ASUS have announced their new ROG GTX 1080 Ti Poseidon, offering a hybrid air/water cooler with next generation DirectCU H20 cooling. 
 
This new GPU is designed to offer cooler operating temperatures be allowing users to integrate this GPU into their existing water cooling loop, without the need to install an aftermarket water block or voiding their warranty. 
 
When compared to their previous DirectCU H2O design, the GTX 1080 Ti Poseidon will offer 40% more heatsink dissipation areas and a 20% increase in water channel flow. This new GPU design will have higher operating temperatures when relying solely on air cooling.

At this time ASUS has not announced the final clock speeds of this new GTX 1080 Ti GPU, though it is likely to offer speeds that ae similar to ASUS' existing GTX 1080 Ti Strix.

I like that little illuminated plexi block on the right side of the card, Very snazzy.Quote

I often wonder who buys these cards with the water/air mix. You'd need a custom loop to utilise its full potential and at that point a proper waterblock would outperform this so I just don't quite get who it's for.Quote

Oh I don't know about the custom water block part man. The 780 Poseidon was fantastic on both air and water.Quote

Trust me a custom water block will be cooler as they have a proper jet plate. The inside of these poseidons are very basic because they need the transfer of heat to the heatpipes for the air portion to work well enough that the card doesn't overheat and that really restricts what they can do with the channels for water flow. If you look at the design the water just flows around the block with no resistance in a U shape. The water doesn't get disturbed, almost no restriction.

With a proper waterblock you'll have a jetplate that funnels the water into a large surface area directly on the die to remove the most heat it can from the GPU surface, this Asus dual cooling setup is relying much more on ambient heat transfer than directional flow.

A proper waterblock from EK will be at-least 10c lower than this thing on water.

EDIT:// this post did say 20c lower, I have amended it to be more in tune with reality at 10c.Quote
