Because we love what we do, work very hard, and reap the rewards that hard work and honest reviewing brings.

The cards look excellent, can't wait to see some numbers on them. You have to love ASUS for doing these cards, even if for the majority of people they are like limited edition 1000hp Lambos... pretty to look at, impossible to ever have.

Well NEW YEAR is "only" six months away, here's hoping these beasts will be included in you know what normally happens then...

Of course it is theoretically possible that ASUS might do a MARS2. That would be hot, figuratively and literally. They should call that one SATURN

Tom, once again great video. You seem to be growing in confidence on the lens too as last time you were blinking a lot and looking away. So it's great the confidence levels are up.

I just watched the entire video and wrote down some notes so I can ask a couple of questions. Don't worry I am not going to ask anything techy or that would breach the NDA because I've been under a couple of them myself so I know how they are.

So, I shall begin with... Is it heavy? Also when the review does come can you include the weight? I admit that things like that do turn me on Sadly this card is totally out of my league on account of it costing more than my entire rig. Infact, I would hazard a guess and say I have spent less than a grand on both of my rigs

My second question is over the pronounciation of the company name. In the states it was deemed to be Azoos yet you seem to pronounce it Aceuss. What do the company address themselves as when you speak to them and they pick up the phone?

That might seem like a really stupid question but things like that bother me I remember calling the Celeron a Celeeron (in pronouncing it) but others called it the Selleron (as in Celery).

Totally agree about the power cables. That is quite silly really. Although having said that most PSU manus have done away with the eight pin plugs now. Neither of my PSUs have them (750w Hipro and a 750w Delta) so that might be why? either way I agree you would be crazy to feed the power that they need down into those adapters.

Now for some funnier questions..

Do you get to keep them?

And when you got them was it in the park on a bench? were you wearing a grey trench coat and addressed the Asus rep as 'Grey Squirrel'?



Haha, for some reason when I look at the way they are packed it reminds me of Trigger Happy

Oh and also. +50XP to Asus for giving us blightys dibs. Makes a bloody nice change that. Usually we get crapped on with stuff like that.

This type of kit never gets to stay fella, these are the only 2 for the UK press so they will be going on rotation when they leave here.

I call it Ace-US just like the guy I deal with does, but HQ and the US I do belive say AS-OOSE

Isn't Asus a god or something?

Make sure you give those cards a ruddy good pasting before you pass them on. And leave your fingerprints and DNA all over them
