Rumor: Asus Water Coolable GTX 780 Ti ROG Poseidon

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 13 comments

Asus is working on a new Poseidon cooler that can cool graphics cards with both air and water.

A while ago, Asus came out with its GTX 770 ROG Poseidon. It seems that it was a success, because as a result, Asus is sketching a new Poseidon cooler. The Poseidon graphics cards from Asus can be cooled by air as well as by liquid. By themselves, they feature enough cooling power to be cooled solely by air, though they have threads for water cooling fittings that enable you to slap some extra cooling power on them for some over-the-top overclocking.

The new Poseidon cooler is advertised to feature two 'dust-proof' fans, as well as an LED ROG logo. They are expected to first be featured on the company's GTX 780 Ti card which would also feature an extra powerful VRM circuit.

There was no word on pricing or a release date.

    Depending on the price this should help newer water cooling users without having to buy an expensive water block.
    It also adds the option for those who arent sure. Good concept I would say.

    Make it have 6GB VRAM and I'll buy 2 for 1,000 bucks each. Possibly more...

    Very nice, but I bet it will be priced waaay out of competitive reach for a standard card and a waterblock. And it will probably be as rare and hard to find as the predecessors.

    But in principle, its a very nice move.

    Mmm, okay, that's sexy. I wouldn't buy it to upgrade from my 670, but use this as a beta and launch another card like this when you have pricing and supply under control, and I will happily buy a maxwell Posidon card.

    I am just waiting for a non stock 290X. So far I have only seen a PCB for the MSI Lightning and I am not a fan of MSI GPUs after working in a retail store and having a good percentage of them have fans go bad. Give me Asus or Sapphire.

    Wow how late are you guys. this has been on other websites for a week now.

    plus its a 780. not a 780Ti. and locked voltage and so on. basically its useless as you can't overclock high enough to warrant a double cooling.

    I might of gotten it if it was a Ti but eh. I will see what EVGA will do.

    Darklyspectre, have you ever thought that maybe they want to upgrade to what is currently the fastest single card gpu instead of something slower than both the r9 290x and r9 290? ROG is known for enthusiast grade stuff, and unless this was a dual 780, then it would be kinda pointless.

    ...how is the 780 the fastest single card GPU?

    the 780Ti is the fastest single card GPU.

    How is picking the locked version of kepler(780) more enthusiast grade than the unlocked version of it(780Ti)?

    yep! i would love this hits the r9 290 or the 290x. because the temp on that card is fucking bad!
