Asus Displays GTX 780 Poseidon at CES 2014

While it's not the first time that we've seen the ROG Poseidon graphics card, new information has become available since we last reported.

All the information that we already knew is still valid. In addition, the card is a custom GTX 780 with a DirectCU H2O cooler strapped to it. The H2O cooler is a custom cooler that can adequately cool the graphics card on air, but also has built-in G1/4" threads for water cooling fittings. It can be cooled both on air and water, but also on just one of the two.

What we know now are the clock frequencies, which are set at 1006 MHz GPU, with no clear word on Boost frequencies yet. This is a rather high stock frequency, though nothing to write home about yet. That said, it's meant to be a safe clock speed on air, and when you add water to the loop, surely you'll be able to pump out a lot more MHz. The card still features 3 GB of GDDR5 memory, which runs over a 384-bit wide memory interface and runs at an effective speed of 6.0 GHz.

"ASUS is delighted to unveil innovations that will surprise the industry and excite end users — our treasured customers," remarked Jackie Hsu, ASUS Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Worldwide Sales. "Our goal always is to design and build products that make lives better, and we're pleased to be able once more to showcase our work on the world stage."

Asus is displaying the graphics card at CES 2014 in Las Vegas.

There is still no clear indication of when the card will hit shelves, though we imagine it won't be too long from now.

    While this card looks to be badass, I would have been more excited if it were a 780ti.

    Reading Poseidon I thought about something liquid cooled.
