PowerColor Devil 13 R9 295X2 - Triple Slot Air-Cooled Monster

PowerColor Devil 13 R9 295X2 - Triple Slot Air-Cooled Monster

The first non-reference R9 295X2 has been leaked. The PowerColor Devil 13 looks like it is going to feature a fully custom PCB with an INSANE cooler design. It is going to offer the same Hawaii XT cores with the GCN 1.1 architecture on the same board. Also, judging by the PCB, it seems that it is also going to use the same amount of memory (4GBx2 = 8GB).

Featuring an insane triple-slot cooler, the new Devil 13 from PowerColor is both longer and wider than the reference R9 295X2. This likely means that the card will be heavier as well.

Yes, you're not hallucinating. Those are four 8-pin power connectors on a single graphics card. It is rumored that only three are needed and the fourth is for extreme overclocking and benchmarking. This makes sense considering how much power the reference card drew from two connectors.

What are your thoughts on the PowerColor Devil 13 R9 295X2? Do you think they went overkill on the design? Let us know in the comments below!
