ASUS launches ROG ARES II graphics card

Perhaps as a response to NVIDIA’s launch of the GeForce GTX Titan the Taiwanese ASUS has started the sales of another 3D graphics monster – the dual-GPU ROG ARES II-6GD5 graphics card.

The new graphics card is based on two AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition graphics chips and 6 GB of GDDR5 memory. The cores run at 1050 MHz (1100 MHz in Turbo mode) while the graphics memory works at 6600 MHz. Due to the amount of heat dissipated the ROG ARES II-6GD5 comes with a dual-slot cooling solution that bets on both air and liquid cooling. Other features include DVI-I, DVI-D and Display Port outputs.

As expected such a graphics card needs a lot of power and this is the reason why the ROG ARES II-6GD5 comes with a 20-phase power system including three 8-pin power connectors. The heat and power consumption also require high-quality components and ASUS delivers – it uses Super Alloy Chokes, Super Alloy Capacitors and Super Alloy MOS in the ROS ARES II.

ASUS claims the 3D card is the fastest one in the world at the moment beating the GeForce GTX Titan and the GeForce GTX 690 by 13 percent. Such performance is expensive though – the price of the ROG ARES II-6GD5 is EUR 1287.
