We reported here that ASUS has just launched two new Matrix video cards that are now based on AMD’s Tahiti GPUs instead of Nvidia’s chips. Now we got word that the performance is something to dream at.

The starting price of the new 3D adapters is $490 (380 EUR) and this is somewhat more expensive than Gigabyte’s own Windforce 3x HD 7970 GHz Edition, but ASUS is making up for this with an impressive 6.6 GHz memory overclock that Gigabyte is lacking and many other exclusive features.
