ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Ti Poseidon Platinum Video Card Review

This is where you can fast forward to the final section of the review, and get a quick recap and points on the ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Ti Poseidon Platinum.


What's Hot


Two Cooling Options: This is the second card to feature dual cooling setups, giving you the choice of the stock air cooling (which is great), or to go down the water cooling route. ASUS does this with a card that isn't any thicker than a dual-slot GTX 980 Ti, too.


The Most Unique Cooling Yet:

ZOTAC surprised us with their GTX 980 Ti ArcticStorm, but ASUS takes it to a new level with the GTX 980 Ti Poseidon Platinum. If you're building a new enthusiast level gaming PC, the ASUS motherboard that you might be using will be well matched with the GTX 980 Ti Poseidon Platinum.



Great Performance: It isn't quite as fast as the best offerings from ZOTAC, but ASUS has pleased us with the performance side of the GTX 980 Ti Poseidon Platinum. All resolutions we tested were completely playable, including 3440x1440 and 4K.



What's Not


Not The Best GTX 980 Ti: ZOTAC has really taken the GPU performance crown lately, but ASUS is only a few steps behind at the moment.
