The First Look
Looking at the Asus ROG Poseidon Platinum GTX 1080 Ti for the first time, what we have is a regular-looking premium graphics card with a dual fan setup. The cooling system installed in the card uses an open two-and-a-half slot design so the Poseidon works perfectly fine without using the fans until the temperature hits 55 degrees. After the 55 degrees mark, the fans are turned on so that better care of cooling is taken afterward.
With two Display Port connectors, 2x HDMI 2.0 and 1x DVI-D in place, the card comes with Asus Fan Connect II feature. Also, the card has two 4-pin fan headers so that the PWM and DC can work fine. We are digging deep into this, so stay tuned until we find out more interesting things about the ROG Poseidon Platinum GTX 1080 Ti by ASUS for you.
