ASUS Ares Review


If you were with us on Wednesday last week, you'll no doubt be dripping with anticipation at this review.

If you weren't with us on Wednesday last week, where the hell were you? Go and read this immediately and write "I must check every day" a hundred times.

Finally the Asus lawyers have let us off the leash and we can bring you results and performance for this beast of a card. We're sure you're as eager as we are to get the hell on with it, so to save repeating the earlier hands-on preview, let's get down to figures.

Technical Specifications

My oh my what specifications they are too. 4GB of RAM. Twin 5870s. It's like a geeks wet dream come true. A silicon paradise.

Great review Tom, I thoroughly enjoyed reading through that.

It performs even better than I expected. There's even more headroom for OCing, impressive. Your conclusion hits the nail on the head though, fantastic product, but the price. It's not for everyone, in fact, it's only for a few.

Is this the future of the high end GPU market?Quote

Id say this is Asus own arena atm tbh, the other manu's making Extreme 5970's are weak as its just a stock card with more memory. The original 5970s biggest problem was power delivery and heat, this solves both. How XFX can charge a grand for their card amazes me as its nothing compaired to this.

Ill get off my soap box quick as Im in the mood for bashing!Quote
