PowerColor Teases New Devil 13 Graphics Card, Leaked Photos Suggest Radeon R9 295X2

PowerColor's next Devil 13 graphics card may require four 8-pin PCI-E power connectors

You might have expected hell would freeze over before you'd ever see a graphics card with the audacity to demand four -- yes FOUR! -- 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors. You'd also be wrong. Maybe, anyway -- if leaked photos posted to a Chinese language web forum turn out to be legitimate, then PowerColor's upcoming Devil 13 Radeon R9 295X2 dual-GPU graphics card will have a hellish thirst for electricity.

Here's what we know for sure -- PowerColor is conjuring up another Devil 13 graphics card. We know this because the company teased a Devil 13 photograph on its Facebook page with the caption, "Something very special is coming in May... dare to guess?"

Guesses might not be necessary, as a handful of blurry photos (aren't they always?) posted to Chip Hell show what the poster claims is PowerColor's Devil 13 Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card. One of the photos shows a row of 8-pin PCI-E connectors, four in all, waiting to be filled. That's twice as many as found on a reference Radeon R9 295X2.

The rest of the card sports an aggressive design that takes up three slots looks authentic, so we're inclined to believe this is the real deal.
