Default Asus ROG MARS 760

Not sure if you guys have seen this yet as the articles quite aged and I wasnt sure where to put it, and I checked the news section and couldnt find it.

Looks like it could be a nice price/performance card

EDIT: Found a review of it:

I think it's dumb. SLI isn't perfect, double the heat output and power consumption compared to a 780ti and is priced compared to a 780ti. If it was me, I would just buy a 780ti and not deal with the SLI hassel.

Yea, after owning a crossfire setup, I would much prefer just one single big card than a multi gpu, I just thought it was always an interesting concept

Yea they've made quite a few cards like this before. The 580 SLI will be my last dual card setup.
