I just mentioned some new video cards from MSI that have debuted at CeBIT in Germany today. Asus is also pulling the wraps off new video cards at CeBIT and the Ares HD 5970 has already been benchmarked.

The card has dual HD 5870 GPUs on one board each with their own 2GB of VRAM. Other really good news is that the dual GPU card will not be a limited edition. You can start saving your loot and as long as there is demand, Asus will build the card.

The card reportedly scores over 14,000 points with Extreme settings in 3DMark Vantage. The card has a giant cooling solution and needs two 8-pin and a single 6-pin connector for enough power. Me wants!
