PowerColor will soon be launching their Radeon R9 295X2 Devil13 graphics card, which of course will be the successor to the previous Devil 13 card that featured dual Tahiti cores. The card will most likely be the first custom-cooled R9 295X2 card as all of the ones that we have seen so far have used the reference cooling design.
Looking at the photo above you can see that the card will require four 8pin PCI-Express power connectors! That is sure a lot of power! That really gives you an idea of the PCB design of the card and how power hungry it is. To give you an idea the reference R9 295X2 has dual 8pin connectors and a TDP of 500W. So we are guessing this card will have a TDP of 675W or higher!
The card will feature a massive triple slot cooler, which is actually longer in length and wider when compared to the stock Radeon R9 295X2. The fans on the cooler are 100mm and are PWM fans. The rest of the cooler is made of a very large aluminum fin array that features multiple heatpipes. There is also a backplate on the card and the shroud is black with read accents.
We would expect the card to have a factory overclock, but that has not been confirmed just yet. Given the beefy PCB design and custom cooler expect this card to have a premium over the reference R9 295X2 card.
