3 turbos means that one turbo will feed two cylinders. This means that the turbos can be small, and hence will spool quickly to minimize turbo lag. And yet, they will be able to move enough volume of air to produce adequate boost since only two cylinders are being boosted per turbo.

I am not all concerned about the technology as long as the heat management is adequate.
