Many moons have passed and ATI gave their partners the thumbs up to create little werewolves. See, when it's a full moon the R5870 turns into something geeky, extraordinary, even a bit hairy. Yes the OC editions of the Radeon HD 5870 series were unleashed. As the ASUS ROG team started to design the ASUS Radeon 5870 Matrix Platinum.
In all its ways the 5870 Matrix Platinum card needs to be extreme, so we spot a custom PCB, some extraordinary cooling, we see a 2 GB memory size, we spot a standard overclock, but most of all... the card comes with overclocking software that allows voltage tweaking on three domains within the graphics card. What makes this product series so special is that it haves been designed with the ROG team (Republic of Gamers) a small group of enthusiasts within the ASUS campus. Little red colored minions that drink LN2 and taze each other just for fun. They live by one rule only, gain the maximum performance out of a product... and do things right.
