Asus RoG Mars Quad SLI Review

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Asus Republic of Gamers Mars. It’s the fastest and most expensive consumer graphics card in the world.

Ho-hum...until the drivers catch up, what's the point of 1000 quid on a graphics card?

As the writer said though, the folding scores are uncanny in SLI. But then again, that would be 2000 quid.

Never mind.

Quids are high vs the Yankee dollar. $1698 needed for this less than perfect Vidcard. Ouch!

Arrow

I read the review & they were less than impressed with the gaming performance of this card.

You'd think by looking at the spec it would be outstanding, but it's comparable to a ATi 4870 x2 at a fraction of the cost.

But it does look really cool...
