Asus MARS II Limited Edition review

Extreme graphical power at an extreme price

TODO alt text

To test the limits of a card as powerful as the Asus RoG MARS II Limited Edition, we ran all our benchmarks at a resolution of 2560 x 1600. It seems a waste to use this card for a standard issue 24-inch 1080p screen, after all.

The games and synthetic benchmarks feature varying levels of tessellation – Heaven 2.5 being the king of that castle – and also vary in terms of CPU intensity. Shogun II and Just Cause 2 results vary considerably with different processors, whereas Heaven 2.5 works the graphics card almost exclusively.

Metro 2033 is the most demanding benchmark of the bunch. We've yet to find a system that can run it at consistently playable frames at max settings and 2560 x 1600.
