With only 1000 units produced, the Limited Edition graphic cards ship in a special ROG-themed case, with each card featuring a laser-etched serial number on the aluminum backplate to denote its collectible status.
The new hybrid liquid/air thermal design enables maximized performance
ARES II, a custom cooler that utilizes liquid and air cooling with a 120mm fan block that easily fits in PC cases. The card itself includes an 80mm dust-proof fan to enable added cooling for critical components such as video memory and power delivery elements, as well as resist harmful dust and debris accumulation. The new design assures continuous stability even under full load, and achieves up to 31âˆ˜C cooler operation compared to a reference GTX 690 while helping outperform said card by as much as 13%.
The card also has a 20-phase Super Alloy Power architecture, consisting of heavy duty solid state capacitors, concrete-core chokes, and MOSFETs that can withstand higher temperatures and greater stress. These further improves ARES II stability and prolong its lifespan by as much as 2.5 times compared to reference cards.
Customers may modify card parameters including core and memory speeds, fan performance, and voltages using the bundled ROG Edition GPU Tweak utility, all via a user-friendly interface. Multiple profiles for individual games and applications can also be set up, and GPU Tweak doubles as a monitoring program for keeping an eye on ARES II temperatures and power consumption levels.
The ROG ARES II is priced at RM5,599 and includes a ROG Vulcan AND Gaming Headset and AMD’s “Never Settle: Reloaded” games bundle, the CrysisÂ® 3 and BioShockÂ® Infinite.
