The ares isn't going to be much better than two overclocked 3GB 580s.
Its single PCB and cooling solution is going to rival two well OCed 580s with their own coolers.

If you compare stock to stock, maybe, by just a little, due to single PCB vs two.
But OCed wise, two 580s are going to do much better.

The advantage of the ARES is one super-power-house card. Its a nice e-peen booster, but real-world, the same as the previous ARES (the dual 5870s), it isn't going to be much better.
