It is impressive to see what PowerColor has brought to the table. This Devil 13 edition is without doubt the fastest graphics card ever tested in the labs.
PowerColor will get nothing other than praises and thumbs up from me for making a design choice that steps outside of the ordinary.
Fact remains, PowerColor released the fastest graphics card in the world and whilst being faster overall, it is two times cheaper than the GeForce GTX Titan Z. That fact alone is very impressive.

Visually, the card is stunning and will fit right in with any of the red and black themed builds that are popular right now as gaming centric builds.
The double-blade fans do help with air pressure and volume, but the noise level from a trio of fans is never going to be as quiet as a single or pair of fans.
At $1500, the Devil 13 is not an inexpensive card, but PowerColor did decide to throw in a pretty interesting bundle of accessories to add value to the package.

PowerColor's Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X holds the performance promise that its two-chip composition intimates, and a healthy memory overclock further strengthens its appeal.
You can't help but admire the extravagance, and we're impressed that PowerColor faced-up to the engineering challenges imposed by running two R9 290X GPUs on a single, air-cooled PCB.

First of all, purely on a framerate point of view the Devil 13 does well. It exceeds the performance of the cheaper GTX 780 Ti most of the time and of course is faster than a single 290X. In games (or 3DMark) which are well optimised for dual GPUs it also compares well with 290X CrossFire and isn’t too far behind the similarly priced GTX 780 Ti SLI. Added to that the card is often a touch faster than the 295 X2 from AMD and runs 4K gaming without issue.

Performance will be front and center with a card like this and make no mistake about it, PowerColor has delivered in spades. From 1600P to 4K resolutions, the Devil 13 is able to go toe to toe against some of the best, most expensive dual card solutions around. With all of that being said, the Devil 13 can be considered a novelty rather than an effort that will draw in many gamers. It is a rare specimen which has an outstanding design and it claimed the mantle as today’s most powerful graphics card. Bragging rights never looked so good.
