ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Ti Poseidon Platinum Video Card Review

Overclocking – Let's See How Far We Can Go


ASUS pushes the clock speeds on its ROG video cards as high as it can, so we didn't have any additional OC headroom. I expected as much, with the performance on the card not changing at all – only a few percentage points between the 'stock' clocks on the factory overclocked card, and the barely-there overclock we were able to manage.


Anything above 20-30MHz on the GPU resulted in severe instability, with black screens popping up and a reboot required.


ASUS has already pushed the card to its near maximum, so you will only want to overclock the GTX 980 Ti Poseidon Platinum if you're putting it under water.



Power Consumption


Nearly all of the GTX 980 Ti cards have the same power consumption, coming it at around 360W with our full system. We have 360W of total system power consumption.





With the ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Ti Poseidon Platinum under full load, we had around 340W of total system power consumption. Not too bad at all.



Sound Testing


Even during our BF4 gaming sessions, the ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Ti Poseidon Platinum didn't make a peep. Once the fans were manually cranked up, it wasn't as loud as some of the other cards we've tested.
