Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
Powercolor’s Devil line of video cards is well known for its highest end cooling and performance. Powercolor’s latest addition to the Devil series is the Devil HD 7870. The Devil HD 7870 gets a 10% overclock to 1100MHz from 1000MHz while the memory gets a marginal overclock of about 5% from the stock 1200MHz/4.8GHz effective. Powercolor have equipped their platinum power kit which provides a 7+1+1 digital phase VRM. Additionally there is digital PWM and super capacitors equipped to the design. The triple fan coolr uses a pair of 80mm fans and a larger middle 90mm fan as well as four heat pipes, this is 25% cooler and 18% quieter than the reference design.
As with all Devil cards there are some extra goodies such as a uniquely skinned Powerup Tuner software interface and a bundled Devil Gaming mousepad. Pricing or availability was not revealed by Powercolor but think “standard” HD 7870 price plus 15-20%. Availability will be in the coming few weeks for major markets (such as Europe and the USA) as manufacturers get stock.
