Having to rely on amd for crossfire profiles to get this thing working properly is a big risk to anyone that buys this card

What's more, to honor Devil 13 users, we have included the top-notch gaming mouse, the Razer Ouroboros, as a free gift inside the box. Why? Simply because we strongly believe our Devil 13 users deserves to have the best of the best.
that statement is at most an insult ... well at last a little cashback if you sell the mouse that you got for free in the bundle ... dahahah

dunno i kinda like the Devil 13 look (funny how AMD show Hawaii, Tonga and other older GCN card are still way worth it... i would have kept my 290 if not for a giveaway )
waiting to see the next gen from both brands...

Did you mean: grammar.

"grammer
A common typo for grammar. Most commonly found in sentences that correct someone else's grammar.
Your and idiot because you have bad grammer."

you did it on purpose?`right? (i hope :laugh: )

Just find the benches for the previous 290X Devil 13 card. On anything below 4K (2X 4GB as apposed to 2X 8GB on the new card) they should be about the same, seeing as how it's basically the same card. Even looks like it uses the same heatsink and comes with the same free mouse. I assume they just added 8GB more of RAM, changed "290X" to "390X" and called it a day, same as AMD.

Here ya go, http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/powercolor-devil-13-dual-amd-r9-290x-review,3853.html

And the previous card was known for being insanely loud, and having quality control issues with the sink not making adequate contact with the chips.
I guess benches and amd engineers say the opposite, but a random claim in a forum about the name change is probably true.

hello Titan Z epic failure card $3000
Titan Z and Titan Black are nowhere in any charts, nowhere in the market and both products had 0 lifespan.
on the other hand, r9 295x2 is still up and thriving.

Looks like it'll be a great option for VR builds if you can't afford Fury X2, especially as the 295X2 has been discontinued, and as NVIDIA have nothing to compete in the VR space.

Lets hope the heatsink makes contact with the die this time.... :twitch:
:)

Four 8 pins + the slot is good for 675 watts :eek: I hope I get to see some benches somewhere on this card.
shouldnt they supply a 2kW power supply as part of the package? :D

nope it IS the same core.
http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/2397/radeon-r9-290.html
http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/2664/radeon-r9-390.html
compare the 2 links side by side... only the mem/core change ;)

despite the one in the 390 being named Grenada, it's just a renamed Hawaii, just a speedbump mem/core and more memory makes the difference.
(well my 290 was a 4gb 390 as i used it with the sames frequencies ahah... )


recheck ahahah it's even worse in reality ...
http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/2583/radeon-r9-290x2.html
http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/2755/radeon-r9-390-x2.html

the 290X2 was a 290X X2 in reality ... i see the confusion

so the 290X2 Devil13 would be a good example to show how the 390X2 Devil13 would perform since a 390 is more or less equal 290X

290 -> 390 -> 290X -> 390X

290/390 has shaders/TMUs disabled where 290X and 390X does not. The only thing 390 has on 290X is the faster memory clock and more memory.

The only thing 390 has on 290X is the faster memory clock and more memory.
That's the only thing that the 390X has over the 290X as well. It's a shame that faster DRAM wasn't put on these cards IMHO. There are GDDR5 ICs that will operate between 7 and 8 GT/s and my own testing seems to indicate that memory clocks on my 390 scale almost linearly from 1000Mhz to 1600Mhz. It makes me wonder if a 390 or 390X had and could drive 1800-2000Mhz memory instead, how performance would look. That's something nVidia cards have over AMD and that's significantly higher memory clocks.

TUL Corporation, a leading and innovative manufacturer of AMD graphic cards since 1997, has proudly announced a new and most powerful graphics card in the world among AMD Radeon R9 390 series. The PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 390 is packed with dual GRENADA core, designed to tackle the most demanding high end gaming titles on the market. It utilizes 16 GB of GDDR5 memory with a core clock speed at 1000 MHz, and 1350 MHz for memory clock speed which is connected via a new high speed 1024-bit (512-bit x2) memory interface.

PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 390 is built with carefully-designed Platinum Power Kit and ultra-efficient thermal design. It consists of massive 15-phase power delivery, PowerIRstage, Super Cap and Ferrite Core Choke that provides the stability and reliability for such high-end graphics solution. To support maximum performance and to qualify for the Devil 13 cooling system, 3 Double Blades Fans are attached on top of the enormous surface of aluminum fins heatsink connected with total of 10 pieces of heat pipes and 2 pieces of large die-cast panels. This superb cooling solution achieves a perfect balance between thermal solution and noise reduction. The PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 390 has the LED backlighting that glows a bright red color, pulsating slowly on the Devil 13 logo.



Luxury Packing and Bundling
The Dual BIOS button design allows gamers to pursuit extreme performance in the easiest way to control. Four units of 8 pin PCI-E power connector draws more power offering constant and stable power input. What's more, to honor Devil 13 users, we have included the top-notch gaming mouse, the Razer Ouroboros, as a free gift inside the box. Why? Simply because we strongly believe our Devil 13 users deserves to have the best of the best.

The PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 390 graphics card supports for AMD LiquidVR, GCN Architecture, Mantle, Exploit DirectX© 12, AMD CorssFire, Virtual Super Resolution, HD3D technology, Frame Rate Target Control, and AMD FreeSync technologies. Once more, the Devil 13 has risen from Hell and will once again dominate the extreme gaming world with ease.



For more information, visit the product page.
Can't wait to see some benchmarks! The power draw and heat may be concerning :0.

Instead of a mouse... they should give you a 1500W PSU. Lol.
Haha indeed they should! I'm guessing about 600w-700w draw on this monster
