Limited Edition. Unlimited Power

ASUS Exclusive Innovation

ROG ARES II brings back otherworldly graphics might with dual Radeon™ HD 7970 GHz Edition GPUs and a massive 6GB GDDR5, all in a standard 2-slot height. The fastest card available, it introduces hybrid air and liquid cooling for relentless stability. Its power is controlled by DIGI+ VRM and Super Alloy Power components, with easy GPU Tweak card tuning

The Performance King
13% faster than GTX 690. 130% faster than HD 7970
Twin HD 7970 GPUs provide the fastest graphics performance of any card currently on the market. Its 6GB GDDR5 video memory means smooth high-count framerates in any PC game available or forthcoming in the near future.

Hybrid Air/Liquid Thermal Design
31°C cooler performance than reference GTX 690
All-new innovation cools the world’s fastest graphics card, which fits in a 2-slot height. Dedicated liquid cooling for the dual GPUs joins a dust-proof fan that dissipates heat from critical components to knock temps down and increase stability.

DIGI+ VRM with 20-phase Super Alloy Power
Precise digital control enhances performance, reliability, and card longevity
ARES2-6GD5 is built with carefully-designed massive 20-phase power delivery, unmatched by any other graphics card for the ultimate in performance and spectacular power delivery. This ensures ample room for experimental performance tuning, as its DIGI+ VRM digital voltage regulation design augments precision overclocking capabilities, which are further supported by the use of hardened Super Alloy Power capacitors, chokes, and MOSFETs. These components are forged under extreme pressure and temperatures to increase reliability, power output, and overall card lifespan while eliminating bothersome choke buzzing noise, unlike much tamer reference cards. All these and more enable the absolute best in overclocking potential and experience.
