    Suggestion: GPU watercooled solution

    I know that Asus offers the Poseidon which is a hybrid air cooled and custom water cooled but I'd like to see an option that looks like the MSI Seagate, Gigabyte Waterforce or the EVGA Hybrid closed water cooler. I'm wishing for a RTX 2080 & 2080TI with a closed loop watercooling or Asus could make a kit that is sold separately as the one EVGA sells for the 20xx series , it would be a great chance to show off their new aio cooler (ROG Ryuo).

    Sounds plausible but limited market segment. Too many variables to cover it all.*

    Well the new matrix is an interesting design and something like what I was looking for... But how much does this monster weight O.o?

    Looking at this matrix design it’s more marketing propaganda than performance. Even the other designs are not capable of adequately cooling top shelf cards and will saturate easily making an OC out of the question. My rig has overkill with 2X 480 rads and a 360 and when I run a gpu intensive load with 2x 1080Ti cards overclocked my fans ramp up considerably. The antiquated rule of 120mm rad/device is just that, antiquated and from back when GPUs and CPUs seldom passed 100 watts. Now a single Ti GPU will pump every bit of 250 watts and more. *IMO the only way to get decent performance without feeling like you just entered a jet emigre testing faculty is a custom loop.*

    It weighs less than it costs.

    We'll see what the benchies look like. With Nvidia limiting power ceilings for partners it may not make a huge difference anyway. The benefit for that card may be in consistency rather than top marks. It's probably going to be more expensive than a typical vanity design so unless it makes a good showing I doubt many will buy it.

    Note that there are still many folks who aren't interested in a custom loop so any improvement in off-the-shelf solutions will have a market.

    I'm interested in the benchmark too... JustinThyme is right tho this massive card produce heat and sticking a AIO right on top of it might not be a big improvement..

    Not to mention where is that heat getting dumped? Right inside the case. Im sticking with marketing gimmick for those that dont know any better. Im putting my $$ that there will be zero performance gain over just a heat sink and air as that tiny amount of liquid is going to saturate in about 50 milliseconds. The only thing worse that this IMO is last seasons Poseidon. A tube running through the air heatsink only making contacts with the fins.....really? I was actually killing myself trying to pick up a pair of these until I saw a teardown and laughed so hard I nearly wet myself.
