PowerColor announced a beast of a graphics card with the Devil 13 HD7990, which features dual TAHITI XT GPUs in a single solution.

The Devil 13 HD7990 features a core speed of 925MHz (1000MHz in overclocked mode) with a memory clock of 1375MHz (5.5Gbps) and 6GB GDDR5 memory. There’s also a dual BIOS switch for convenience.

The graphics card supports DX11.1 and PCI-E 3.0 and boasts DL DVI-I, SL DVI-D, HDMI, and two mini DisplayPorts. PowerColor does buyers a solid by including a Wiha Tool Kit that includes reversible blades, as well as a PowerColor PowerJack to support the card’s substantial weight from the back to avoid any bending-related damage.

Cooling the Devil 13 HD7990 is no small task, but PowerColor’s solution is to use a combination of high-efficiency thermal treatments, three fans, heat pipes, and a digital 12+2+2 phase PWM for extra stability.

There’s no word on price, which is just as well because you know all that graphics firepower won’t come cheap.

One of the few gpus that functions both as a graphics card and a weapon.

Only complaint is that it doesn't come in blue.

It is really nice looking, and PowerColor always builds quality.

I have a PowerColor 7870 Vortex II sitting here and it's only dual slot yet has a rock solid metal backplate to prevent droop.

So big and so sexy..

@Nicoletoledo, yeah. The price is gonna be scary. Looking at cards in the past, its about $110-$125 per GB of Virt. Ram since it's the most valuable part of a cards performance.

This is a tribute to excess.

It will be an expensive buy too.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Amazing looking and I'm sure performing card. Pretty sweet for the person who has the cash and needs to have an extremely powerful card.

Been waiting to see the Hd 7990's as I am currently considering a gtx 690 or hd 7990. Too bad it's triple slot because I don't really care to take up 3 slots with one card. Hopefully the other manufacturers will spill the beans on their dual slot models soon.
