ASUS Mars Graphics Card - GTX 295 on Steroids

Just saw this over at Engadget:

We knew it was coming, and come it did. Over in Taiwan today, ASUS was demonstrating its motherboard-incinerating Mars graphics card, which it proudly deemed "the world's fastest." In fact, the card packs 21 percent more power than a reference GeForce GTX 295 card, and the eight-heatpipe cooling solution keeps things at least a notch below molten. We found that the card will actually be sold in some capacity, though only 1,000 of them -- all of which will be individually numbered -- will be made available.

that's like asking if it will run the original Doom lol. I had a 280 that ran it on ultra just fine with a 1680*1050 res when I had it. I'd be playin it now if Vista64 SLi and Doom3 didn't have issues
