Basically, it's not because a single HD7970 can't do better in 3 monitor mode...
Astonishing! A 7970 is faster than a year old 580?!?! I just read that whole review,stand by what I said. In all games except Skyrim, settings are turned off and framerates are low. Woot! Rockin' the 35fps averages with minimums in the 20s!!
