While you claim it'll beat a conventional Crossfire setup as it has a healthy overclock I foresee bandwidth issues, especially in more modern games using DX11 and tessalation. The advantage of a traditional 2x 5870 setup is you get a full 16x PCI-E slot to each GPU; whereas with this solution each GPU is recieving 8x each, twinned with the enormous amoun tof memory to fill I think regular Crossfire may scale better at higher resolution/detail.
Final problem is you can buy 2 5870's cheaper than a single 5970, possibly even overclocked models.

also SLI GTX480s cost around this much, could we get benches vs that aswell?
