PowerColor expected to unveil its crazy new GPU at Computex next week

PowerColor to unveil its Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X GPU at Computex, the crazy GPU that requires four 8-pin PCI-e power connectors

We teased the PowerColor Radeon R9 295X2 Devil 13 GPU a few weeks ago, which requires an insane four 8-pin PCIe power connectors. At the time, we thought it would be the Radeon R9 295X2, but it looks like it will arrive with two Radeon R9 290X GPUs instead.


The PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X will feature two Hawaii XT cores, both clocked at 1GHz. There will be a huge 8GB of RAM on-board, which should be 4GB per GPU, over an 512-bit bus. We should expect power consumption to be higher than 600W for the GPU, which isn't too crazy considering a single Radeon R9 290X can push 300W or more.


PowerColor are gracing the Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X with its custom cooling solution, which is a triple-fan solution on a triple-slot GPU. We should expect PowerColor to fully unveil the Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X at Computex next week, where we will be on-hand for some pictures and drool.
