Default Asus ARES Video Cards - CrossFire [Video]

Saw this while on another forum and just thought of showing it here as well. Now that is a huge card. About $1750 canadian No actual CrossFire in this video, but there are TWO cards.

YouTube - Asus Ares WORLD FIRST HANDS ON

One is definitly paying a lot for the boxing...

he said "2x 5870s"... So this is a Super-Overclocked 5970 with a cool heatsink, briefcase, and a mouse?

5970 lacks more than just clock speed over 2x5870's

No its a dual 5870 GPU two 5870's on one PCB I believe, that is very expensive when you can buy two 5970's for cheaper

I wouln't even consider this...way too expensive anyway.
I'd take two vanilla 5870 in crossfire...or even two 5970s.

There are only 1000 being made, so really, they are like a collectors item. But who really collects computer equipment? It only looses value through time...
