ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces Poseidon GTX 980, priced at RM2,599 1
Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the immediate availability of Poseidon
GTX 980 here in Malaysia. The
Poseidon GTX 980 with DirectCU H2O, a new graphics card with an exclusive
hybrid thermal solution that enables extremely efficient cooling by either air
or water.
new card is powered by the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™
980 graphics-processing unit (GPU). With DirectCU H2O on board offering users
the unique ability to cool either by air or water, ROG Poseidon GTX 980
achieves running temperatures that are up to 27°C lower than reference designs
— that’s up to 2X cooler for gaming performance that’s up to 10% faster in
Watch Dogs™ and 7% faster in Battlefield 4™.
Poseidon GTX 980 is also loaded with ROG technologies and innovations,
including dual 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 for incredible stability and up
to a 5X-longer lifespan than reference. ROG Poseidon GTX 980 comes equipped
with three native DisplayPort connections that support NVIDIA G-SYNC™
surround to let gamers combine up to 3 G-SYNC monitors and create an incredibly
immersive gaming environment. The new card also comes with GPU Tweak, an
easy-to-use software utility that squeezes maximum performance from the GPUs —
real-time graphics tuning and live streaming has never been this easy.
Exclusive DirectCU H2O technology for up to 2X cooler and
3X quieter performance
Poseidon GTX 980 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, ROG Poseidon GTX 980 achieves up to
27°C-lower running temperatures than reference designs. With air cooling, ROG Poseidon
GTX 980 achieves running temperatures that are up to 15X cooler than reference.
What’s more, with standard G¼-inch threaded fittings, ROG
Poseidon GTX 980 easily accommodates 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 — ROG Poseidon GTX 980’s
increased resistance to dust and other particulates mean that the card will
remain working for up to 25% longer than reference designs.
Thoughtful power design that’s built to last
ASUS engineers have
designed ROG Poseidon GTX 980 to just keep on going. The card includes
exclusive Digi+ VRM with Super Alloy Power technology. Black metallic
solid-state capacitors,10-phase Super Alloy Power concrete-core chokes and
hardened MOSFETs all withstand much greater stress and heat due to the
application of specially-formulated materials — increasing reliability and
overall card lifespan up to five times (5X). Digi+ VRM regulates voltage
digitally, ensuring ample room for experimental performance tuning — to levels
unmatched by other graphics cards.
ROG Poseidon GTX 980
also benefits from a tough back-plate that’s made from an aluminum alloy and a
unique die-cast thermal armor with thermal pads — preventing bending and
further improving cooling in the crucial MOSFET and memory areas.
Immense gaming power that bathes in an awesome glow
ROG Poseidon GTX 980
includes GPU Tweak, an exclusive tuning tool that allows quick, simple and safe
control over video-memory clock speeds, cooling-fan speeds and
power-consumption thresholds — allowing the card’s GPU to be pushed to its
As well, the GPU
Tweak Streaming tool lets users share on-screen action over the internet in
real time, so others can watch live as games are played. It’s even possible to
add a title to the streaming window along with scrolling text, pictures and
webcam images.

On top of this
ability to unleash incredible power, ROG Poseidon GTX 980 also looks amazing,
with a gorgeous LED light that glows a glorious red and pulsates majestically
when the cards are active — a stunning reminder of awesome power at work.
