Asus announced today that its limited edition multiple GPU video card called the ROG Mars is coming to America as well. The card was first seen by Guru3D at Computex 2009 and will be sold in limited numbers (1000 pieces) on a first come, first served basis. The card is based on the NVIDIA GTX 295 reference design and has a pair of GTX 285 GPUs crammed into the single, dual slot video card.
Asus claims that the Mars is 23% more powerful than conventional GTX 295 video cards and has an improved thermal design that adds 65% more heat pipe coverage. That additional heat pipe coverage equates to 20% better cooling. The card has 4GB of GDDR3 RAM and the core clock is 648Mhz, shader clock is 1476MHz, and the memory clock is 2.304 GHz. Only 1,000 of the limited edition cards will be made. Reports claim the cards will sell for about $1,000~$1200 each with similar prices in EUR.
Our honest advise .. dude just get a GTX 295.
