One huge box was delivered and ASUS decided to release the product with a little extra bang alright. Inside the packaging, a security case can be found, it's like a James Bond spy kit.
And there it is -- The ASUS ARES. Well packaged inside the security case. Along with it also a funky mouse and all the necessities like Crossfire cable and adapters.
Here we have the card unpackaged. Do not let the photo fool you, that is one big card right there. And not just that, it weighs one and a half kilograms or something close to that as well. It's definitely a looker though. Nice design, black PCB, the ROG style coloring styling, I like it.
If you like to be a proud owner, we definitely like to hint you to an ATX full-tower with enough clearance for this card. The card is very long at 30CM / 12 in. Look at that cooling block right there, that's all copper baby.
And yes in case you are wondering, that is eating three PCI slots per card due to the cooling design.
