Shortly after Computex 2011 started, first wave of pics filled the internet with the latest news on technological novelties. This includes MARS II, a unique graphic card by Asus combining two GF110 chips on a single board.
Black-n-red color theme is traditional for all ROG series products. The card is cooled by exclusive daul-section heatsink with heatpipes passing though it, while two 120mm fans blow the hot air away. Overall, the card occupies three slots inside a case.
So far, it is confirmed ASUS MARS II to have 3GB of GDDR5 memory connected to GPUs via 384-bit interfaces. GPU power supply is arranged through 19-phase design circuit.
To fully reveal the potential, ASUS MARS II requires three 8-pin PCI-e connectors providing a total of 450W of additional power.
It is rumored for ASUS MARS II to have two full-fledged GPUs, operating at same clock rates as GTX 580, which should bring high chances for great overclock.
