ASUS Unveils the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ROG Poseidon Graphics Card

ASUS at a media event, unveiled its latest GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ROG Poseidon graphics card. The company's pioneering Poseidon series graphics cards are characterized by air+liquid hybrid cooling solutions that both work as conventional air-cooled graphics cards, or can be plumbed to a liquid-cooling loop to vastly improve cooling performance. With the GTX 1080 Ti Poseidon, ASUS innovated a new DirectCU H2O technology that passes a copper coolant tube directly over the cooler's base, besides a copper base-plate, which conveys heat to an aluminium fin-stack. The air-cooling component of the ASUS GTX 1080 Ti Poseidon features a dense aluminium fin-stack heatsink ventilated by a pair of IP5X-Certified fans. The company did not reveal clock-speeds, pricing, or availability information.

Not trying to just pick on your comment, but... If you don't like rgb leds... Choose "disable leds" or match them to your color scheme. Nobody says you have to use the rgb function.

Problem solved :) there now we can move past it.

People still bashing RGB i see...

I really dont get it. If you dont like the RGB aspect of it. Dont use it. Dont buy it. Dont knock it for other people that like it. I love all the RGB shit. This way if I get tired of a color, I can change it to whatever I want it to be without having to buy new shit just to match a theme I have going.

I really dont get all the fucking hate for RGB. Fuckin get over it people.

Real men don't display rainbows? Serious hardware geeks only respect performance, not looks? Cool and quiet freaks don't want the extra heat/power draw, however small? Dead LEDs on a motherboard or video card will lower the resale value, even though it performs flawlessly? It makes people feel cool and edgy to bash something?
Those are some of the possible reasons I came up with. Personally, I can take 'em or leave 'em - like them if done tastefully, but would never choose hardware because it's got "moar LEDs".

In order you list them:

1) Really? :laugh:
2) Why cant it be both?
3) LEDs aren't going to make the temps go up a whole helluva lot if at all.
4) Chances are if you're selling your stuff its because you upgraded and you aren't really money conscious to keep up with the latest and greatest anyhow. And if someone else buys the board and they don't care about RBGs, why would it matter?
5) They think it does but it really doesn't. Just makes them look like an idiot.

1) Yes. I've known a few homophobes, and they really do worry about stuff like that.
2) It can be, but SERIOUS hardware geeks wouldn't want to be mistaken for a "mere" gamer, thus their disdain for RGB.
3) True; I have about 100 blue LEDs inside my case window. I wondered, so I checked (about 1c lower case temp when off, if that).
4) OCD is common, and when considering a purchase, seeing a visible flaw makes them wonder what else is wrong, "under the hood". Without LEDs, the question never comes up.
5) As I said, it makes them FEEL cool, I never said it make them LOOK cool, which obviously it doesn't.

This will pass - some day in the near future, people will be like, "you have RGB LEDs? that's so 2016!" or "2016 called, they want their RGB LEDs back!".

"Real men" don't have the need to start out sentences with "real men".

I can only assume you are asking what "real men" are instead of defining.

As for performance vs looks...You can have both. If you couldn't...There is going to be a whole bunch of hot rodders throughout the generations that are going to be really confused as to what they have been doing all these years.

I think your argument is null and void.

The comment prior to yours said basically the same as you did, without being an asshole about it, you should try it sometime.

No thanks. I tend not to read comments and when I read something that I feel I need to reply to, I reply to it in the way I see fit.
