ASUS GTX780 Poseidon Platinum First Look



Fancy a graphics card that is as happy whether it's air cooled or in a water loop? ASUS have just the ticket.

VGA Hotwire

I can see that the backplate has a different cut out than the DCII card in the VGA Hotwire soldering points does it mean that you don't have to short PGR152 solder pads and remove the PGR 100 resistor to use VGA Hotwire? Or does it have an unclocked power target?

I believe someone else said "jack of all trades, master of none" it will be OK on air, but not as good as it could be, it will be OK on water, but not as good as it could be... Do people really umm and ahh over going to water or not that much? I'm not so sure... I am happy to be proven wrong but I would say the people going the watercooling route would be happier with a dedicated watercooling block and would be happy to do the swap, I don't think anyone would be daunted by the swap either. This seems to me marketed towards people that are confused if they want to go to watercooling or not? Once the decision has been made, its best to be balls deep

Looking at the path of the water in the block I think it'll fare a little worse that dedicated block, but with the fans and heatsink, it'll more than make up for it. However, one of the points of a water block is to do away with the fans, for a silent gpu. I wouldn't dare run that card without fans, that block won't cope, imo.

Having said that, with a bit of modding you can achieve the same yourself .





I wonder if Tom will tear this card down? Be interesting to see the construction, and also the performance of course.

Are dual method cooling graphic cards a thing of the future? The Poseidon is a good start, but welcome other manufacturers to try harder!

I really do love the idea of this card!

ASUS do seem to love trying to push boundaries, with their MARS and ARES cards and now their combination Air/Water cooler. They must spend an insane amount of money making these.

I have to agree with this sentiment. Water cooling should be just that - a hybrid h2O/air approach won't provide maximum cooling or push cards to their performance limit.

In addition, my biggest beef with GPU's has always been replacing factory blowers/fans that have crapped out. It's SOOO much simpler to just swap out that 120mm fan on a radiator, without even touching the GPU.
