PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X Coming at Computex 2014

TUL Corporation, a leading manufacturer of AMD graphic cards, is going to showcase the most powerful and fastest R9 290X solution at Computex 2014, the PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X. Except Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X, we're going to display our unique fan design, the Double Blades, and PowerColor patented device, the Turbo Timer.

Whole new generation of Devil 13
The 3rd generation, Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X, is packed with dual Hawaii XT cores, designed to tackle the most demanding HD titles. It operates at 1000 MHz for core clock and 1350 MHz for memory, using 512-bit X2 memory interface with 8 GB of GDDR5 memory, breaking out the limitation of extremely gaming performance.

The Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X is built with carefully-design Platinum Power Kit and ultra-efficient thermal design. It consists of massive 15-phase power delivery, PowerIRstage, Super Cap and Ferrite Core Choke, providing the stability and reliability for such high-end graphics solution. To qualify for Devil 13, it utilizes efficient trio fan design with Double Blades, two pieces of large die-cast panel, total 10pcs of heat pipes, and enormous surface of aluminum cooling fin, achieving a perfect balance between thermal solution and noise reduction. We add several features which are gamers exclusive. The Devil 13 backlighting glows a bright red color with the logo pulsating slowly, delivering exceptional outlook; the Dual BIOS button design allows gamers to pursuit extreme performance in the easiest way; 4 units of 8 pin PCI-E power connector draw more power, offering constant and stable power input. What's more, to honor Devil 13 users, we bundle our latest Devil 13 with the most top-notch gaming mouse, the Razer Ouroboros. We believe our Devil 13 users are deserved to have the best.

Turbo Timer & Double Blades
Except Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X, we're going to demo our patent pending device, Turbo Timer, which is designed to keep the graphics card cooler running for a pre-specified period after the PC powered off. Furthermore, for the revolutionary fan design Double Blades, we're going to show you how it works to generate most airflow than other fan designs.

The name :p
It mostly is going to be that its an air cooled card, with 4 8 pin connectors, and a coolness factor that's off the charts (lol).

I wish to see the price of these, depending on where it is it could end up being a game changer for the dual GPU wars at the moment (Meaning mostly if its cheaper than reference which in reality is a long shot considering what it comes with).
oh the name :p :slap:

well, would like to see how an air cooler would cool this dual gpu hawaii. Everybody knows that hawaii chips are very hot.

But the name dual core? wow, maybe somebody will make quad core GPU :roll:

If they do, they will have earned some free business from me because saying I have a Quad GPU card in my system would just sound amazing :P.

well its a non official 295X2 just like a Asus ARES II to the 7990

but the 295x2 chips work at a higher frequencies than a 290X so this one is on air dual slot can be OC even more and quad 8pin ... yet i fail to see its viability versus the 295x2 unless the price is around 2x a 290X
altho the difference is obvious : Air cooling :D:roll:

edit: and name .... thanks @GhostRyder :roll:

I am sure alot will buy the "dual core" if it is alot cheaper than 295X2. Cause I am sure, if somebody buy this, they will put them under water. Air cooling 290x chips are a "no go" as the chips are very very very hot

Well you can, the after market cooling solutions provided decent cooling and kept temps at the normal expected levels of any aftermarket card. I think in this case with the dual GPU variant, its going to come down to how well this new design works at dissipating that much heat. Either way though if I had been a patient man I should have waited for something like this and bought a pair of these over my trio of 290X cards and put some EK blocks with dual slot adapters for a quad GPU setup and moved to a smaller form factor once Haswell-E came around.

Its a neat card, but its going to come down to where the price is. I am kinda worried that its going to be around the same or more for it because of all the modifications and the mouse included.

The irony is that this round it is completely reversed from the 7990 idea. Last round it was a 3 fan cooler reference with an AIO liquid cooler on the aftermarket version (Ares II), now its an AIO for the reference model and a 3 Fan cooler for the aftermarket!

totally what i thought when i saw that :roll:
also i am quite delighted i will get a reference R9 290 for cheap soon if the prolimatech MK-26 i have fits on it i might use a dual 140mm on it with some vrm/ram heatsink (the one bundled with the MK-26 are all unusable xD)

I know, its such a weird concept in my book with this system! :laugh:
Yea, I kinda wish I had just waited it out and bought mine as cheap as they are now. I mean I payed 550 for each of my 290X with BF4 coupons before the price hike kicked in (PowerColor models were for some reason slow on newegg to jump up in price). I now though wish I had waited for this card because I could have bought 2 of these things and made a Micro-ATX machine. I actually may for fun sell off 2 of my 290X's and grab one of these to do a Tri-Fire system with it in a small package depending on the price.:D
