Radeon RX 480 Devil; 1400 MHz OC, 8-Pin Power and Triple Fan
We heard rumors from PowerColor about their upcoming Devil card. Though we were not sure at that point whether or not the GPU in question would be an RX 480 or not. We did have a gut feeling that it would be and yes it is. A leak showed up on the internet concerning the Radeon RX 480 Devil by PowerColor. The leaks claim that the Radeon RX 480 Devil can achieve an overclock of 1400 MHz which is much more than what you get with the reference design.
The Radeon RX 480 Devil also has an 8 pin power connector instead of the 6 pin on the reference model. This could be one for the reasons why it has better overclocking. This also means that it will draw more power and will not run as economically as the reference design RX 480. The Radeon RX 480 Devil also has a triple fan design to keep it cool under load and constant gaming sessions.
This will be Powercolor’s fastest Polaris based graphics card. Features of the card are as follows:
- GDDR5 memory at 8 GB/s (2.0 GHz clock),
- Cumulative bandwidth of 256 GB/s
- 256-bit interface.
- Three DP 1.3,
- Single HDMI 2.0b port and
- Single DVI port.
It is most likely that we Radeon RX 480 Devil in an 8 GB version as that seems to be the most logical thing for PowerColor to do. An 8 GB version would provide more power. Seeing how PowerColor is aiming for this card to run 4K as well as 5K 8 GB would be the way to go as more games require more VRAM at such high resolution.
We have no news on release or about the pricing of this GPU but looking at how vendors are coming up with their variants of the Radeon RX 480 this will be coming out shortly. It is great to see vendors making the already great Radeon RX 480 even better.
