    Where is the HDMI connector? At least ONE would be nice, instead of those displayports

    DVI-HDMI converter?

    a single normal sized displayport would help. considering displayport monitors give a free normal sized displayport cable.

    They normally bundle a few adaptors.

    Displayport *might* not be mainstream *yet* but it soon will be - there was a recent article explaining how Intel, AMD, Samsung, Lenovo, Dell, etc are all planning to migrate towards Displayport and HDMI for their products.

    too right.

    i expect them to be less than 2x price of their GPU counter parts.
    eg. 6990 is two 6970 then it will sell for less than £550
    eg. 590 is two 570 then it will sell for less than £600

    it's multi-GPU on a stick, multi-GPU setup have always been cheaper than a single faster GPU

    there probably will be a DP to hdmi converter included for a card in its price range.

    the point of both the nvidia and amd dual gpu cards is to be the fastest gaming cards on the market therefore the point of these cards is not useless, overpriced and just a bit too much for most people maybe but useless? nope definately not
