If you can find an ASUS ROG MARS II Limited Edition card for sale, without having to buy the whole system that is, you would have a pair of GTX580 class GPUs on a single PCB. That is hard, but not [H]ard enough for a certain hardware review site. They decided that the only way to satisfy their overwhelming graphics lust was to get two cards, giving them the power of quad SLI in just two cards. That might seem a little greedy when only 999 of these cards were produced but there is only one way to utter graphical domination … until you realize the competition is a pair of HD6990s. Either way you will be seeing over 70fps in Battlefield 3 at a resolution of 5760×1200. You will need more than a 1000W PSU to run stable but you will be able to laugh at those poor GTX590 owners.
"The ASUS ROG MARS II Limited Edition video card brings true dual-GeForce GTX 580 GPUs to the table. Take two of these and you can have a true GTX 580 Quad-SLI system. We’ll dive into performance, including Battlefield 3, and see what these can do directly compared to 4-way CrossFireX."

Just as with the evga Ryan
Just as with the evga Ryan reviewed the other day, this monster of a card is hampered by a relatively small amount of effective (not actual total) memory.
VRAM limitation fail… I’d
VRAM limitation fail… I’d rather have 3 x 3GB GTX 580s than 2 x MARS II
Yes but the obvious question
Yes but the obvious question remains. Can it run Crysis? 😛
All that card just to run
All that card just to run “pc” games designed for 6 year old console hardware. Waste. Of. Money.
I’d love one, 10 years ago it
I’d love one, 10 years ago it was AGP video cards. Well they are still coming out, but they are outdated tech. We need to keep going forward. More give me more!
