ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced Poseidon GTX780 with DirectCU H2O, a new graphics card with an exclusive hybrid thermal solution that enables extremely efficient cooling by either air or water.The new card is powered by the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 GPU (graphics-processing unit).
With DirectCU H2O on board offering users the unique ability to cool either by air or water, ROG Poseidon GTX780 achieves running temperatures that are up to 24°C lower than reference designs — that’s up to 140% cooler for gaming performance that’s up to 12% faster in both Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and BattleField 4TM.ROG Poseidon GTX780 is also loaded with ROG technologies and innovations, including dust-proof fans for increased card longevity, die-cast thermal armor for improved cooling in the crucial MOSFET area, DIGI+ voltage-regulation modules (VRMs) with black metallic capacitors power design for incredible stability and reduced noise. The new card also comes with GPU Tweak, easy-to-use software that squeezes maximum performance from the GPUs — real-time graphics tuning and live streaming has never been this easy.
About the launch of ASUS Poseidon GTX 780 Graphics Card, Vinay Shetty – Country Head – Component Business, ASUS (India) said, “Keeping in sync with our commitment to constantly innovate, the latest Republic of Gamers (ROG) ASUS Poseidon GTX 780 Graphic Card is equipped with DirectCU H20 hybrid air and water cooling technology that’s up to 140% cooler for gaming performance while being 3X quieter and 12% faster than reference designs. Along with great performance, the card also offers unparalleled cooling performance and is the perfect choice for discerning gamers and high end users.”
ROG Poseidon GTX780 is fitted with exclusive DirectCU H2O technology, which employs a combined air and water channel to provide complete flexibility for the user — and ultra-efficient cooling for the graphics cards.A custom vapor chamber is in direct contact with the card’s GPU for faster heat dispersal, while copper heat-pipes and extended cooling fins further transfer heat out and away from the card to keep it running cool.
With water cooling, Poseidon GTX780 achieves up to 24°C-lower running temperatures than reference designs — keeping the GPU cooler when using GPU Boost 2.0. With air cooling, Poseidon GTX780 achieves up to 7°C-lower running temperatures than reference. What’s more, with standard G¼-inch threaded fittings, ROG Poseidon GTX780 easily accommodate existing cooling equipment – so users can get going with water cooling right away.The new card features dust-proof fans that deliver cooler, quieter operation and extend lifespan — Poseidon GTX780’s increased resistance to dust and other particulates mean that the card will remain working for up to 25% longer than reference designs.
