Default ASUS to introduce Dual-Fermi on Computex 2010?

ASUS to introduce Dual-Fermi on Computex 2010?

Earlier today, Muropaketti leaked details about Asus'es "Shanghai Surprise" for the next weeks' tradeshow of the year. On CeBIT 2010, ASUS will introduce Republic of Gamers HD5970 Ares. This board is designed to show engineering excellence as demonstrated by its previous siblings, such as the GTX 285 Mars.

ASUS Republic of Gamers HD5970 Ares: Dual GPU and 4GB GDD5 are limited in only 1000 pieces. Picture credit: MuropakettiROG HD5970 Ares features two Cypress GPUs clocked at 850MHz - yes, just like GTX 285 Mars, both GPUs are clocked to the level of single-GPU cards, unlike GTX295 and HD5970 who both feature much lower clocks than their single-GPU siblings.

Ares also packs 4GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.2 GHz QDR [4.8 GT/s], meaning that a combined bandwidth of the whole board is staggering 307.2 GB/s, i.e. 50GB/s faster than a stock clocked HD5970 [256GB/s]! These numbers are nothing short of staggering.

Given our natural curiosity, we asked our sources at ASUS is there a chance to see a Dual-GT300/GF100/Fermi based board on Computex Taipei 2010. As you might imagine, we expected an answer in the lines of "no comment," "wait and see," or something similar. Instead, we received one quite interesting answer: "Hopefully. They [we take this refers to ASUS Engineering team] didn't got farther than engineering drawings."

Yes, we know the sentence isn't exactly correct in English, so grammar police can rest here. What can't rest is our interest in Asus'es engineering team and the work they'll obviously have to do in order to create a dual-Fermi GPU based board.

Can ASUS GTX 285 Ares get a worthy successor in a form of Dual GTX 480 board? ASUS certainly plans so

IF ROG HD5970 Ares is anything to go by, we shouldn't be surprised to either see a repeat of Ares'es power configuration with two 8-pin and one 6-pin PEG connector, or we might even see a triple or quad 8-Pin connectors on a single PCB. Yes, this sounds absolutely crazy - then again, why not if there are only 1000 pieces being made?

I don't see where anything references that there will be a dual fermi by Asus....headline is bull**** and misleading.

More like "ASUS won't build a dual Fermi for computex"

How the hell do you get from the above to this:

And since there is no such thing as the ARES GTX 285....it's MARS for nV and ARES for ATI and in case anyone is wondering about the references they are both the same ancient God of war....ARES=Greek Mars=roman.


EDIT:

The reference to the GTX 285 Ares has been removed from the original article, anyone wanna google cache it?

Thanks for posting this, as always BSN= Full of BS....they should get a server with semiaccurate that way all the crap can be in one polarized location.

I think the line "It never got farther than engineering..." pretty much says no.
