I would love to see pics of that 7,680 x 1,440 setup :D

Insane price tag for an insane product.

Simon! Your cards are ready!

''Not only that, but while it's dependent on driver support, our testing demonstrates quite clearly that it is currently the fastest consumer graphics card on the planet, and that's something we're sure will entice 1,000 rich (and crazy) people to splash some serious cash.''

Not with the new Titan coming out.

Would be interesting to see how these uber cards deal with ubersampling in the Witcher 2 as they are the cards the developers had in mind when they introduced this feature.

I wonder how fast Bitcoin mining would go on that setup...

I hate to be a pain, but it really annoys me that there's no full stop at the end of the first paragraph of the conclusion.

Haha! I've given up on Dual GPU cards after the problems with the HD5970.

I prefer multiple cards, due to less limitation when OCing, and of cause reaching the maximum PCIe bandwidth, which I'm sure the Ares II has reached! :)

BTW - Loving the testing @ 7680x1440 Bit-Tech! :D

We all know Skyrim was never properly developed for SLI/CFX support, so I wasn't expecting it to scale well in those test setups! :)

This has to be the ultimate willy waving product (love that phrase, I'll use it more often), if there is a more blatant case of WW I don't think I won't to hear about it.

Still not fast enough to make it anything other than a scam ;)

That is just insane. If its true that there wont be any new GPU's coming from AMD in the high end level I am glad to see Asus is making some progress for AMD products.

As practical as driving a Lamborghini, everyday to work at the local shoe factory...

But nevertheless, I'd like to spend 5 minutes just touching the card in all the improper places!

Obscene....in a good way.

OK, OK, you know that I meant three of those things in CrossFire (if it's even possible).

On second thought, as Shirty said, there should be a server board out there that could fit four of them ... Volunteers, anyone ...

My god that must have been so fun to benchmark for you people at Bit-tech.

Only a single CrossFire bridge on each card, so you couldn't do it even if you did have three. It was pretty awesome doing the 7,680 x 1,440 tests though :D

Two cards and you could run your own weather simulations in real-time...assuming the drivers work :D
