ASUS Ares Review


If you happen to have won the lottery recently, or had a suitably rich distant relation pop their clogs, then maybe you'll be thinking of purchasing a pair of Ares for the ultimate in power. What if...

3D Mark Vantage

When we saw 32000 on our single card run we were stunned. 41192 is the kind of number most of us haven't seen in 3D Mark 03, much less the strenuous Vantage. The amount of GPU power available here is staggering.


Do you need a clearer demonstration of "staggering power"? When paired together Ares is capable of blowing the P score of a single Ares away, even at High. Wowsers.


Yes of course we ran an Extreme test. Our Crossfire Ares setup is able to deal with Vantage at Extreme settings and spank a single card mightily. It's like the harder the going gets, the better the Ares performs.

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
