Only those fortunate (or in this case unfortunate) enough to have a $1000 30" monitor will experience this issue.
I wonder if it's a weird 16:10 issue, because the 1920x1080 shows a 100% increase in framerate for BF3. I guess we will find out tomorrow, since Roadhog runs at 2560x1440. Can't wait.
I have a 25X16 monitor, I'd think most people considering a $550 card wouldn't be playing at 19X10. Why would they waste the money? A $200 560Ti or 6950 plays almost everything well at 1080p.
The Hardware Heaven review shows scaling at the games they tested (except Skyrim) at 57X10, so scaling at multiple 1080p monitors is not affected.
Personally I can't imagine a person buying more than one 7970 for less than 25X16, so I think the thread is useful. I'll edit the OP to note the 25X16 factor.
