PowerColor Devil 370X Benchmarks Leaked

AMD’s budget-focused 370X is designed to compete with the GTX 950 and could instigate a price war in the lower-end market. The 370X features 1280 stream processors and utilizes the entire Pitcairn architecture. Finally, the raw performance numbers are emerging from custom-cooled models such as the PowerColor Devil 370x. This particular card contains a core of 1180MHz and memory frequency of 5600MHz.

The PowerColor Devil 370X opts for a rather understated matte black backplate which prevents unwanted drooping and implements a more premium feel.

This GPU is powered by 2 6-pin PCI-E connectors which should help with overclocking potential.

In terms of connectivity, the PowerColor Devil includes 2 mini DisplayPorts 1.2, 1 HDMI (most probably 1.4) and 2 DVI-I connectors. There is also a vent to help with airflow and push heat outside the case.

The cooler itself is based on a copper 4-heatpipe design with ample room for two extremely large heatsinks.

The shroud is constructed from metal and painted in a gorgeous black and red finish. While this colour scheme is overdone, it looks fantastic and oozes build quality. Additionally, a 3 fan setup allows for reasonable temperatures at a low decibel level.

A closer look at the PCB shows the card’s power circuitry, core and VRAM layout.

Moving onto the actual results, we can see the PowerColor Devil 370x reaches a 3DMARK 11 X-score of 2761. To put this into perspective, a reference GTX 960 usually manages around X3350.

The GPU was also tested in Fire Strike Extreme and achieved a Graphics score of 3035. This easily outperforms many overclocked 270X cards which attain a figure around 2700-2800.

Perhaps the most important results revolve around gaming benchmarks at the mainstream 1920×1080 standard. The chart below records the lowest and average frame rate from a wide array of demanding games. In descending order, the benched titles are Assassin’s Creed Rogue, Dragon Age Inquisition, Lords of the Fallen, Project Cars, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, Zombie Army Trilogy, Moonlight Blade and World of Tanks.

Judging from the benchmarks and gaming scores, it seems the PowerColor Devil 370X will be a stonking card for customers on a tight budget.
