Asus Mars

If you thought the GTX 295 was powerful, you haven’t seen the Mars yet. While the GTX 295 was basically two GTX 260s put together, the Asus Mars is two GTX 285s put together, making this potentially the fastest single-unit graphics solution today.

Only 1000 of these limited edition cards will be available, so it’s going to be difficult to get your hands on one, much less two for quad SLI usage.

The Mars uses a dual-PCB design with the heatsink sandwiched in between, just like the GTX 295. You can see a hell lot more heatpipes here, though. We just hope this thing won’t sound like a vacuum cleaner after a few hours of gaming.

Two 8-pin PCI Express power connectors will also be required, reflecting the high power demands of the Mars

Matrix Series

Graphics cards from Asus’ Matrix series were also being showcased. These feature custom heatsinks which enable faster clockspeeds.
