The new Devil 13 R9 390 requires an insane 4 x 8-pin PCIe power connectors so that it can draw between 1000W and 1275W of power. But all of that power won't be wasted, as it packs dual Grenada PRO GPUs, each with 2560 stream processors, 160 TMUs, 64 ROPs and 8GB of GDDR5. Each GPU has 345GB/sec available memory bandwidth, so the card has 691GB/sec memory bandwidth in total.
