The new ROG MARS II picks up where previous graphics card powerhouses from ASUS ROG left off, and continues the legacy of the finest hardware for hardcore gamers. The limited-edition card is built on twin NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 580 GPUs and a mammoth 3GB of GDDR5 video memory, with a proprietary ROG design that combines extreme cooling and extensive tuning facilities that cater to the most demanding power user. It also offers colossal pixel-pushing output that is unmatched by any graphics card.

Massive dual GPU power? 22% faster performance than reference
The super-powered ROG MARS II reaches new peaks of performance — it runs 22% faster than a reference GeForce® GTX 590 and offers tremendous potential. Its launch comes at a very opportune time for dedicated PC gamers, since it will be followed by the arrival this fall of several high-profile games that promise genuine next generation graphics with next generation hardware. The ROG MARS II has so much power it will be able to easily run all native DirectX® 11 games in resolutions higher than 1080p and detail settings at their maximum levels. Its twin GeForce® GTX 580 cores and 3GB of superfast GDDR5 video memory translate into the superlative performance that gamers are always seeking, representing a new benchmark in graphics dominance

The extreme coolant on top of the card designed by ASUS is crap. It takes up an extra slot, making it 3 slots. It just makes things harder to SLI and takes up wayyy too much space than needed. I would rather stick to my hydro coppers. :/
