Doesn't look like 24fps to me.

6950 also has 2gb of memory so it wont choke at high res.

6950 also scales MUCH better in crossfire than sli does.

6950 also uses less power than a 570.
On single card EyeFinity:

So there's BF Bad Company, running at a whole 47fps average with a 26fps minimum on TWO 6950s at 57 X 12 2x 16X. Now given that cards are getting 80-90+% scaling, that average is dropping to the 20s with one 6950.

How about Mafia2? Wowee! A whole 45fps average for two 6970s! Would be great to do some one 6970 EyeFinity in the low 20s.

Beyond the benchmarks above, I've been gaming on NVIDIA Surround with 480SLi and 570SLi for over half a year now, I can tell you I've never once wished I could do it on one. It takes a LOT of graphics power to game like most people are used to at 50X10 and up. ATi doesn't have any cards more powerful than 480s and 570s, so I think I can say with confidence most gamers would want a couple ATi cards as well. (or a dual GPU ATi card)

On the phantom ATi 3d you reference:
Please link us to a North American etailer or retailer selling a 1080P monitor that can be used with ATis 3d science project. I won't hold my breath because:,2776-3.html

First, there are no dedicated 3D monitors in North America that employ the HDMI 1.4 standard—all of the available 3D monitors at the moment are Nvidia 3D Vision-exclusive, and will not work with the Radeon HD 6800-series cards.
What about the 24fps limit?

Because AMD utilizes the HDMI 1.4a specification, which boasts a maximum TMDS throughput of 10.2 Gb/s, you can either game in stereo at 720p maxing out at 60 frames per second per eye, or you can game at 1080p with up to 24 frames per second per eye.
Your post is very misleading and full of inaccuracy.

I hope no one bought an ATi card with 3d or EyeFinity in mind based on your fallacious post.
