Asus' Mars II and Matrix GTX 580 detailed

Dual GTX 580 Mars II
In addition to a bunch of new devices that Asus is going to show next week at Computex 2011, it appears that there will be some novelties in the graphics card department as well - the new dual-GPU Mars II limited edition card and the Matrix GTX 580.

Although it wasn't pixellized, the leaked specs suggest the new Mars II card will feature a 19-phase VRM with Super Alloy Power technology, new GPU Tweak overclocking UI and "an exclusive DirectCU cooling" with dual fan design that should keep the two GF110 GPUs running cool. The precise clocks for this one haven't been revealed but we are quite sure that Asus is holding back in order to keep some exclusivity for the Computex show.

A bit less exclusive, but equally as interesting is the upcoming Matrix GTX 580, creme of the crop when it comes to GTX 580 GPU from Asus. This one will be available in two versions, one at reference clocks and one with factory overclocking and will also feature a 19-phase VRM and a triple-slot, dual-fan DirectCU II cooler. As you would expect from a card designed for overclocking, it comes with voltage read points, Super Alloy components athe same new GPU Tweak overclocking UI.

The specs for the Matrix GTX 580 include 512 CUDA cores, a GF110 GPU clocked at either 782MHz for the standard version or 816MHz for the Platinum, 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4008MHz and paired up with a 384-bit memory interface.

its useless with only 1,5gb ram , the rest is just a selling argument but nothing special...

Disappointing only 3GB of ram?! They will charge towards £1000 for this card. You could buy 2 x HD 6990 for the same money and totally wipe the floor with this card?

Yes...the memory is limiting considering the graphical grunt that is available on the card.....I'm running two Palit gtx460's 2GB models in sli.....my vram usage was registering at 1400MB at 1920X1200 on crysis warhead last night.
Two 580's could potentially need much more.

Would you say the same for the 5970Mars from Asus?overpriced,etc etc?Since its not NV i suggest no.
Its not about performance,ram and other things,its about what Asus engineers can do and exclusivity.And 1.5Gb atm more than enough,until cards with 1-1.5gb start REALLY strugling,there will be new gen cards
And why somebody cant put 2x580MARS and wipe your beloved hoover 2x6990?It will be way to easy

How would buying two 6990 (750.00 a piece) amount to 1000.00? AMD fanboys need to go back to school.

Oops my bad, I meant £1000, in the UK a HD 6990 costs £500..
