ASUS ROG MARS 2 Review

3Screen - FarCry 2, Witcher 2, Metro 2033

ASUS ROG MARS 2 Review

Far Cry 2

Of the two cards we've tested on this setup both can easily handle Far Cry 2 in such extreme resolutions. Certainly if Far Cry 2 is the game for you then the MARS 2 out-performs a HD6990.

The Witcher 2

Another game where we've currently got limited data is The Witcher 2. The MARS 2 can make even the Uber Sampling mode playable giving us just over 50 FPS. Moving onto three screens things take a hit as we'd expect. You probably need two of these to make it remotely playable, and this punishing requirement that means it's likely to be in our test suite for a long time to come.

Metro 2033

Finishing up with Metro 2033 the MARS 2 finally seems to be making strides as it's up there with an SLI GTX590 setup.

Thanks for a good and thorough review.

Agreed preformance is disappointing but I think the damn thing looks like it's been in a fender bender with that 3 slot grill and the sloping fan cover. It just looks wrong.Quote

I have not watched the videos yet, but I did skim read the written review. Saw the price, and realised this card is more expensive than my entire rig. If I was the type of person who had enough money to just throw around, I still wouldn't get this card.Quote

Brilliant review of an overpriced card. I've seen these cards going for upto £1500 on Ebay.Quote
