this is purely out of curiosity, i do not want to actually do this.

what fps would 4x 7970's in crossfire with 6gb of vram get on 6x 2560 by 1600 displays on bf3 on ultra, all settings maxed?

does anyone actually have this setup?

quad CFX/SLI's scalability is terrible....

and it would run terribly. 2x GTX 680s in SLI can barely do BF3 in a triple 1080p monitor set-up in ultra at 60 fps... i think it would get 20 fps max on 6 monitors...

in all honestly, max settings are not going to be playable at that resolution for a few generations of cards

also I would say scale back to 5 monitor for ATI as they support 5x1 eyefinity then put the monitors into portrait mode (taller than wide) for 8000x2560 resolution (25:8 aspect ratio)

the performance doesn't scale linearly.

like having 4x7970s in CFX won't make it perform 4x better than 1x7970.
