Well, reading the specs, it seems that only the first head would be 
accelerated unless they're set up in a twinhead configuration.  The 
other two heads are not.  True "dual core" GPU units are hard to find 
and $$$$.  And the advertising copy makes it hard to tell which is which.

I could be wrong, though.   If anyone knows of a single AGP/PCI-e card 
that can do DRI on separate heads I'd like to know about it - just in 
case I build another multi-head setup.
