PowerColor Teases RX 500 Series Red Devil's Upgraded VRM Circuitry

Marketing rebranded cards is a much greater effort than selling the achievements and improvements of a fully new product launch. And word on the street is AIB partners that have to deal with rebrands don't really enjoy doing so. Having to sell the old as new is a tough sell, especially so when virtually no extra features seem to have been implemented. AMD itself is marketing their new RX 500 series as worthy improvements to its R9 390 graphics cards, for what it's worth. And as such, AIB's have to come up with original, out-of-the-box ways of peddling what is pretty much their old stuff as if it was new.

Recently, we've seen MSI showcasing a "3rd Gen FinFet 14" production process for its RX 570 Gaming X; now, PowerColor is looking to increase the attractiveness factor on its RX 580 Red Devil and Red Devil Golden Sample graphics cards (of which we've seen a teaser here and there) by showcasing an improved, reinforced VRM design for its upcoming graphics cards, with a "Platinum Power Kit", which includes Dr.Mos and a top-of-the-line Digital Power delivery system. Its VRM, however, keeps the 6-phase design that was already present on the RX 480. Here's hoping that the additions to PwerColor's card, alongside the Red Devil's purported 8+6-pin power delivery, will allow for higher overclocks, perhaps making this card a prime candidate for more efficient, exotic cooling solutions.

AMD's RX 500 Series Launch Confirmed on April 18th

AMD is on a roll with product launches lately, having just pushed out what is probably the most significant update in mainstream CPUs in years: the Ryzen 5 line of desktop processors. You can look over TPU's review of the 1500X and 1600X here and here. AMD is looking towards powering another central part of your desktop processor, though, with the impending launch of the RX 500 line of GPUs.

Confirmed as rebrands of previous-generation Polaris 10, the new RX 500 series will carry the new Polaris 20 XTX and Polaris 20 XL chips, which are expected to feature higher clocks (in the range of 1300-1400 MHz) from AIBs, before your own overclocking. PowerColor has officially confirmed the launch date as April 18th through social media with a tease for their new Red Devil graphics card. Now if only we could see Vega on this new horizon...

PowerColor RX 580 Red Devil Golden Sample Pictured With 6-pin, 8-pin Connectors

Remember that PowerColor Red Devil teaser from a few days back? While the source link is no longer available, it would seem that someone has gotten their hands on a (golden) sample, one of the two different SKUs that PowerColor is expected to launch around the RX 580. This Golden Sample edition sports a beefier, higher-performing 2.5-slot cooling solution, compared to the expected RX 580 Red Devil's 2.0-slot one. This sample, however, sports something unusual for a card with the power envelope expected from the RX 580: two auxiliary power cables, one 6-pin, as is par of the course with previous-generation RX 480 cards of which the RX 580 is a rebrand; and another, 8-pin one.

PowerColor Teases New Red Devil Graphics Card - Probably RX 580

PowerColor has pulled some images out of its teaser hat, bringing us some classy, though ultimately uninformative pics of an upcoming Red Devil card. The details that can be gleaned point to a dual-fan design and some semblance of LED illumination (which should always be expected in any recent product launch).

Though we can't know for sure what graphics card this Red Devil tease refers to, logic would dictate that it's the best-performing, upcoming card that we know off. Pulling a publicity stunt for the second-fastest card to arrive (RX 570) just wouldn't make sense, and the timing puts this teaser much closer to (what is expected to be) the rebranded RX 500 line than to the much-awaited RX Vega line of graphics cards. The latter will probably drop in around the same time as Arkane's Prey, which launches on the fifth of May.

PowerColor Outs "Unlocked BIOS" for RX 480 RED Devil

PowerColor today released an optional "Unlocked BIOS" for its Radeon RX 480 RED Devil graphics card. Available through PowerColor DevilClub (and TechPowerUp), the BIOS is optional because it is intended only for power-users. The BIOS increases power-limits on the card, facilitating higher overclocking headroom and clock speed sustainability.

