Feeling rather nosey in recent days, we took a look at the latest Catalyst beta drivers (10.3a) and found some interesting additions. Yes, that’s the Asus Ares hidden amongst the goods.
Out of curiosity, we took apart the latest installment of beta Catalyst just to see what AMD has up its sleeves. The Asus Ares “monster,” which has already gained legendary status before hitting the shelves, turned up in this copy of 10.3a Catalyst.
Of course we did not find any Asus product brochure for the Ares hidden in here, but the “DEV_689C” device ID used by the Ares is shared with the Radeon HD 5900 series.
It sure ain’t bad for Asus, having official driver support for a deviant design.
