According to NVIDIA's Tom Petersen G-Sync in surround should work with the next driver release. In the video below triple ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q are used for such a surround setup. At this moment you also need 3 gpus for 3 display port connection, since G-Sync only works via display port. Possible future fixes for this issue are also discussed (i.e. a hub).

Excellent news, hopefully the 800 series has two DisplayPort instead and or as well as DVI(s). Somehow I think surround 1440p will be a struggle for two way SLI, hope Nvidia prove me wrong. :)

Let's hope Nvidia also decides to support MST.
Even AMD switched back from 2x mDP to 2xDVI and a normal DP.
It's a shame.

I think I understand what Tom Peterson from Nvidia was talking about in the video of my first post. The 980 will have (in all likelihood) have three displayports: source. This way G-Sync in surround is possible with just one card. He talked about the next driver supporting that, so I think he meant the driver that will be released with the launch of the 980 on the 19th of September. What do you guys think?

I think you need more then 3x 780ti's to drive 3 4k displays in surround. At least with these new connection options, we will be able to test that.
