    Default ASUS Releases Limited Edition ROG ARES II with New Hybrid Thermal Design

    Released today, the limited edition ASUS ROG ARES II is the fastest graphics card on the planet. Strictly limited to 1000 units and supplied in an exclusive ROG themed case, it’s sure to generate some serious envy.



    Packing Dual HD 7970 GHz Edition GPUs with 6GB GDDR5, the ARES II ensures an unbeatable frame rate, coupled with a hybrid thermal design to keep the card amazingly stable in even the most demanding conditions. It combines revolutionary liquid and air cooling for super-efficient heat removal from the GPUs and card’s key components, while fitting neatly into a common 120mm fan mount.. The cooler’s design allows it to achieve temperatures some 31∘C cooler than those of a reference GeForce GTX 690 card, while matching the same, compact two-slot mount. This also saves you the need, risk and time of finding and installing separate liquid cooling blocks onto your card. Whereas the ROG MATRIX range is made for overclockers to squeeze the very last drop of performance from of a single GPU core, the ARES is made to absolutely maximize the out-the-box performance with an ease of setup, avoiding the need to invest energy and cost in additional cooling or technical knowledge.






    The ARES II comes packed with DIGI+ VRM and 20-phase Super Alloy Power for improved stability, longevity, and increased overclocking headroom. You can also manually monitor the cards power profiles using the GPU Tweak utility.
    Now you see why it takes ROG to do the HD 7990 right.
    Hit the PR button below to read the official words and specs. We’ll have more CES coverage over the next few days, and keep an eye out for ARES II reviews on your favorite sites!

    I'm sure it will be at least $1500 because it's a limited production card. I want it but won't ever have one. It's totally badass, but I will be happy with two 7970's once my second one gets here.

    However, the VRM is still air cooled. When its voltage increase so as its temperature.
    The obvious is not convenience to use two of these for crossfire due to the radiator.

    These already 2x 7970 on one card, I think these were intended to be used as single card in a system. But It would def. be interesting to see someone throw 2 of these together for Quad Crossfire.
