PowerColor Introduces Two RX 580 Red Devil Video Card Models

After weeks of leaks and rumours, PowerColor’s Radeon RX 580 Red Devil graphics card has officially arrived in two different models: The RX 580 Red Devil 8GB GDDR5 and the RX 580 Red Devil Golden Sample 8GB GDDR5. Both look identical with similar features including the GPU, dual-fan cooling, and dual- bios but differs with the size of the heatsink and factory overclock.

While the RX 570 is equipped with 2048 stream processors, the RX 580 GPU has 2304 SPs with a 2000 MHz memory clock speed on a 256-bit memory bus. Users can switch between the factory overclock and the silent-overclock preset BIOS on either RX 580 Red Devil and RX 580 Red Devil Golden Sample with the former having a core clock of 1380 MHz (1355 MHz in silent mode) and the latter having a higher 1425 MHz core clock (1411MHz in silent mode).

Both RX 580 Red Devil versions have an 8-pin and a 6-pin power connector and have a 6+1 multi-phase GPU power design utilizing Driver MOSFETs. In terms of heatsink, the regular RX 580 Red Devil is equipped with four 8mm nickel-plated copper heatpipes while the Golden Sample version uses a combination of 8mm and 6mm heatpipes. Both use a pair of 10mm dual-ball bearing fans to actively cool the heatsink and the PCB below it, with a smart sensing technology that automatically stops the fan when the GPU temperature is detected to be below 60C for complete silence during most use.

A 1.5mm thick metal backplate is also pre-installed for added support and PCB integrity, preventing bending and sagging over time. Unlike the PowerColor RX 570 Red Devil however, the RX 580 Red Devil backplate is equipped with a red LED that lights up when in use.
