ASUS Shows Mars GTX 295 SLI Running Far Cry 2 @ 3820 x 2160Category: Video Cards

It was last week that we first heard that ASUS would be launching the limited edition MARS GTX 295 graphics card, with a huge 4GB of RAM and 2 x GTX 285 GPUs. At Computex this week, it has been showing a demo with two of the cards hooked up in SLI (that's 8GB of RAM!) running Far Cry 2 at a whopping 3820 x 2160 resolution. It has also set a new 3DMark Vantage record with the cards, coming in with a score of X25949. While the horsepower of a couple of these cards in SLI may have the die hard gamers reading this drooling, it is a limited edition card and will likely be pretty hard (and one would imagine, certainly expensive) to get hold of. ASUS will be producing only 1000 of the cards; each one coming with a unique serial number. You can watch a video of the demo in action over at TweakTown.
