Asus Mars 760 Review: Two GPUs In SLI; One $650 Graphics Card

Results: BioShock Infinite, 2560x1440

While BioShock Infinite is an attractive-looking game, it's not particularly difficult for high-end graphics hardware to render at its top quality setting. Set to the Ultra detail preset, not a single card dropped below 48 FPS during the course of our benchmark.

With my frame rate over time chart capped at 60 FPS to focus on problematic slow-downs, there's very little to see aside from a small valley at the beginning of the sequence.

Only two Radeon HD 7950 Boost cards in CrossFire struggle a bit in our frame time variance measurement. The other cards fare well through the majority of this test.

    @AMD Radeon, everyone would like to see it, not everyone would buy it, the market knows that, there's a reason why they would rather release the dual 760 rather than a 1600$ dual 780 Ti.

    Why an i5-2550K?

    Bring on the Kepler cards already.

    I'm not sure why you would even publish this review without a 780ti in the comparison.

    It was actually disappointing that there was no regular 760 SLI in there. It would have helped to see if the Asus's solution gives better results then regular 2 760s.

    Looking at the way that various card configurations bounce around in the charts, with the ranking of cards varying from page to page, the only thing I'm taking away from this article is not to bother with dual-GPU set-ups. It seems their performance is entirely decided by how well-optimised the games are for Nvidia or AMD, and not their actual specs.

    Too high price only $30 below 780ti, it should be around $550.

    I'm confused why the 780 and 770 aren't shown here - especially since the 780 is at the same price point.

    without the gtx 780 ti, you are missing half the article, as ASUS, according to the price, was presenting this card as an alternative to the 780 ti at its price/performance. I stopped reading after the first BM.
