It's both, actually. I've owned several multi-GPU setups over the years.. a few as an early adopter, like 8800SLI and 4870XFire. Never seen the volume and severity of issues that I experienced with 7xxx Crossfire as an early adopter. Every game that I owned/played over a period of a week was impacted in some way or another. I even had to use an unconventional uninstall method when my 570s arrived to get them out of my system since the AMD driver wasn't showing up in the Windows program list.

The rest of your post I do agree with, though.
