That's a pretty misleading name for a GPU.. I thought it was gonna be a dual GPU on a single PCB.

As long as the PCB isn't white, it should look pretty good

Reading the headline made me think is is a dual GPU card.

ASUS needs to release a MARS III this year.

The name is for the dual fan cooler.


I would love to see a new Mars Card! Loved those things!

We know that now but when they name it a 1070 Dual GPU, it sounds like a dual GPU card, not a fan cooler. Think they did it on purpose...

Sure they did, nothing is better for marketing than disappointment.
To be fair i thought it was a dual GPU card at first as well, but that is probably more due to the headline being 1070 DUAL GPU instead of 1070 DUAL, the actual name of the card.

I don't really fancy the card, looks a bit cheap.

Dual seems to be the new range below Strix and to set it aside from the triple fan coolers of that range. If you remember the DC range I would hazard a guess that the DC was short for Dual Cooler (or cooling or whatever).

The actual name of the product is "ASUS GTX 1070 Dual", the GPU part is what OC3D added in the actual news story. So no asus is not confusing anyone, OC3D is

Edit: What SeekaX said.
