To take down a Titan of the GeForce variety, you don't necessarily need a bigger, burlier GPU. Multiple mid-range GPUs can do the trick, according to Asus, which just launched the Mars 760 under its Republic of Gamers (ROG) division. The Mars 760 consists of two GeForce GTX 760 graphics chips bolted onto a single slab of silicon, and though they're mid-range GPUs, Asus says the Mars 760 is faster than the GeForce Titan.
Each GTX 760 GPU has 1,152 CUDA cores, so there's a total of 2,304 underneath the hood. By comparison, a GeForce GTX Titan has 2,688 CUDA cores. To make up for the discrepancy, the Mars 760 is clocked at 1GHz and 1,072MHz boost, making it "even faster than Titan, and the Ti 780 in some games!," according to Asus.
Other features include soft-touch rubber paint against anodized aluminum, a red pulsating Mars light you can see through your case windows, a dual-slot design, DirectCU II technology, and a completely custom PCB with a 12-phase DIGI+ VRM design using high-end components.
