Asus has revealed another ROG product, this one the GTX 770 Poseidon. The GTX 770 Poseidon, though, is no ordinary GTX 770 with, say, an overclock. No, this one has a hybrid cooler, which cools the card using both air cooling and liquid cooling. The liquid cooling isn't attached by default; using water cooling fittings, users can add the card to their existing loops.

The cooler on the ROG GTX 770 Poseidon can be used in a number of different ways. Users can either employ only air cooling and just ignore the option for water cooling, run the unit solely on water cooling (with the fan switched off), or in a hybrid mode, where both the fan and liquid cooling are used. The cooling block also covers all the required parts, including the memory, VRMs and, of course, the GPU core.

Asus hasn't given us any official clock speed numbers, but we can imagine that such a card will pack some pretty respectable clock speeds. Of course, such a graphics card isn't complete without some lights. Thus the ROG logo on the side can light up in a number of ways, including pulsing or staying at a set brightness.

There was no word on when the card would hit retail, or its price.

    Pretty nice, but they haven't even released the normal asus gtx 7xx's yet!

    I think it would be pretty cool if more cards started to be made this way; with optional water cooling ability. I have a custom loop cooling my cpu, but i dont want to void my graphics card's warranty by taking off the stock cooler to add a water block.
    The more choices the better!

    fucking epic, i can totally c a build for this in my future projects. you smack 2 cards in one small chassi, drill 4 holes out from the chassi with self sealing coupling. so you can get a big hulking water cooling/pump out side the computer. and when you need to move to a friend. you simply detach the couplings they seal them self and down clock all gpu/cpu for normal and light air cooling.

    The feature that would make this the most appealing is if it allows for voltage control. Then you could take advantage of all the extra cooling.

    it's very interesting. I hope it doesn't at all compromise the performance benefit of a full liquid loop, and in fact, complement it. in a way, the air-cooling component's like an extra rad to your loop without the extra space. I'd be every interested in getting these poseidon cards if they're priced correctly

    Now THAT is what the ARES II should have been.
    I can only wonder why they're putting it on the 770 instead of the 780, though.

    Asus hasn't released the normal GTX770 because its the same damn card as the GTX680. They have to 1 up the GTX680, if not then the people with the GTX680 can match the overclocks of the GTX770s. I know i sure as hell have. 1301Mhz core, 7500Memory of both of my Asus GTX680s on air. Bios
    anyone not able to hit atleast 1275Mhz on a factory GTX680 has a HUGE cooling issue. buy a better case with a GPU door fan or something. spend some money before you decide to overclock your $80 space heater case

    Well a good move from Asus. If they would also make for AMD Radeon 9000 Series would be nice! Im like gonna use a stock cooler for the cpu first then get enough money for watercooling loop. Well EVGA has the hydrocopper series for watercooling but i dont know if they have also an air cooling. But ASUS Poseidon is a WORTH to buy. :)
