Asus has unveiled yet another custom GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. This time round, it’s the GTX 1080 Ti ROG Poseidon. Interestingly, the “AIO” graphics card sports a particularly unique the cooling solution.
Unlike traditional graphics cards with an AIO cooler, Asus’ ROG Poseidon can be cooled either by air or by liquid. On the front of the graphics card, one will find a normal looking two cooling fan setup. However, the back of the graphics card is also fitted with a “standard G1/4-inch Terminal Block” which can be used to plug the graphics card directly to one’s existing liquid cooling loop.
Asus dubs this new technology as “DirectCU H20 hybrid cooling.” The company also mentioned that when cooled on air, the GTX 1080 Ti ROG Poseidon will operate under load at temperatures around 75°C. Meanwhile, opting for the liquid cooling solution will bring the temperature down to around 50°C.
Bear in mind that Asus’ GTX 1080 Ti ROG Poseidon will draw power from two 8-pin power connectors. In addition, the graphics card is also fitted with one DVI port; and two HDMI 2.0 abd DisplayPort 1.4 ports each. Unfortunately, clock speeds were not mentioned by Asus.
Likewise, pricing and date of availability of this graphics card remains unknown, for now.
