Looks suspicious, but I don't work at a video card factory.Adding up the power provided by the three 8-pin power connectors and the power also provided by the PCI-Express slot, we obtain a total of 525 watts of available power to feed the Devil 13 card.
This leads many of us to believe we can only be looking at a dual GPU card based on AMD’s Tahiti Radeon HD 7970 GPU.
The extra amount of power leads us to a possible overclocked configuration, when the two GPU might actually be running above the 1 GHz frequency that AMD sets in many of its chips.

During a quick check of our favorite search engine we noticed that Asus' CES 2013 pride and joy, also known as the Asus Ares II dual HD 7970 limited edition graphics card, is actually available all over Europe.
Although we are looking at a very impressive dual-GPU graphics card paired up with hefty water-cooling system, the fact that the lowest price is set at €1272,29 in the UK and €1349 in both Germany and Austria, simply makes it a most meaningles graphics card that we have ever seen. Even the Powercolor's limited edition dual HD 7970 Devil13 graphics card is cheaper with a lowest price tag set at €939,84.
Of course, we must mention that you can actually buy two MSI R7970 Lightning Boost Edition 3GB graphics cards at €444,36 a piece (€888,72 for a pair) or even go for Sapphire's Vapor-X HD 7970 GHz Edition 6GB selling for €491,29 a piece (€982,58 for a pair).
Of course, we understand that this is a limited edition card, a collector's dream, but those things do not give it any more meaning.
In any case, if Ares II is just what you were looking for, you certainly will not have any trouble finding it in anywhere in Europe as it appears to be widely available.
