"Canadian e-tailer NCIX has put up an Asus Ares card on eBay for Pakistan flood relief."

Search News

Ever wanted to feel like a kind soul while purchasing one of the fastest cards available?  Well now you can!  Canadian "Premier Computer Store" NCIX have put up an auction for Asus' rather exclusive Ares graphics card, with all proceeds going to the Canadian Red Cross towards relief for the recent Pakistan floods.

This top-of-the-line card features two HD5870 GPUs, 4GB of GDDR5 memory, and clock speeds of 850MHz/1600x2=3200MHz/4.8GHz for core/stream/memory respectively.  The card comes packaged in a large, aluminum locking case with a ROG gaming mouse nestled beside it.

Taking a look at our review of the card, we can see the Ares quite handily beats out the HD5970 as well as a typical Crossfire HD5870 setup.  It is quite simply one of the fastest cards out on the market at this time.

The auction ends on September 1st and has already garnered a bidding price of $1,300 over 22 bids in its first day of being up.  Be sure to keep an eye on it here.

Hi Guys

Left my 2 x GPU & CPU client folding while I was at work, just got home and 1 GPU has stopped (Paused) says on the client "EUE LIMIT EXCEEDED PAUSING 24 HOURS"

Whats all that about, I restarted the client and is all running again.

Anyone else get this??

Means they are unstable hayles... ie the overclock.

Change the clocks, more volts or w/e and restart the client.

I did restart the client, and now its running ok...

Just wondered what it meant

see which card it was and lower the shader overclock by 54, iirc you don't get that message unless 5 consecutive units fail

I never changed anything, I restarted the client and it has run thru the night no probs, shall I still reduce the shader????

If it running OK just leave alone. If it happens again on the same card I'd reduce the shaders.

Occasionally you can get a defective WU and that will happen....
