    It's Not A Radeon HD 5970. It's A Radeon HD 5870 X2 with 4 GB of GDDR5 Memory

    Asus' new ARES immediately earns bragging rights as one of the fastest single graphics cards ever created. We put the beast through a gauntlet of tests to measure this product's true power. At the end of the day, we answer whether it's worth four digits.

    Look at that monster.. that card is Super-Gorgeous.. too bad that ATI doesn't have proper computing apps to draw the full potential of this card..

    even I've not :p

    BTW, would like to see a review of thses cards in 2x CF mode or 3x and if possible 4x - what would be the power of those 8 GPUs combined with 16 GB of GDDR5 memory - I think a suitable application ATi guys should create to harness the maximum power out of these kind of setup :p
