D they do, or at least you can see right through them due to the way 3D works with it.
