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.</p> <p>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 <a href="https://www.facebook.com/PowerColor.Europe/posts/10152100216771381?stream_ref=10" target="_blank">Facebook page</a> with the caption, "Something very special is coming in May... dare to guess?"</p> <p>Guesses might not be necessary, as a <a href="http://www.chiphell.com/thread-1027201-1-1.html" target="_blank">handful of blurry photos</a> (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.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u69/devil_13_r9_295x2_connectors.jpg" alt="PowerColor Devil 13 Radeon R9 295X2 Connectors" title="PowerColor Devil 13 Radeon R9 295X2 Connectors" width="580" height="393" /></p> <p>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.</p> <p><em>Follow Paul on <a href="https://plus.google.com/+PaulLilly?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/paul_b_lilly" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Paul.B.Lilly" target="_blank">Facebook</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/powercolor_teases_new_devil_13_graphics_card_leaked_photos_suggest_radeon_r9_295x2#comments Build a PC devil 13 gpu graphics card Hardware powercolor r9 295x2 radeon Video Card News Wed, 07 May 2014 17:59:03 +0000 Paul Lilly 27770 at http://www.maximumpc.com Powercolor Introduces Passively Cooled R9 270 Graphics Card with Nary a Peep http://www.maximumpc.com/powercolor_introduces_passively_cooled_r9_270_graphics_card_nary_peep <!--paging_filter--><h3><img src="/files/u69/powercolor_r9_270_scs3.jpg" alt="Powercolor R9 270 SCS3" title="Powercolor R9 270 SCS3" width="228" height="130" style="float: right;" />A potential candidate for a home brewed Steam Machine</h3> <p>It appears <strong>Powercolor is getting ready to launch a passively cooled version of AMD's Radeon R9 270 graphics card</strong>. Powercolor has yet to formally introduce what it's calling the R9 270 SCS3 edition, but if you look around the web, you'll discover some overseas retailers listing the SKU, including one that managed to get its hands on a press photo of the upcoming card.</p> <p>Credit goes to <a href="http://www.fudzilla.com/home/item/33840-powercolor-silently-rolls-out-passive-r9-270" target="_blank"><em>Fudzilla</em></a> for bringing this to our attention. The news and rumor site said it stumbled upon the listing at <a href="http://www.alternate.de/PowerColor/R9_270_SCS3,_Grafikkarte/html/product/1123745/?" target="_blank"><em>Alternate.de</em></a>, where it's being sold for 180 euros (around $243 in U.S. currency). <a href="http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-170-PC" target="_blank">Overclockers.uk</a> also has the silent part listed for sale (bonus points for posting a pic of the card) and describes it as the first fanless R9 series graphics card.</p> <p>The silent card sports what looks like a giant aluminum heatsink with a series of heat pipes running through it. Powercolor has the core clockspeed set at 900MHz, along with 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5,600MHz (effective) on a 256-bit bus. There are two 6-pin power connectors and outputs consisting of DVI (x1), DisplayPort (x1), and HDMI (x1).</p> <p>It remains to be seen when/if this card will make it to the U.S., but assuming it does, it would be a decent candidate for a dual-booting Steam Machine that pulls double duty as a home theater PC.</p> <p><em>Follow Paul on <a href="https://plus.google.com/+PaulLilly?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/paul_b_lilly" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Paul.B.Lilly" target="_blank">Facebook</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/powercolor_introduces_passively_cooled_r9_270_graphics_card_nary_peep#comments 49 270 scs3 amd Build a PC Gaming gpu graphics card Hardware passive cooling powercolor silent Video Card News Tue, 04 Feb 2014 20:12:16 +0000 Paul Lilly 27199 at http://www.maximumpc.com Newegg Daily Deals: G.Skill Sniper Series 16GB DDR3-1866, Intel Core i5 4670, and More! http://www.maximumpc.com/newegg_daily_deals_gskill_sniper_series_16gb_ddr3-1866_intel_core_i5_4670_and_more <!--paging_filter--><p><img src="/files/u69/gskill_sniper.jpg" alt="G.Skill Sniper Series" title="G.Skill Sniper Series" width="300" height="184" style="float: right;" /><img src="/files/u154082/newegg_logo_small.png" alt="newegg logo" title="newegg logo" width="200" height="80" /></p> <p><strong>Top Deal:</strong></p> <p>The DRAM market is a <a href="http://www.maximumpc.com/tight_dram_supply_could_lead_higher_prices_2014">pretty volatile</a> so you might as get while the getting is good.

