Asus officially presents the ROG Poseidon GTX 780

This graphics card features a hybrid cooling system capable of offering both air and liquid-based cooling solutions.

A couple of weeks ago, some pictures from the people at ASUS said they were working on a new Poseidon card based on the GTX 780, a series that originated during the last Computex with a model based on the GTX 770 –which, by the way, was never released-.

The Poseidon GTX 780, unsurprisingly, will feature a GTX 780 chip and not the most recent GTX 780Ti one with more CUDA Cores, so we even though possible that this may be a prototype just like the GTX 770 version. We were wrong, however, since the company has officially announced

This card will be based on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 and it will have a custom PCB with DIGI+ technology to offer a better and stabler performance. Su disipador es el DirectCU 2 H2O, una versión híbrida del famoso DirectCU de la compañía con heat pipes de cobre en contacto directo con la GPU.

It can use a liquid cooling system, but also includes two fans so you can use both cooling system at the same time. Just with the air cooling system alone you already get 7 degrees less than the reference model, and if you use the hybrid system this figure reaches 24 degrees less.

The ASUS ROG Poseidon GTX 780 offers 2304 CUDA Cores at 1006 MHZ and 3 GB of GDDR5 RAM at 6008 MHz with a 384-bit memory interface.

It will be available by the end of the year, although its official price hasn’t been confirmed yet.
