ASUS ROG MARS 2 Review

3Screen - Crysis Warhead & Crysis 2

ASUS ROG MARS 2 Review

Of course if you've got a grand to splash out on a graphics card it would be pointless not to push it to the limits with a triple screen setup, so the next couple of pages are extreme testing levels.

Crysis Warhead

Once again the MARS 2 isn't quite giving the scores we'd hope to see. When it's just keeping up with a GTX590 we can't help but feel a little disappointed. It's stunning performance for sure, but it isn't re-writing what's possible.

Crysis 2

Utilising the insane levels of eye-candy available from v1.9 of Crysis 2 and the Hi-Res texture pack we really have a feast for the eyes. Surprisingly the MARS 2 is even further behind the GTX590 than it was in Warhead, being 4 FPS behind on average and a whopping 11 lower at minimum.

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
