PowerColor's Custom AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 'Red Devil' Leaks

If you are after fancy looking graphics card with brawn underneath its good looks, you are in luck, and it doesn't even matter if you prefer AMD for NVIDIA. For those who favor the latter, we just posted a review of NVIDIA's Star Wars Titan Xp Collector's Edition, and take it from us, the GeForce is strong with that one. Likewise, if you prefer to roll with AMD, custom Radeon RX Vega cards are starting to trickle out. One that lies in the wings is PowerColor's Radeon RX Vega 64 Red Devil card.

Photos of the Red Devil variant have been leaked to the web, giving us a glimpse of the card's custom cooler and the hardware that sits underneath it. Immediately visible from the first photo is the Red Devil logo on top of the heatsink, glowing red of course. We can also see three cooling fans on the side, which provide airflow to the finned aluminum block that extends the length of the card.

Also visible on the top section of the card are two DIP switches. One of those controls the LED lighting for the Red Devil logo, and the other one toggles between three—yes, THREE!—BIOSes. Most users do not need multiple BIOSes, but for overclockers who like to flash custom firmware, they can come in handy.

Stripped of its heatsink, the Red Devil looks similar to AMD's reference design, though it is a little be wider for the benefit of an enlarged cooling solution. Otherwise, it has the same number of V-core phases.

As for connectivity, PowerColor switched things up a bit with two DisplayPort and two HDMI outputs. Reference cards have three DisplayPort connectors and one HDMI port.

There is no mention of clockspeeds on this card, but it is a safe bet that it will come factory overclocked, presumably with additional headroom to spare. PowerColor is planning to officially launch this card later this month, with availability expected in December. The company will also release a custom Radeon RX Vega 56 card, though we do not have any details on that one.
