ASUS Ares World Exclusive

World Exclusive World Exclusive

We love to bring you tomorrows desirable hardware today, and thanks to our secret undercover agent we've obtained a render of the next must have graphics card.

Here it is, the ASUS Ares.

This will be two 5870 cards on a single board, much like the behemoth that is the 4870X2 and far ahead of the slightly disappointing 5970. It also will come replete with a massive 4GB of memory which is akin to the MARS. The MARS was the equally bonkers card we gave away in our Aries system recently. Aries. Ares. Hmmm coincidence?

This amount of GDDR5 RAM will ensure the performance should be extraordinary even with high Anti-Aliasing at the huge resolutions the Eyefinity technology can reach.

As you can see, it also comes with the Republic of Gamers branding, so expectations are high that this will be the bees knees and the dogs danglies.

We also managed to obtain this secret graph showing how far ahead of the 5970 this will be. Better cooling, faster performance, ROG branding, gorgeous to look at. Set the level of want to maximum.

We can't wait.

Discuss this incredible looking piece of hardware in our forums.

We've smuggled our spy back to the OC3D bunker, hidden in the back of a server, and he managed to obtain details of the latest ASUS graphics behemoth.

This simply runs at much higher frequencies than the 5970 and has twice the memory. In other words, PURE AWESOMENESS

28% performance increase.... WOW! Don't think Fermi will be able to compete with this lol!!

26-02-2010, 15:23:41

Don't forget clock_Ed that firstly the Ares is two GFX cards, so Fermi wont really have to compete, and secondly our own 5870 xF tests showed about 20% over a 5970. So around 30% with some clever trickery would be to be expected.

hmm, that looks to be a lot of copper on top, must be rather warm, bit still, looks great

26-02-2010, 20:23:41

26-02-2010, 22:05:20

Wow that thing looks amazing! I wonder if it's going to come with its own power supply? lol.

Sapphire have announced that they will be releasing an overclocked 5970 with 4GB memory and custom cooling aswell!

That may be, but Sapphire claim it's the fastest graphics card out there

It will be atm matey. Not after this is out though.

I want one but cant afford it. It will be more expensive than a 5970 which is over 700 euro here in Ireland.
