ASUS ROG Poseidon GTX 980Ti delivers 9.6% faster game performance than reference design
Air or Liquid – Your Choice to Chill
Designed to provide superb performance on air or liquid, the ROG Poseidon graphics card incorporates DirectCU H2O to give you the flexibility and freedom of choice.
Liquid cooling has been a choice for many PC enthusiast as a efficient means of heat removal and increased overclocking potential of carefully selected hardware. However, custom water cooling solutions can be difficult and costly, as original cooling solutions have to be removed and fitted with waterblocks. The ROG team engineered the Poseidon with revolutionary DirectCU H2O to give you the best of air and liquid cooling- providing total flexibility whether you are looking to liquid cool now or later. Venturing into liquid cooling with the Poseidon reduces GPU temperatures by up to 27°C and enjoy ultra-stable overclocking!
• Poseidon GTX 980Ti is 6.1% Faster in GTA V at 1920*1080 resolution, than Reference GTX 980 Ti.
• Poseidon GTX 980Ti is 9.6% Faster in Witcher 3 at 1920*1080 resolution, than Reference GTX 980 Ti.
DirectCU H2O Hybrid Cooling: Complete flexibility for either air or liquid cooling
DirectCU H2O is a hybrid thermal solution that combines the vapor chamber and water channel with standard G1/4- inch threaded fittings to easily accommodate existing liquid cooling equipment. With liquid, DirectCU H2O achieves up to 2 times(30°C) lower temperatures while reducing noise- up to 3X quieter.
