PC Perspective published several photos of a production sample of the ASUS ARES, this is an upcoming custom-design graphics card with two slightly overclocked Radeon HD 5870 GPUs and 4GB GDDR5 memory. The ASUS ARES is expected to be available within a month or two, and will cost a lot of money.
With a score of more than 28.4k on the GPU result in a quick run of 3DMark Vantage, the ASUS ARES dual HD 5870 graphics card is easily the fastest single card we have ever tested! For comparison, the GeForce GTX 480 scored 17,287 while the stock Radeon HD 5970 (dual HD 5850s essentially) scored 21,111. Obviously with a CPU score of 24,920 ASUS has an overclocked CPU at work, but for GPU score comparisons, this gives the ARES a 34% performance advantage over any other single card available.
