We talked about ASUS’ intention of making a new dual-GPU video card some time ago, but the company has bluntly denied any such plans, so we gave up on the idea also.
Now there is some new info available that suggests the Taiwanese giant is actually working on an Ares successor, but that’s not going to be a dual Pitcairn card like it was initially rumored.
The hardware enthusiasts at EXPreview have reportedly
managed to snatch a picture of what’s supposed to be a dual-GPU video card that’s using AMD
Surprisingly, the card in question is based on two Tahiti XT GPUs, and thus, it is actually ASUS’ own AMD Radeon 7990 version.
This could also be a dual AMD Radeon HD 7970 video card, as there are many clues that point towards the fact that AMD’s dual Tahiti implementation will likely have a different setup, frequencies and TDP than a Radeon HD 7970 X2.
