The Poseidon 1080 Ti not only lived up to my expectations, but it surpassed they by a fair amount. The design and aesthetic of the Poseidon 1080 Ti is second to none. I love the neutral color scheme that ASUS has gone with this generation. This allows the Poseidon to fit into essentially any color theme build. The design of the water block makes more sense than previous generations of the Poseidon. With G ¼ threads on the top and bottom of the card, it allows the user more option than just one in and one out like previous generations.

Performance of the Poseidon 1080 Ti was stellar. This card handled everything I threw at it with ease. It stayed well above 30 FPS on max setting in 4k on all titles. In many games, the Poseidon 1080 TI averaged over 60 FPS in 4k. The card really shined in 1440p and 3440 x 1440. The only 2 games that averaged below 60 FPS in these resolutions were Hitman and Watch Dogs 2. The Poseidon 1080 Ti proved itself to be overkill for 1080p gaming. In the case of Overwatch, this card even maxed out the FPS counter at 300 FPS.

At the time of the review, you can pick up the Poseidon 1080 Ti from ASUS on New Egg or Amazon for $859.99. As for a 1080 Ti, that may seem a bit pricey. However, keep in mind that this card can run on air or water. A good GPU water block runs $150 or so. So, I’d say the price of the Poseidon is well justified. Especially since, even on air, it dominated any other 1080 Ti I’ve personally tested. With the combination of the performance and great look of the card, it almost sells itself.
