Hardware.info: ASUS ARES II Crossfire X review: the most extreme graphics card times two
Hardware.info takes a look at a pair of Ares II in CrossfireX, lauding its performance and giving it a Gold Award.
There is no doubt about it. The ASUS Ares II is the fastest graphics card ever created, with more than 64,000 points in 3DMark Vantage and almost 21,000 points in 3DMark 11. And that’s with a single graphics card. ASUS have proven with the Ares II that their engineers are capable of designing and developing extreme and very high-end products. The decision to use water cooling makes the Ares II even more unique, and takes the concept of dual-GPU cards to yet another level.
TechPowerUp: ASUS ROG ARES II 6144 MB Review
TechPowerUp Highly Recommends the ARES II, giving it a score of 8.9 out of 10.
The ASUS ROG ARES II is the pinnacle of this generation of graphics cards. It is based on two AMD “Tahiti” GPUs that are, each, overclocked out of the box – to clock speeds beyond those of the HD 7970 GHz Edition. Thanks to an on-board Gen3 PCI-Express bridge, it also maximizes available bus bandwidth.

Guru3D: ASUS ROG ARES II gets tested and reviewed
Guru3D gives the ARES II its Top Pick award when it tests a pair in CrossfireX
The LCS cooling, the factory overclock, the six-monitor output, the quality build makes all this a very interesting product. We do feel ASUS came very late to the market with the ARES II though, but it is without doubt the fastest R7970 based graphics card on the block. Good build quality, original cooling and top notch performance is what the ARES II offers and props to the ROG team for outing such extreme hardware, we have deep respect and bow to that.
