ASUS prepares GTX 980 Ti card with liquid cooling

Most video card makers prefer air coolers for their video cards but sometimes they use liquid cooling solutions for better performance and easier overclocking with ASUS being a notable exception – it is next to impossible to find an ASUS video card with a liquid cooler.

Well, this task has become somewhat easier now – the Taiwanese company works on a new GeForce GTX 980 Ti video card that will come with a liquid cooler right out of the box. The graphics card is called STRIX-980TI-P-GAMING-ICE and the liquid cooler, which covers the entire video card, is its main feature. Unfortunately the card comes with an unusual PCB with a 14-phase VRM power system, which means it is not for ordinary users. The card has two operational modes – default and software with each one of them offering different clock profiles. In the default mode the STRIX-980TI-P-GAMING-ICE runs its GPU at 1190 MHz (1291 MHz Turbo), while the software mode allows for even higher clock speeds – 1216 MHz (1317 MHz Turbo). The memory, in all cases, runs at 7200 MHz. This makes the STRIX-980TI-P-GAMING-ICE one of the fastest GTX 980 Ti cards on the market.

ASUS has also thought of the looks of the card – it comes with built-in RGB LEDs and a nice STRIX logo on top of the liquid cooler. In the rear the card has one DVI port, one HDMI port and three DisplayPorts.

ASUS has not announced the STRIX-980TI-P-GAMING-ICE just yet but the card is expected in the next few days. As to pricing it will likely sell for around USD 900 when it arrives.
