Speaking to The DQ Week, Vinay

Shetty, Country Head — Components Business, Asus India said, “The

company would be announcing the launch of Asus Ares Graphics card in

a week and this is the first time, that such a high-end offering in

VGA will be offered in India.”

According to Shetty, the new product

deploys the powerful Radeon HD 5870 running at 850MHz, which

optimizes their joint performance. "Since it is a premium

product with only 1,000 units available worldwide, we will be taking

back-to-back orders from the end of July. It is a special limited

edition VGA and is priced at Rs One lakh. It is truly a premium price

but every product has its own buyers and we have kept that segment in

our mind,” added Shetty. The Asus Ares will be available through

its distributors in India.
