I'm no more likely to buy an Ares, or any of the other recent uber expensive graphics cards, than anybody else on this forum.

More like the difference between a Skyline GTR and Lexus LFA: Price and exclusivity.

Maybe so Prosser, but you see it all the time with all sorts of products.

Cars is the first thing that came into my head as a comparison.

You got cars that can go fast and are pretty expensive (Aston Martin, most ferraris, etc) similar to high end GFX.

Then you get your insanely expensive extremely limited edition cars which are not all that much faster really like Koenigsegg, McLaren, etc.

Just coz people like ourselves wouldn't be likely to buy 1, let alone 2, Ares GFX primarily for financial reasons, doesn't mean that Asus shouldn't bother making it and that there won't be people out there who can easily afford it and will buy it because they can.

I'm no more likely to buy an Ares, or any of the other recent uber expensive graphics cards, than anybody else on this forum.

But I like to know that they're out there and I also like to know their performance stats so I can be all smug if I happen to have similar performance results from a much cheaper, although heavily overclocked, option.


At least with the far more expensive cars you get a bunch more features even if they aren't necessary - this has one more feature, which is that it is two 5870s on one card. The cooler is hardly innovative, and for the price the only person I can ever see buying one is someone who really wants twin 5870s but has a tiny case and a hell of a lot of money :P
