QuadFire really requires it IMHO. I didn't have very long with two cards before my first died, but I was still seeing the dreaded "microstutter" in specific situations. I do think that the sideport could lessen that, but as you have said, it's kinda up to programmers to make use of it first....and yes, proof of concept, like tesselation engine in R600, but that doesn't mean it cannot be used...

And really, the real use of sideport is under NDA, but I'm pretty sure a couple of the smarter guys out there can figure it out...
