ASUS releases  ROG ARES Graphics Card

ASUS releases ROG ARES Graphics Card

 

The Republic of Gamers, or ROG, continues to take care of its own. As the name suggests, it is a fraternity of gamers, crafting products and tools for their peers. ROG is made up of gaming and tuning enthusiasts, and they know exactly what the community craves and appreciates. 
This tradition brought the world MARS, a huge gaming power monger with twinned, overclocked GPU cores and an excess of graphics pushing potential, all housed in a never before attempted style. ARES follows as the latest foray into unmitigated gaming exploration, pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved with finely-tuned yet raw power and an entire constellation of added features. Naturally, the ROG penchant for radical design has not gone amiss, as ARES lights up the gaming horizon with its spectacular looks. 
ROG has plenty of pioneering spirit, evinced in ARES and its brazen shattering of convention. This new graphics card deploys two already-potent Radeon HD5870 cores running at 850MHz, optimizing their joint performance for up to 32% better than reference performance to attain heavenly output fit for mythology — hence the ARES moniker. 
The astral design scheme belies overwhelming processing muscle. ARES has 3200 stream processors and a cosmic 4GB of GDDR5 RAM clocked at 1.2GHz. This is the kind of power gamers and hobbyists dream of, allowing even the most demanding applications to run fully unabridged while future-proofing for coming attractions, as it will be a long time before ARES finds itself taxed. It also serves as a superb anchor for overclocking aficionados building a benchmark machine, since the potential for tuning is enormous. 
Despite its experimental nature and mammoth processing reserve, the ARES design runs cool and quiet. A custom thermal solution assures this, with a 100mm fan that pushes six times the air mass described by reference. ROG has also implemented on ARES the recent ASUS move towards copper in cooling, slapping two outsized oxygen-free, all-copper heatsinks and no less than eight 8mm copper heat sinks on the board. 
Combined, these guarantee ARES can banish scorching temps in its pursuit of reality-defining speed and performance — something eager overclockers are sure to embrace. 
Noise is kept to a minimum with the synced fan blades and balanced fittings to eliminate vibration. Users can enjoy the performance offered here without having to worry about noisy distractions.
No cuts, no downsizing, no compromise, and no nasty heat-related mishaps. ARES is the epitome of the hardcore gamer’s creed, mixing the best of many dimensions. 
It’s likewise a feat of design, with a look harking back to ROG’s first dual GPU release. ARES takes this approach and upscales it for the new decade, showcasing its prodigious power in a futuristic package that’s sure to become a much-vaunted collectible. This last point is aided by the fact that ROG is releasing ARES as a special limited edition, only available while supplies last.
