Birth of a Legend

ARES comes from the Greek god of war, a fierce character noted for battle-hardened dedication. The ARES graphics card, continuing the legacy of its NVIDIA-based peer MARS, evokes this image, charging ahead loaded for bear and never giving up the fight no matter how demanding the game. Ordinary packaging wouldn’t cut it with this mythological card – so we went all out, creating a unique look and feel that begins the hardcore experience right at the moment of purchase.
