Is asus lying or i cant believe that?

asus has claimed that the new vga ARES II with 6gb memory and a liquid cooling system is 13% faster than gtx 690 and 130% faster than hd 7970

it has 768 bit memory interface and 6600 mhz memory clock

More about asus lying that
  1. It's probably true
  2. yeah, it is basically 2 overclocked 7970s on a single board, 1100MHz vs 925 on the basic 7970...
  3. They probably setup scenarios that would give them the biggest advantages over the other cards... But i doubt they lied about the numbers... just don't expect that to be the case in all situations.
  4. It is true

  6. wow then
  7. Those stats are basically comparing their card - a factory overclocked card to other cards at stock speeds... If you over clocked the other two cards you would see closer to 0% +-5% performance over the GTX 690 and ~100% +-5% improvement over a 7970 (as it should due to the fact that all it is is basically 2 7970's in CF).
  8. Talking about two 7970s, CrossFireX doesn't allow utilization of the VRAM on both cards but this has 6Gb on one card, that is a nice bonus too.

    nope, it is still just 3GB per GPU, (6 in total if you want to calculate it like that)...

    I believe they list it like that to fool people into assuming that it can use the full 6gb. I believe it is really 3gb on each card with each card having 384 bit bus... they just add them up and call them the specs. That is exactly what nvidia has done with their GTX 690 as well.
