ASUS ROG has been showcasing the new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Poseidon. The card can both be hybrid cooled with the fans used as well as using a liquid cooling loop.
ASUS completely overhauled the looks and design for the Poseidon, including AURA RGB LED enablement. Armed with a massive liquid cooling block (H2O), a custom PCB, quality components and a factory overclock this product is bound to perform, whilst staying totally silent.
The ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Poseidon edition comes factory overclock (clocks have not been disclosed just yet) and that hybrid cooler which packs two dust-proof fans, multiple heatpipes, a large heatsink and a water block.
The PCB is cooled by the next-generation DirectCU H2O cooling technology which comes with a massive baseplate designed to offer 40% more heat dissipation area and 20% increase of water flow rate from the water channels integrated within it. The heatpipes extend from the GPU to the VRMs, VRAM and PLL area. The waterblock uses standard G 1/4-inch terminal block and would be compatible with most liquid cooled systems. The hybrid cooler is said to offer under 50C load temps with liquid cooling and under 70C temps with air cooling.
This means you can just use the air-cooling, but alternatively you can fire up liquid cooling as well, which we’d recommend. The card will become available in April 2017.
