Powercolor Shows its Radeon HD 7970 X2 Devil13

If you're in the market for one crazy video card that's meant to deliver frames like there's no tomorrow, you may want to check out Powercolor's HD 7970 X2 Devil13. As expected, it packs dual Tahiti XT GPUs (for 2048 SP) on a single PCB. Add 6GB of GDDR5 and you're looking at a card that'll cost $1000.

The back of the card features a red button for the dual BIOS functionality, as well as two DVI, one HDMI and 2 mini-DisplayPort. Not surprising given the size of that triple fan cooler, the Devil13 card will take up three slots in your system.

Look for this one next month.

    What a monstrosity...

    I still want one though, lol.

    And notice that it breaks the 300W compliance for the PCIe 2.0 :P

    I would still probably rock the GTX 690.

    Very good card and also would be VFM if it become cheaper than the 690 .
  • ojas
    So if this is not the 7990, what is?
  • CaedenV
    So freaking huge! It's even taller than a stock card... wow!

    Could be because it's PCIe 3.0....
  • How do I win this????

    I'm fairly sure it is not breaking the PCIe 300w compliance. See those 3 power connectors on the side? The extra power is not being drawn from the PCIe slot.

    I wonder if they will have the sams clock speeds as the "regular" 7970s? As previously - some older dual GPUs on a single PCB cards would have lower clocks due to higher heat output.

    This looks like a great card for multi monitor setups. This is going to have to cost slightly less than $1000 as you can get dual 7970's for less than 1000.

    Is it just me or does the gpu on the right look like it has a face on it? Photoshop? devilish coincidence?
