Various online sources Asus Poseidon Series GPU

I can not wait for this. When they showed off the Fusion Thermal for the MVF I was wondering if they would start doing waterblocks for their own cards, and looks like they will thumb.gif

The GTX 670 DirectCU Mini cooler earned ASUS engineers tons of respect (and hopefully sales) from enthusiasts. The same crew unveiled a new high-end graphics card in the company's Republic of Gamers (ROG) family, based on a performance-segment GeForce GTX 700 series GPU, the ROG Poseidon. The card features a unique new cooler that combines an air-based cooler, with a full-coverage liquid-based one. Users have the choice of running the completely on air, completely on water (with the fan shut off), or with both in concert (air+liquid). The solution works with a common full-coverage base that makes contact with the card's GPU, memory, and VRM, which is in contact with both a complex ain-array, and a coolant channel. An ROG logo on the cooler's top lights up red, and can either stay at a set brightness, or pulsate. The company didn't finalize clock speeds, or launch date.

Asus has revealed another ROG product, this one the GTX 770 Poseidon. The GTX 770 Poseidon, though, is no ordinary GTX 770 with, say, an overclock. No, this one has a hybrid cooler, which cools the card using both air cooling and liquid cooling. The liquid cooling isn't attached by default; using water cooling fittings, users can add the card to their existing loops.

The cooler on the ROG GTX 770 Poseidon can be used in a number of different ways. Users can either employ only air cooling and just ignore the option for water cooling, run the unit solely on water cooling (with the fan switched off), or in a hybrid mode, where both the fan and liquid cooling are used. The cooling block also covers all the required parts, including the memory, VRMs and, of course, the GPU core.

Asus hasn't given us any official clock speed numbers, but we can imagine that such a card will pack some pretty respectable clock speeds. Of course, such a graphics card isn't complete without some lights. Thus the ROG logo on the side can light up in a number of ways, including pulsing or staying at a set brightness.

There was no word on when the card would hit retail, or its price.

NVIDIA took the wraps off of its latest-generation Geforce GTX 770 GPU last week, and manufacturers have begun announcing not only reference designs but custom and factory overclocked versions of this GK-104 "Kepler" GPU refresh. One card in particular that caught my attention was the ASUS GTX 770 Poseidon graphics card, which combines NVIDIA's GK-104 GPU with a hybrid heatsink and fan combo that allows the simultaneous use of water and air cooling!

According to the branding, and a hands-on report by Tech Power Up at Computex in Taipei, Taiwan, the GTX 770 Poseidon graphics card is part of the company's Republic of Gamers (ROG) line and likely sports beefy VRM hardware and factory GPU overclocks. Of course, the GTX 770 GPU uses NVIDIA's Kepler architecture and is essentially the GTX 680 with some seriously overclocked memory and refined GPU Boost technology. That means 1,536 CUDA cores, 128 texture units, and 32 ROPs (raster operation units) within 4 GPCs (Graphics Processing Clusters). This is the full GK-104 chip, desite the x70 name. For more information on the GTX 770 GPU, check out our recent review of the NVIDIA GTX 770 card.

Update: ASUS has just launched the new ROG graphics cards at a Computex press conference. According to the ASUS press release:

"ROG Poseidon graphics card with hybrid DirectCU H2O cooling
The new ROG Poseidon graphics card features an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 700 Series GPU and a hybrid DirectCU H2O thermal design that supports both air and liquid cooling. Developed by ASUS, its CoolTech fan combines blower and axial fans in one design, forcing air in multiple directions over the heatsink to maximize heat dissipation. Liquid cooling reduces operating temperatures by up to 31 degrees Celsius for cooler running with even greater overclocking potential. ROG Poseidon also features a red pulsing ROG logo for a distinctive dash of style."

(end update)

Back on the Poseidon specifcally, the card is a short GTX 770 with a distinctive cooler that uses a full cover water block that covers the entire card and includes the GPU, memory, and VRM areas. ASUS further added a more-traditional air cooler to the area above the GPU itself to help dissapate heat. The air cooler is a circular aluminum fin array with a fan that sits in the middle. The air entire hybrid cooler is then covered by a ROG-themed shroud with a configurable LED-backlit Republic of Gamers logo on the side that can be controlled via software.

The water cooling portion acts as any other full cover water block, allowing cool water to move heat away from the metal contact (the bottom of the block) touching the various components. The inlet and outlets poke out from the side of the card, which is a bit odd but the shroud prevents them coming out at 90-degrees like typical blocks. If your case width is tight, you may need to get creative to fit a 90-degree barb extender (I apologize if that's not the technical term) on to the existing tubing connectors (heh). The cooler can be operated with the air cooler's fan running with or without being connected to a water loop. When water cooling is used, the fan can be turned off to reduce noise or left on to allow for higher overclocks and/or lower temperatures.

Unfortunately, that is all of the information that is currently available as ASUS has not yet officially launched on the custom GTX 770 graphics card. Pricing, availability, and clockspeed details are still unknown.

For more information, stay tuned to the press.asus.com/events livestream page as it might be announced at a Computex press conference this week since the company is showing off the hardware at the show!

I think the design needs a remake, it looks kind of tacking in all honesty.
