Asus Mars GTX 295 8GB SLI Runs Far Cry 2 2160p

Have the need for speed? Check out the Asus Mars GTX 295, which its maker claims to be the fastest video card on the planet at the current moment. It set the world record in 3DMark with a score of X25057 just before Computex, and now it’s basking in all its glory at the show.

Asus had these running Far Cry 2 at the show at a mind (and monitor) blowing resolution of 3840 x 2160. Put two of them together for a quad-SLI setup with 8 GB of graphics memory.

We haven’t gotten one in our labs yet, but we hope to soon. Until then, check out our GTX 295 vs. GTX 275 comparison.

    3840 x 2160? I'll be content upgrading to 1920 x 1080 :)
    I would love to see what 2160p look like though...

    Man, that's insane. Well if you can afford it why not. Even so it will probably be outclassed by 40nm and 32nm DX11 solutions in a few months.

    Can it play Crysis?

Nvidia and ATI don't usually release dual GPU cards at launch. GTX 380 or what not need to be twice as fast as GTX 285 to beat this card.

    I believe the correct term is QFHD, not 2160p, and the monitors need four cable connections to display that resolution.

I know its not exactly the same as a dual GPU board, but the principal is the same.
