PowerColor announced the launch of a custom-engineered graphics card that features some surprising specifications. The Devil 13 Dual Core R9 390 comes equipped with not one, but two Radeon R9 390 Grenada GPUs paired with 16 GB of GDDR5. PowerColor's engineers even created a customized 512-bit X2 memory interface to handle the doubled frame buffer.
PowerColor has clocked both GPUs at 1000 MHz, and to keep them cool, the company managed to install 10 copper heatpipes into the heatsink, which consists of aluminum fins and two large die-cast panels. Keeping the air flowing across the fins are three Double Blade Fans, which have pairs of dramatically different length fins, and large gaps in between.

With two of the most power hungry GPUs on the same PCB, PowerColor is requiring a minimum of a 1,000 W power supply to operate this card, and it demands four 8-pin PCIe leads to power on. The company said the Devil 13 Dual Core incorporates a 15-phase power delivery system, along with Super Cap and Ferrite Core Choke to handle the power draw.
To complement the purchase of a Devil 13 Dual Core R9 390, PowerColor includes a Razer Ouroboros gaming mouse inside every box. The company has not yet revealed the price of the package, nor availability, but it's not exactly going to be a budget card.
