PowerColor Reveals the Devil 13 HD6970

By , PowerColor HD6970 Devil 13 - Source: PowerColor PR | B 24 comments

PowerColor has released their new Devil 13 HD6970 graphics card designed to fulfill the most demanding of HD titles.

The Devil 13 utilizes a 12-phase power design, direct FET, a proadlizer capacitor, voltage read points, 2nd generation DirectX 11 technology and HD3D technology. The card is equipped with two ultra large 92mm cooling fans, providing better air flow than a normal 80mm fan. The four large heat pipes help to dissipate heat from the copper base, which covers the complete graphics card, to provide ideal thermal cooling, along with the dual fans.  

"The Devil 13 includes voltage measurement points for gamers to measure and monitor the GPU voltage by multimeter. The Devil 13 is also pimped out with LED lighting signals that show the working status of current GPU, delivering a stylish experience while gaming."

The Devil 13 has default clock settings at 880MHz core speed and 1375MHz memory speed. With a flick of a switch, the graphics card's base frequencies increase by 10% to 960Mhz core and 1425Mhz memory, boosting up gaming performance to the next level.

In addition, the card has a 256-bit memory interface, 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM @ 5500 Mhz (5700 MHz OC), CrossFireX support, and five display outputs (dual DVI, dual mini DisplayPort and one HDMI).

The Devil 13 comes bundled with a set of screwdrivers, a DVI dongle, 6P to 8P power cable (x2) and optional CrossFire and Mini DP to DP cable, all packed in into an eye-catching black and red box.

    It all sounds great except that it only provides PCIe 2.1 support instead of PCIe 3.0. So, I'll just wait until AMD/Radeon comes out with their 7000 series GPU's.

    whats with people with big mouths that can't just look at a new product for what it is? You think we all dont know that there are already bottom mount PSU cases? no sh*t sherlock. Its a new item for the manufacturer, its not like they released an Apple patent for it, get over it.

    let me guess...powercolor paid tomshardware for this aricle...there are already 6970s with similar heatinks and vrm configurations already available.

    Benchmarks to prove that it matters? If you have a full 16 lanes feeding a 16X 2.1 slot, I think you'll be fine. You would need a 79xx in your hands before you start worrying about 16 lane interface bandwidth too much.

    Great. That makes the placement of this article even worse. They're implicitly stating that this is not "Sponsored," and then writing "Learn more about the PowerColor Devil 13 HD6970 at PowerColor's product page."