The <a href="http://www.powercolor.com/us/products_features.asp?id=521" target="_blank">Powercolor LCS R9 290X</a> uses an EK water block, the same as identified in the Facebook photo, and comes factory overclocked to 1060MHz for the core, up 60MHz over AMD's reference blueprint.</p> <p>It also boasts 4GB of GDDR5 memory that's been goosed 100MHz over reference to 1,350MHz on a 512-bit wide bus. Using liquid cooling will certainly help the card run stable with these modest overclocks, though as an extra layer of protection, Powercolor says the part is armed with a "Gold Power Kit" design, meaning it uses a digital PWM, ferrite conducting power (FCP), and multi-phase design to enhance power efficiency.</p> <p>The full-cover water block cools the GPU, memory, and other parts of the card. Its base is made from nickel plated copper allowing for temperatures under 60C, even under full load, <a href="http://www.powercolor.com/us/News.asp?id=1207" target="_blank">Powercolor claims</a>. Liquid rushes through high-flow 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch fittings with captured o-rings to prevent leakage.</p> <p><img src="/files/u69/powercolor_lcs_r9_290x.jpg" alt="Powercolor LCS R9 290X" title="Powercolor LCS R9 290X" width="620" height="282" /></p> <p>No word on how much this card will cost or when it will be available, though with the <a href="http://www.maximumpc.com/amd_radeon_r9_290x_short_supply_bitcoin_mining_blame">Litecoin community stockpiling</a> Radeon R9 Series graphics cards, it might be awhile before you see one of these for the taking.</p> <p><em>Follow Paul on <a href="https://plus.google.com/+PaulLilly?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/paul_b_lilly" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Paul.B.Lilly" target="_blank">Facebook</a></em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> http://www.maximumpc.com/powercolor_launches_first_liquid_cooled_radeon_r9_290x_graphics_card#comments Build a PC graphics card Hardware lcs liquid cooling powercolor radeon R9 290x Video Card News Wed, 18 Dec 2013 15:39:09 +0000 Paul Lilly 26911 at http://www.maximumpc.com PowerColor Shows Off Liquid Cooled Radeon R9 290X Graphics Card http://www.maximumpc.com/powercolor_shows_liquid_cooled_radeon_r9_290x_graphics_card <!--paging_filter--><h3><img src="/files/u69/radeon_r9_290x_liquid_cooled.jpg" alt="PowerColor Radeon R9 290X Liquid Cooled" title="PowerColor Radeon R9 290X Liquid Cooled" width="228" height="174" style="float: right;" />Getting wet and wild with AMD's rare Radeon R9 290X</h3> <p>Riddle us this: What's even harder to find than an AMD Radeon R9 290X graphics card?

PowerColor may be the one to deliver a liquid cooled R9 290X before any other company, as it's already <a href="https://www.facebook.com/PowerColor.Europe/posts/10151845253481381" target="_blank">showing off a custom version</a> on its Facebook page in Europe.</p> <p>Details are scarce, and by that we mean virtually nonexistent.

It has 2GB of GDDR5 memory just like the reference design, though Powercolor goosed the GPU to 1060MHz base and up to 1100MHz boost.</p> <p>The card was built using Powercolor's Gold Power Kit, which includes a Digital PWM, Ferrite Conducting Power (FCP), and a multiphase design. On top of it all is a PCS+ cooling design consisting of dual 90mm fans, three heatpipes, a large section of cooling fins, and a pure copper base. <a href="http://www.powercolor.com/us/News.asp?id=1203" target="_blank">According to Powercolor</a>, its custom cooler delivers 16 percent lower temps than reference and 20 percent better airflow to keep dust bunnies from settling in.</p> <p>An optional accessory for the card is Powercolor's Turbo Timer.

