ASUS ROG Poseidon Graphics Card Overview

ASUS ROG ROG Poseidon Graphics Card Overview

Shown off first at Computex in 2013, the ASUS Poseidon is one of those graphics card that makes you go, "WOW". It all started off as a concept design and eventually ended up coming out as a retail product. The ROG Poseidon is currently available as a GTX 780 (ROG POSEIDON-GTX780-P-3GD5) and features a copper vapor chamber that cools the GPU and spreads the heat over the DirectCU II cooler.

When you add water, the temperature of the card drops another 24C depending on how thick and large the radiator is that you are using. The connectors on the side of the card are standard G 1/4 plugs which means they will fit the variety of barbs currently out there on the market.

What makes this card special is that you can either use it air-cooled or air and water-cooled at the same time. This hybrid design makes it so you can change up your cooling system in your computer and not worry about replacing parts up voiding any warranties by opening up the card to install an after-market kit.

The GTX 780 Poseidon Platinum card should be available soon at your favorite retailers.
