Furthermore, at present quad SLI has many issues with stability and compatibility.
Thoughts?

Well I can tell you that this is not the way of the future. Nvidia would not go with this unless it'll make a huge difference. I guess they wanted to show that they can put 4 vcards in on rig ! You ATI fanboys are just gealous

Quad SLI is useless I asid it from the begging it's like a lot of power test. While I still think it can (when it matures) be benificial, for the 10K it would cost, buy a new compter every 2 years for 10 years and you've got a better investment.
