Asus has informed us that the card can outperform the GTX Titan, running Crysis 3 percent to 14 percent faster, Tomb Raider 39 percent faster, and Bioshock Infinite 6 percent faster.

Why the hell would they release a dual gpu as a mid-range card? I don't see this costing less than $400-$500 anyway. With limited VRAM and low bandwidth this gpu is gimped.

I also find it amusing that they keep on going on about it being a bit faster than a Titan. Well the Titan isn't a gpu meant for gaming to begin with and there are single gpu solutions that are already better or at least match that gpu for half the price now anyway.

I'm sure its a great card, and a good performer, but its just....useless.

There's really no reason to slap two 760s on the same card. ROG is suppose to be innovative and deliver the absolute best performance with the MARS and ARES graphic cards. This card will be very limited in multi-monitor setups and with 2gb of mirrored ram, isn't exactly future proof.

It's nice and all and looks amazing, but why? Why waste the resources slapping two 760s together?

Do dual GPU cards work on boards that don't support SLI? Any mitx board basically. If it's compatible with them and priced reasonably I could see it being alright for a SFF build. If its only one or the other though I don't see it being worthwhile, if it's much over $400 you may as well buy a 290 or 780. Since I don't see it costing $350 or less ($450-500 wouldn't surprise me at all) it's not something I'd ever use.

They lost a lot of money with the ARES II, so they're cutting corners on this one. and who knows, it may do quite well. 760 sli's are underwhelming as far as most standards go, but it may have a niche.

Wasnt the whole point in mars/ares cards to be better than the ultra high end?

They do. Dual GPU cards are not SLI but rather two GPU chips stacked into a single card, they are not a direct replacement to multiple graphic cards solutions but rather an alternative. Actually dual GPU cards are nothing new, some manufacturers before ASUS have already manufactured and marketed them before even during the Pentium 4 era.
