ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the limited-edition Ares III, the world’s fastest water-cooled gaming graphics card with a slim, single-slot form factor. Powered by dual AMD Radeon Hawaii XT R9 290X GPUs factory-overclocked at 1030 MHz, and boasting 8 GB of GDDR5 memory with a clock speed of 5000 MHz, ROG Ares III delivers blazingly-fast performance.
ASUS as expected has announced their Republic of Gamers ARES III graphics card at Computex 2014. The ROG ARES III is simply an AMD Radeon R9 295X2 in a new form. AMD is not allowing AiB partners to use the R9 295X2 naming unless they use the reference design of the card.
For those waiting for a dual Hawaii-based graphics card you might not have to wait that much longer. ASUS is planning to launch their custom built ARES III Hawaii-based card at Computex 2014. The ARES brand is ASUS’s custom built dual-chip graphics lineup based on AMD GPUs.
