ASUS ROG Announces Mars 760 Graphics Card
ASUS ROG has announced the Mars 760 graphics card which features two GeForce GTX 760 GPUs for superior gaming performance.
With game performance that's up to 14% faster overall, the Mars 760 outpaces even the GeForce GTX Titan. It runs Bioshock Infinite 6% faster and increases performance of both Crysis 3 and Tomb Raider by 14%. Mars 760 is a two-slot card that’s packed with many exclusive ASUS technologies including DirectCU II for 20% cooler and quieter operation, DIGI+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) for ultra-stable power delivery and GPU Tweak, an easy-to-use utility that lets users push the two GTX 760 GPUs to extremes.
Combined with 4GB of GDDR5 video memory Mars 760 pumps visuals with incredibly high frame rates and no stutter, ensuring extremely smooth gameplay — even at resolutions as high as 2560 x 1600. Exclusive DirectCU II technology puts eight highly-conductive copper cooling pipes in direct contact with both GPUs. These pipes provide extremely efficient cooling — Mars 760 runs 20% cooler and vastly quieter than reference GeForce GTX 690 cards. Dual 90mm dust-proof fans provide six times greater airflow than reference design.
Mars 760 is equipped with ROG’s acclaimed DIGI+ voltage-regulation module (VRM), featuring a 12-phase power design that reduces power noise by 30% and enhances efficiency by 15%. It also widens voltage-modulation tolerance and improves overall stability and longevity — by two-and-a-half times above reference. Japanese-made black metallic capacitors offer 20% better temperature endurance for a lifespan that’s up to five times longer. The new card is also built with extremely heard-wearing polymerized organic-semiconductor capacitors (POSCAPs) and has an aluminum backplate, further lowering power noise, increasing durability, enhancing overclocking possibilities and improving stability. Mars 760 even beams a glorious red and pulsates when it's active.
The ROG edition of GPU Tweak included with Mars 760 also enables detailed GPU load-line calibration and VRM-frequency tuning, allowing for the most extensive control and tweaking parameters for maximum overclocking potential — all adjusted via an attractive and easy-to-use GUI. As well, the GPU Tweak Streaming tool lets users share on-screen action over the internet in real time — so others can watch live as games is played. It’s even possible to add a title to the streaming window along with scrolling text, pictures and webcam images.
The ASUS Mars 760 will hit shelves in Singapore starting 15 December for S$949.
