    ASUS Working on MARS II Dual GTX 480 Graphics Accelerator

    Brian, let's get some!

    After treating the enthusiast community to the Republic of Gamers (ROG) ARES Dual HD 5870 graphics accelerator, ASUS isn't wasting any time is designing its successor, referred to (for now) as "MARS II". This graphics accelerator uses two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 (GF100) GPUs on one board, that's right, the first dual-GPU accelerator based on GF100, which is dreaded for its thermal and electrical characteristics so much, that NVIDIA is content with having the second-fastest graphics card in the market (GTX 480), with no immediate plans of working on a dual-GPU accelerator.

    ASUS' ambitious attempt is in the design stage deep inside its R&D, where the design is in an evaluation state. The R&D gave us some exclusive pictures of the MARS II PCB to treat you with. To begin with, the card's basic design is consistent with almost every other dual-GPU NVIDIA card in recent past. There are two independent GPU systems, each with its own VRM and memory, which are interconnected by an internal SLI, and connected to the system bus by an nForce 200 bridge chip. On this card, two GF100 GPUs with the same configuration as GeForce GTX 480 (GF100-375-A3) are used, each having 480 CUDA cores, and connecting to 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory across a 384-bit wide memory interface.

    Cost aside, It's an amazing piece from the engineers at Asus.

    I would say make it pre-installed with custom waterblock.

    Wow that looks like it will be an engineering masterpiece. I agree with ottoyu34, it should def come with a water block installed. But on the other hand I am interesting in seeing what type of air cooler would be needed for that beast.. hmm.

    Yes it is quite a challenge to take on. but give it all to Asus they will take it on headfirst, it looks to be a single dvi and an hdmi with a questionable port that looks to be a mini display port. possibly a stacked Dual Dvi.
