    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.

    Please visit Nangang Exhibition Hall, #404 meeting room and get impressed by new technologies introduced by PowerColor at Computex 2014!

    I think PowerColor meant gamers. Germs would just get the card for coin mining. :D

    You think Powercolor could have one of their English speaking reps do their English press releases. :rolleyes:

    4x 8pins!!! Should relieve some of the PSU issues folks have had.

    nice card, but i dont get it with their shroud design. and the fans, only 5 blades? so it should spin pretty fast to move more air

    There's actually 10 blades. The 5 smaller ones are supposed to direct air more evenly towards the middle of the fan. I think air cooling a 500W+ card is a bit optimistic, personally. We'll see, I guess.

    Three slots worth of radiator should do the work good enough.

    yeah but i dunno, small fins wont flow more air, it may improve the airflow but i dont think it would boost the cooler performance and it looks bad

    I am sure they did some preevaluation of this design and know its performance.

    Awesome I've always wanted a barbeque grill in my PC!

    In all seriousness though, kudos to PowerColor for designing a dual chip Hawaii XT board that can be cooled with just air.

    I seriously hope they're not going to keep that display configuration.

    The fans look like they could chop off fingers.

    with a Razer Ouroboros include ... hum ... dream on, not that they will add the value of a "gift" to the retail price ofc ... but i rather would be buying this card without that mouse, oh well huge reselling potential for the mouse, for those who dont like at all Razer (knowing the price of a Ouroboros, indeed good bargain)

    FWIU AMD is not allowing custom output configuration for the 290. It might also apply to this card.

    Hmmm, could be a nice card, 3 slots of air cooled Hawaii niceness.

    I hope Wizz gets one, to test out for us. I also hope it is not the price of a used car!

    :laugh:

    Ha, love the "turbo timer" idea. This card looks pretty, and I can't wait to see the power consumption with 4x8pin connectors! :eek:

    However, whoever wrote the press release at PowerColor didn't do a very good job, as this one is riddled with grammatical errors, not even counting the whole germs>gamers hiccup.

    About time we start seeing some non-reference dual-290X cards. What's even more refreshing is that it's completely air-cooled and has a proper number of power connectors. Kudos, Powercolor.

    They might include the Razer Ouroboros ($150) to add value rather than undercut the 295x2 price. I hope not, but we might be looking at another $1500 card. I'd rather see a full cover water block option. With the custom PCB it might be a better O/C'er if given proper cooling. I just don't see how an air cooler is going to accomplish that. Could be wrong though, we'll see.

    for me it's more 185chf (206.05$) for a Ouroboros ... yet it's (imho and imho only) a horrible mouse highly overpriced over any other "wireless gaming mouse" who have better build quality to back up their lower price.

    as for the rest indeed i agree.

    well at this moment it can be marketed as : "the one and only card that can make you a smoothie in the morning with 3 time the speed of a normal blender"