Powercolor didn't go crazy here with a funky cooling solution or other pieces of flair -- the R9 290 OC is essentially an overclocked version of AMD's reference design. It boasts a base frequency of 975MHz, up a bit from 947MHz, and 4GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1250MHz (5000MHz effective) on a 512-bit memory bus.</p> <p>Outside of the clockspeed bump, the Powercolor R9 290 OC delivers the same features as a reference card, including DirectX 11.2 support, 4K video support, and a bunch of connectivity options (two dual-link DVI-D; HDMI; DisplayPort).</p> <p>No word yet on price or availability.</p> <p><em>Follow Paul on <a href="https://plus.google.com/113266473617484509826?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/paul_b_lilly" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Paul.B.Lilly" target="_blank">Facebook</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/powercolor_announces_overclocked_radeon_r9_290_graphics_card#comments Gaming gpu graphics card Hardware powercolor radeon r9 290 Video Card News Tue, 05 Nov 2013 15:35:00 +0000 Paul Lilly 26635 at http://www.maximumpc.com Powercolor Uses Three Fans to Cool Down the Devil R9 270X Graphics Card http://www.maximumpc.com/powercolor_uses_three_fans_cool_down_devil_r9_270x_graphics_card <!--paging_filter--><h3><img src="/files/u69/powercolor_devil_r9_270x_retail.jpg" alt="Powercolor Devil R9 270X Retail" title="Powercolor Devil R9 270X Retail" width="228" height="179" style="float: right;" />The Devil is back and ready to play games</h3> <p>How appropriate for <a href="http://www.maximumpc.com/tags/powercolor"><strong>Powercolor</strong></a> to wait until Halloween to announced its Devil R9 270X graphics card. The latest video card in Powercolor's Devil Series occupies AMD's mid-range tier with 1,280 stream processors, 2.69 TFLOPS of compute performance, Mantle support, and 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1400MHz on a 256-bit bus. It's interesting that Powercolor opted for 2GB instead of 4GB, which is available on some R9 270X graphics card, but on the plus side, 2GB models are less expensive.</p> <p>Powercolor overclocks the engine clock on the <a href="http://www.powercolor.com/global/products_features.asp?id=490" target="_blank">Devil R9 270X</a> to 1,150Mhz, and up to 1,180MHz via boost. The card also features Powercolor's "Platinum Power Kit," which includes high-end components and materials such as DirectFET, digital PWM, and 7+1+1 phase design. These combine to deliver more reliable power and improve stability.</p> <p><img src="/files/u69/powercolor_devil_r9_270x.jpg" alt="Powercolor Devil R9 270X" title="Powercolor Devil R9 270X" width="620" height="324" /></p> <p>Cooling is handled by a trio of fans and four heatpipes, along with a large surface area of aluminum cooling fins. According to Powercolor, the Devil R9 270X runs 25 percent cooler and 18 percent quieter than a reference card.</p> <p>We've reached out to Powercolor for information on when the card will be available and for how much.

Sure, some are flashier than others with colorful and/or specially curved blades, LEDs, and variable speeds, but it's not something most people get excited about. Powercolor may change that by introducing its patented thermal solution called "Double Blades." Using Double Blade technology, <a href="http://www.maximumpc.com/tags/powercolor"><strong>Powercolor</strong></a> promises increased cooling performance and less wear and tear on the fan due to dust.</p> <p>Just as it sounds, Double Blade technology involves adding a second, smaller fan blade to each larger one. The purpose is to centralize airflow and ultimately improve thermal performance.</p> <p>"This exclusive design adds an extra fan blade attached to the original one; the extra fan can absorb airflow into the center and increase airflow up to 20 percent compared to the traditional thermal design," <a href="http://www.powercolor.com/us/News.asp?id=1191" target="_blank">Powercolor says</a>.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u69/traditional_double_blade.jpg" alt="Traditional vs Double Blade" title="Traditional vs Double Blade" width="538" height="274" /></p> <p>In addition, Powercolor says its Double Blade design can prevent dust from depositing at the bearings and settling at the bottom of the fan, prolonging the life of both the fan and the videocard, assuming these end up on GPU coolers.</p> <p><em>Follow Paul on <a href="https://plus.google.com/113266473617484509826?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/paul_b_lilly" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Paul.B.Lilly" target="_blank">Facebook</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/powercolor_reinvents_cooling_fan_using_double_blade_technology2013#comments cooling double blade fan Hardware powercolor News Fri, 13 Sep 2013 13:59:58 +0000 Paul Lilly 26299 at http://www.maximumpc.com Newegg Daily Deals: Toshiba Satellite 15.6-inch Notebook, NZXT Phantom 630 Case, and More! http://www.maximumpc.com/newegg_daily_deals_toshiba_satellite_156-inch_notebook_nzxt_phantom_630_case_and_more <!--paging_filter--><p><img src="/files/u69/toshiba_satellite_0.jpg" alt="Toshiba Satellite" title="Toshiba Satellite" width="300" height="241" style="float: right;" /><img src="/files/u154082/newegg_logo_small.png" alt="newegg logo" title="newegg logo" width="200" height="80" /></p> <p><strong>Top Deal:</strong></p> <p>School is almost is session and you need a new notebook for home and research reports.
