Your link shows that's true for GTX480 in SLI (up to 2560x1600) but the industry has kept chugging along as it always does since that article's August publish date.

Performance has improved with GTX580 and 6970. The small differences will be amplified. How much is the question.

Back in the real world of course, 8x+8x is quite fine for all but the highest end systems.

The point stands.

There is substantial bandwidth headroom in an 8x+8x, more than enough to accommodate any current SLI or Crossfire setup.

8x+8x is not a limitation.
