I missed this video card that was announced during CeBIT from ASUS... Looks amazing:

Incredible Power – Redefining the standard for graphics performance
Graphics cards are the frontier of PC gaming, and the Republic of Gamers goes where none have ventured before with the limited-edition ARES. A card unique in design and in performance, it possesses dual Radeon HD5870 GPUs and 4GB of GDDR5 RAM for up to a 23% performance improvement over the class leading Radeon HD5970.

As such, ARES is a limited production run product designed for users needing premium performance in a PC gaming machine. The custom fan design increases airflow by up to 600% compared to reference 5870 boards, yet ARES is decidedly quieter in operation.

Looks sleek, though a little like a toy.

I hope the cooling is as good as they claim. A custom waterblock for a non-reference card would cost an arm and a leg.

what special in this graphics card nothing

Expect the only two thing

1 is Dual Graphics GPU on single card what special about this now a days soo many game physo use more then 2 or three graphics card on single PC ok now they release this card and memory upto 4 GB what will the user do they will use this one card or what definitely not they use more than one card and connect then into SLI


Second is more expensive ok for example i buy this card means day after tomorrow a new graphics card will be released that card is about 4 GPU on single card what is this give a break for techonology and for user too , to settle them current technology and use it throw and buy a new one

The only things i know from this if buyer willing to buy means the manufacture idiot ready cheat the buyer


Nothing Good waste of money that's all :snakeman:
