PowerColor Launches Devil 13 Dual Core R9 390 Graphics Card
Bohs Hansen / 3 years ago
It was just a matter of time before we got it and here it is: the fastest R9 390 series graphics card. The just launched PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 390 is packed with dual GRENADA cores running at 1GHz and 16GB GDDR5 RAM running at 1350MHz via a new high-speed 512-bit X2 memory interface.
The new Devil 13 card isn’t a small one, it is a monster. The oversized card goes beyond the IO shield despite already being a triple-slot card. That really isn’t a surprise considering the cooling required to keep two such chips running at peak efficiency.
It consists of a massive 15-phase power delivery, PowerIRstage, Super Cap and Ferrite Core Choke that provides the stability and reliability for such high-end graphics solution. Three Double Blades Fans are attached on top of the enormous surface of aluminum fins heatsink that is connected with a total of 10 pieces of heat pipes and 2 pieces of large die-cast panels. This should create a perfect balance between the thermal solution and noise reduction.
The PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 390 has LED backlighting that glows a bright red color where the Devil 13 logo pulsates slowly. It also comes with dual-BIOS and it requires four 8-pin PCI-E power connections. The graphics card even comes with a mouse included as well, and it isn’t just a no-name one. Included is the Razer Ouroboros mouse, just because. The output connections are a two DL-DVI-D, one HDMI, and one DisplayPort.
Powercolor did not announce an MSRP at this time, but it surely won’t come cheap.
