Asus Launches The Dual-GPU ROG MARS 760 Graphics Card
Asus ROG has just launched the MARS 760, a fully-custom designed card powered by two GTX 760 GPUs.
This means that enthusiasts can build a quad SLI setup using two PCI-Express slots.
The GTX 760 still has 1,152 CUDA cores, which together gives it 2,304, essentially entering the Nvidia Titan territory.
The board has essential ROG design-traits, such as the soft-touch rubber paint against anodized aluminum, red pulsating MARS light you can see through your case window and a dual-slot design.
DirectCU technology is still core to the design - with two fans, two heatsinks and eight heatpipes keeping the GTX 760 cores cool. Underneath there?s a frame that doubles-up as a heatspreader for the VRMs and memory. The long card is further braced on the back side ? and to protect the additional components - with an aluminium bracket.
The 12-phase DIGI+ VRM design has Super Alloy Power hardware and (Nichicon GT-series) Black Metallic Caps, providing longer life/harder wearing components. On the backside there are over a dozen super-low noise POSCAPs.
This powers both GTX 760 cores that run at up to 1,072MHz and the 4GB (2GB per GPU) GDDR5 memory running at 6GHz (effective). These are connected to the PLX PCI-Express 3.0 switch, providing the maximum throughput to the PCI-Express 16x connection.
According to Asus, between 3DMark 11, and popular games such as Bioshock Infinite, Crysis 3, and Tomb Raider, the MARS 760 scores between 6% to 14% faster than its Titan brethren.
