Um, no it isn't... That would be four GPU's on the same card.. not for a few years son.

The MARS is effectively 2 gtx285's on one board instead of the under clocked 275's on the stock 295.

Also, nvidia has SLI, ati has crossfire.

Whats the need of that much memory........... It surely help in maxing out everything...even the PhysX at max. ... even cards with 1GB could do that task... then why spend money for it...

I'm guessing you're a, "more than a handful is a waste" kind of man...
 


each gpu has 2GB which is enough for 30" 2560x1600 monitors with full AA/AF on

Rather keep this in secret. :lol:
what a moron will spend ~$3500 for a Graphics that are slower than 4x GTX285 OCed (costing nearly half) !?

You moron, you cannot have more than 3x GTX285(4x GTX285 = nonsense).

The Asus GeForce GTX 295 Mars is 23% faster than the standard GTX295.

Now go play Tetris with your pathetic HD 4870 :D :D :D :D

I hope you are joking, because validating successful_troll like that is gonna make him double in power and annoyance. Just like feeding him after midnight.

Beyond that, I'm sure you are joking as no one would admit to actually wanting to buy one of those in a serious point..

hell, if I hit the lottery, I'd buy 2 of them. Then it'd be no biggie to blow 35 hundred tho. With a real job, no way 275 for me.

About me looking at putting 2 of these in my system. No it was not a joke just can not find a place that has them and not preorder. I currently have 3 xfx gtx 285 black editions in my computer and want more and 2 mars would do it. Crysis is still not fast enough for me.

/facepalm ...... your money


Since we are all having so much fun with these overpriced things.. I reserve the right to refer to you as a spoiled rich ****wit for the rest of time if you actually purchase them.

I wouldn't even use em if I got them for free. Obviously the logical thing to do would be to sell them and but a triple SLI/Crossfire liquid cooled beast of a machine and overclock it till my eyes bleed.

I will spare the logical critique of your person and or soul as I'm still pretty sure we are all joking.

**Edit, the curse filter needs to stop cutting half my post out when it tries to correct my potty mouth... you American's live by the sensor way too much..**

yeaah, 23% faster and 320% more expensive!
As I couldnt find any benches of 3xGTX285 (clocked to ~700Mhz) to compare with 2xGTX295 mars ed. I'm pretty sure that the difference will not be more than few procents, as we know that 4 GPUs are not scaling that good as 3 GPUs do.
So 3x superclocked GTX285 will cost you ~£800, still £200 less than single AsusGTX295 and will be alot more faster.
I realy want to see some benches of superclocked 3x GTX285 compared to 2x Asus GTX295 (leave 3D mark alone, as we do NOT play on 3D mark. :lol: )

as for my 4870, I can play tetris with it, because it is cheap as brick. And a year after I bought it, it still maxing out my games and keeps me happy :bounce:

Yes I could build another system similar to what I have now for the same price and in all reality I probably would not go that route. But I am looking at wc setups for my current system. That will probably be around 1k to support all the hardware. I want to get over 4 stable with my i7.

2x GTX295(the generic GTX295 NOT Asus Mars) are faster than the 3xGTX285 in crysis at list. Now imagine the difference with the 2x Asus GTX295 Mars against the 3xGTX285.

in what resolution you can max everything, in 320x240? :lol:
