PowerColor has released a new card in the Devil series of graphics cards, the Devil HD7870. The Devil HD7870 features higher clock speeds as well as a better PCB, and of course a superior cooler as compared to the reference AMD Radeon HD7870.
The card features a clock speed of 1100 MHz and an effective memory speed of 5.0 GHz. For comparison, the reference AMD Radeon HD7870 GHz Edition has a clock speed of 1000 MHz and an effective memory speed of 4.8 GHz. The memory is 2 GB of GDDR5 memory that runs over a 256-bit wide memory interface. The card's PCB features a 7+1+1 VRM design, with support for digital PWM, and is built with Super Capacitors.
The Devil HD7870's cooler is one with a large aluminum fin stack that is coupled to a total of four heat pipes. This fin stack is cooled by three quiet fans. As a result of this cooler, PowerColor boasts that the card is 25 percent cooler and 18 percent quieter than the reference HD7870.
Sadly, there was no word on what the card would cost, nor was there any information on availability.
