PowerColor Radeon R9 295X2 Devil13 Up Close

We went up close with PowerColor's air-cooled Radeon R9 295X2 Devil13 graphics card. Although technically an R9 295X2, the company is choosing to call it "dual-R9 290X." The card is massive, easily bigger in size than even NVIDIA's GTX TITAN-Z. It uses a huge triple-slot cooling solution with individual aluminium fin heatsinks for each of the two GPUs, and a base plate cooling the bridge chip, VRM, and memory; ventilated by three 100 mm fans that can be individually tweaked. The card draws power from four (yes, four) 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include two dual-link DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort.

When AMD chose to give the R9 295X2 liquid cooling it had only one thing on its mind, to tame its noise. Given that, the question on everyone's mind would be how loud this air-cooled card is. PowerColor's card, much like AMD's reference R9 290X, features two BIOSes, "Performance" and "Quiet." Even with all the show floor noise, the card was audible in "performance" mode. We didn't get to hear it out in the "quiet" mode, but PowerColor assured us that it's working on getting the card quiet. Unlike AMD's reference card, PowerColor may have to stiffen the card's throttle to achieve that.

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

PowerColor Readies Air-Cooled Radeon R9 295X2 Devil13

While AMD may have scored one up over NVIDIA by making its 500-Watt dual-GPU graphics card, the Radeon R9 295X2, a 2-slot thick product that draws power from just two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, AMD's implementation also lugs along a radiator and coolant tubing that not everyone may find room in their cases for. Some enthusiasts may simply not trust factory-fitted water cooling solutions. For such people and more, who'd like to keep their builds "dry," PowerColor is coming up with the first truly non-reference design R9 295X2, the Devil13.

Pictured below, the R9 295X2 Devil13 from PowerColor features a completely custom-design PCB that is said to feature a meatier VRM than the one you get on reference design boards; which draws power from 4 (that's right, four) 8-pin PCIe power connectors. The PCB appears taller but just as long as the reference one, and features a back-plate that doubles up as structural reinforcement. The cooler is an interesting piece of engineering. It appears to feature two independent aluminium fin heatsinks, each over one of the two GPUs, and a base-plate heatsink to cool the memory, VRM, and bridge chip. The contraption is then ventilated by three 100 mm fans that appear to feature lateral+axial hybrid air-flow blades, on their impellers. PowerColor could launch the R9 295X2 Devil13 at Computex 2014, if not sooner.
