The world’s fastest water-cooled dual R9 290X gaming graphics card performing 15% faster than GTX Titan Z in 4K/UHD ultra-high resolution

 

Taipei, Taiwan (5th September, 2014) — 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 1030MHz, and boasting 8GB of GDDR5 memory with a clock speed of 5000MHz, ROG Ares III delivers blazingly-fast performance. In 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme testing, this monster card performs 15% faster and runs Battlefield 4 at frame rates 33% greater than GTX Titan Z in 4K Ultra High Definition (3840×2160) resolution.

Featuring a hand-carved EK water block, ROG Ares III has a premium, water-cooled design that provides 25% cooler temperatures than the reference Radeon R9 295X2. ROG Ares III is made with exclusive ASUS Super Alloy Power components for enhanced durability and cooling, and comes with GPU Tweak for overclocking and online streaming that is as simple as it is flexible.

Engineering craftsmanship in a limited-edition card

Meticulously-engineered and carefully-crafted with close attention to detail, ROG Ares III includes premium design elements such as its sleek form factor and EK water block that is hand-carved for a precision fit with the card. This ultimate water-cooled graphics card runs 25% cooler than the reference R9 295X2. Under the Fire Strike Extreme benchmark, ROG Ares III runs 15% faster than GTX Titan Z. In 4K Ultra High Definition (3840×2160) resolution, it runs Battlefield 4 at an incredible 33% greater frame rate.

ROG Ares III will be manufactured in a limited run of just 500 individually-numbered units, making it highly-collectible.

Digi+ VRM with black metallic capacitors and 16-phase Super Alloy Power

ROG Ares III features Digi+ voltage-regulator module (VRM) technology with a 16-phase concrete-core power design and Japanese-made 10K black metallic capacitors, reducing power noise by 30% and enhancing energy efficiency by 15% without generating distracting whines and buzzes, compared to the reference 12-phase Radeon R9 295X. Digi+ VRM also widens voltage-modulation tolerance and improves overall stability and increases overclocking potential.

ROG-themed GPU Tweak and live streaming utility

ROG Ares III comes with GPU Tweak, an exclusive ASUS tool that enables users to squeeze the very best performance from their graphics card. GPU Tweak provides the ability to finely control clock speeds, voltages, fan performance and more in real time from an intuitive user interface, so overclocking is easy and can be carried out with high confidence.

GPU Tweak also includes a streaming tool that lets users share on-screen action over the internet in real time, meaning others can watch live as games are played. It is even possible to add a title to the streaming window along with scrolling text, pictures and webcam images.
