The asus ares dual hd5870,

the radeon hd 5970 dual-gpu graphics card uses the same gpus but clocked at 725 mhz each; the new asus ares card takes the combined 3200 stream processors and runs them at full speed: 850 mhz out of the box. the heatsinks are now built out of oxygen-free 8mm heatpipes, the fan is both quiet at low speeds and capable of high airflow, the enclosure is easy to disassemble, the card is software voltage and frequency mod-able, etc. asus even claims that the new ares card produces less noise than the reference design hd 5970 using lower power and lower frequency gpus at a basic load and under idle conditions. in my testing this was very much the case though the fan on the ares can definitely pump out some volume if you crank it up!

Each Radeon HD 5870 GPU has access to 2GB of frame buffer for a total of 4GB of GDDR5 memory running at 4.8 GHz. The clock speed on the GPUs is 850 MHz though ASUS leaves plenty of room for overclocking with this car
When you spend this kind of cash on a PC component, you deserve more than a cardboard box and anti-static bag.

The box for this card is unbelievably huge; note the SSD sitting in front of it for scale.

A fancy briefcase is inside the box and holds the graphics card and other goodies.

Popping it open reveals the well-packed and tightly held in place ARES card along with the extras ASUS includes with it.

The documentation includes an ARES "story book" as well as drivers, quick start guide and instructions on how to change the combination on your new luggage ...more
