ASUS Ares Review

Crossfire Gaming

Crysis Warhead

Finally a little gaming goodness. Trust Crysis to be completely incapable of taking advantage of the four GPUs we have at our disposal here. We thought we'd be able to see bananas frame-rates, and yet the one game that needs them ignores the extra card.


Dirt 2

Dirt 2 has no such problems with the twin Ares absolutely ripping through the game. It's not often we wish that there was something higher than Ultra, but the Ares just eats Dirt 2 for breakfast.


Stalker Pripyat

Stalker is one of the poster-boy DirectX 11 games using all sorts of visual trickery to give a very sumptuous experience. Clearly the Ares Crossfire laughs in the face of sumptuous graphics, providing 200FPS average. What more can be said?

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
