Computex 2013. ASUS. GTX 770 ROG Poseidon, graphics with hybrid cooling with air and liquid


The concept is simple, a graph with a dissipation block capable of cool the chip and internal components using a fan with conventional heat sink or liquid cooling. We have seen some cases of hybrid systems on the company’s motherboards, usually in the ROG range, where the chipset or VRMs could be cooled with a fan or by connecting them to a pre-mounted RL circuit, but never on a graphics card.

The ASUS ROG Poseidon that we could see at the Computex 2013 fair in Taipei is based on an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 chip, one of Nvidia’s new generation high-end GPUs, although this does not have to be the GPU that will finally come out with this new system.

The system has a complete block that covers the entire graphics card from the front and a heatsink connected to a central fan that cools the entire block. This block has water restriction elements to transfer temperature through liquid if it is connected to liquid cooling, as if it were a water block. Contact with the chips is made using DirectCU technology with direct contact. Naturally, by using liquid cooling, the temperature can be kept lower, there will be no fan noise, and the chances of overclocking will be increased.

According to ASUS the hybrid dissipation system has been used in this GTX 770, but It is not yet clear which model will be the one that will definitely hit the market.nor if it will be a chip AMD Radeon or NVIDIA GeForce perhaps we will see in the future a specific range with this alternative cooling system with several high-end GPU models.
