ASUS MARS 295 LE

ASUS is developing a new high-end video card, the MARS 295 Limited Edition. Although officially branded as a variant of the GeForce GTX 295, the MARS in fact combines two GTX 285s -- creating a more powerful card, and a combined memory pool of 4GB, though each GPU only has access to 2GB. The cards are enclosed in a single casing, and said to be bridged together with a third-party chip, not an nForce 200.

The MARS occupies two expansion slots, and is believed to be taller than the reference GTX 295. The hardware is moreover SLI-capable, allowing it to form the basis of a quad-285 setup when placed in a matching pair. Pricing is unknown, but an official debut may come as soon as next week's Computex expo, which begins June 2nd in Taipei.
