PowerColor Unveils the Devil 13 HD 7990 - First Video Card with Two Tahiti XT Cores
PowerColor, one of the leading AMD video card manufacturers, has taken the wraps off its newest creation, and this one is a monster. The Devil 13 HD 7990 video card has just been unveiled by PowerColor, which packs two Tahiti XT cores onto one PCB. This is effectively a 7970x2 video card, one that is designed to handle the demand of the latest video games. Each core runs at 925MHz stock but can be boosted to 1000MHz with a press of the dual BIOS button. The 6GB of GDDR5 memory comes in at 1375MHz (5500MHz effective). The Devil 13 is built to stay cool with its three fans and ten heat pipes wicking away any heat. The card features a 12+2+2 power phase design, along with digital PWM, super cap, UHB, and PowerIRstage in order to keep everything running nice and stable.
The PowerColor Devil 13 HD 7990 needs three 8-pin PCIe power cables and a minimum 850W power supply to keep you gaming long into the night. The rear of the card features a DualLink DVI-I port, a SingleLink DVI-D, HDMI, and two miniDisplayPorts. The HDMI and miniDP outputs are capable of 4096x2160 resolution, so you can play games in 4K provided you have the proper TV. The card also features CrossfireX support, but considering it comes in at a little over 5.5" wide and 12.4" long, I hope you have an E-ATX motherboard for the pair.
Included with every Devil 13 HD 7990 is the Wiha Tool Kit and PowerColor PowerJack, which is an 11 piece set of screwdrivers to fix any machine and a support bracket to keep the card from bending, respectively. There was no mention of a price or release date for the Devil 13, but hopefully we find out both soon.
