2 of them seem to have broken a world record?

Gizmodo - ASUS Mars GTX 295 Smoothly Running Far Cry at 3840 x 2160 Pixels - ASUS Mars GTX 295

Its also easily the coolest looking GTX 295 I have seen to date, actually id call it one of the coolest looking cards ive seen period. To bad their only making 1000 of them >.<.

haha, nice piece of engineering.

Who wants to make bets that the gtx395 will make this card cry. In 4 months this card is going to be outperformed by the next gen.

Theres no saying the 3xx series is coming out in 4 months, they havent even leeked any previews yet ;)

Im sure quite a few people collect cards like this, 4 x GTX 285s is pretty beasty for anyone whos in to benchmark records. estimated 23% faster then the reference GTX 295s is a pretty decent leap in performance.

Might as well because it's priced way up there

I think the thread above needs to be incorporated with this one.