The obvious trade-offs here are higher power-consumption, temperatures, and noise. In fact, PowerColor strongly recommends against using the modded card with FurMark as the company found that it will damage even non-overclocked cards with the new BIOS. PowerColor, however, stated that flashing your card with the optional BIOS will not void your warranty.

VTX3D Ceases Operations, PowerColor to Honor its Warranty Service

AMD Radeon add-in board (AIB) partner VTX3D announced that it has ceased operations. A subsidiary of TUL, which also owns the more popular PowerColor brand, VTX3D primarily targeted the APAC and EMEAI markets, and most of its products had a distinct PowerColor signature on their design and build-quality. This is because both brands were manufactured at TUL, a major PCB contract-manufacturing foundry. Following its demise, VTX3D announced that its sister-brand PowerColor will honor warranty and RMA services for existing owners of VTX3D products.

PowerColor Working on a Custom Radeon Pro Duo?

PowerColor teased this image of its next "DEVIL" series graphics card, as part of its latest giveaway. The teaser states "a new devil is born," sparking off speculation that this could be a custom-design dual-GPU graphics card based on the "Fiji" silicon. It's unlikely that this is a product based on the upcoming RX 480 because the company reserves the "DEVIL" sub-brand for only its fastest solutions. Calling this card the Radeon Pro Duo Devil13 could dent the "gamer-professional" marketing of the Pro Duo, so if this is indeed a dual-"Fiji" graphics card, PowerColor could avoid using the Pro Duo SKU name.

PowerColor DevilBox XConnect Enclosure Pictured

PowerColor showed off its external graphics enclosure for AMD Radeon graphics cards that take advantage of AMD XConnect technology, the DevilBox. This is more than a graphics enclosure. It plugs into the host machine over a 40 Gbps Thunderbolt 3 connection, and puts out not just a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot for a wide range of graphics cards, but also provides a SATA 6 Gb/s port for a 2.5-inch internal drive bay, two USB 3.1 ports (one each of type-A and type-C), four USB 3.0, and a wired gigabit Ethernet connection. Powering it all is an internal 500W power supply. You can drop in any high-end, air-cooled graphics card, including the Radeon R9 Fury, and the GeForce GTX TITAN X. Topping it all off is RGB internal lighting. Why not.

PowerColor Next-Gen LCS Liquid Cooling Solutions Pictured

PowerColor is ready with its next-generation LCS (liquid cooling system) VGA cooling solutions. The first one in the series is a close-loop all-in-one solution for single-GPU cards, which consists of a pump+block, plumbed to a 360 mm x 120 mm radiator (at least for this prototype). Much of the liquid cooling parts have "GamerStorm" design language, hinting at DeepCool being the OEM. This single-GPU cooler could be launched with upcoming "Polaris" graphics cards. Don't let the radiator size be any indication of the upcoming chip's thermal characteristics.

Also unveiled is a new full-coverage water block for dual-GPU graphics cards hinting at the possibility of a custom-design Radeon Pro Duo by PowerColor being under development. The block appears to be more than 1-slot thick, and uses the additional volume for two independent coolant channels, so one GPU doesn't get second-hand coolant from another GPU.

AMD Readies 4 GB Variant of the Radeon R9 390

In a bid to step up the pressure on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 970 and the product-stack below it, AMD is getting its add-in board (AIB) graphics card partners to launch cost-effective variants of the Radeon R9 390, with 4 GB of memory, instead of the 8 GB that was standard to the SKU. These cards feature 4 GB of memory across the chip's 512-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, and could help AMD and its partners shave a few dozen Dollars off the standard version, which is currently selling for as low as $309.

4 GB of memory would make the R9 390 a complete re-brand of the R9 290, if not for its clock speeds. The custom-design variants of the 4 GB R9 390 ship with clock speeds that are 10% higher than those of the R9 290, and the performance was found to be proportionately higher, by Expreview. Of the three cards spotted crawling their way out of product launch pipes in China, the ones from XFX and PowerColor retain the design and packaging of their 8 GB siblings; while Sapphire mated the chip with a new dual-fan cooler with a meaty, split aluminium fin-stack heatsink.
