Power Color Devil 13 R9 390 X2 Dual GPU Announced Specification 16gb GDDR5 and 5120 stream processors
This is insane..
Price is actually not awful for a card that will significantly out-perform any high-end single GPU. Crossfire support is always an issue though, and I'd wait on reviews to confirm this is cooled adequately.
It'll pump out heat for sure. The question that matters is whether it'll do that well enough to avoid throttling. It's touch and go on a reference 295x-2, so it'll be interesting to see. The 8GB RAM is about right for making this a 4k monster, the 4GB of a 295x and Fury is a bit... Hard to be confident it'll stay viable at that res.
Recommended 1275 watts.. Goodness gracious.
yeah thats 10 amps! lol
I noticed a little error. "Each core has a 8GB of GDDR5 memory which accounts to a total of 16 Gb GDDR5) I think they meant each "gpu" has 8GB of GDDR5 memory. On a funny note: Could you imagine if it actually did have 8GB for each core? lol 5120*8= 40,960GB of GDDR5 LOL
That is just some raw power numbers. Holy crap!
Everytime you start gaming the lights will start flickering.
Oh yes! I'm excited already!
That thing is a monster. Even my 1000watt PSU is out of the running for this. I love seeing these extreme GPUs
Your 1000W PSU would be fine, that requirement is greatly exaggerated. I've run 3 R9-290 series cards on a 1000W PSU without a hint of a problem, and the 390 series are slightly more efficient.
Yeah but it's x2 plus I have a greedy 5820k @ 4.5 GHz I'd probably be ok, but not much change
It is quite literally just 2 R9-390s, give-or-take a few watts for the different cooling solution. My 3 290 series cards was actually a 295x-2 + a 290 pro, and never got close to the 1000W PSU I had in play. It's unimportant as I doubt either of us are seriously considering buying this card, but just saying the power requiremant listed is excessive :) If anyone is seriously weighing it up, I'd suggest checking the reviews or if you're really desperate, check the reviews of the previous powercolor devil 12 that strapped a couple of 290s together. Power draw will be within a fine margin of that.
I wonder what costs more? The card itself or the cost of running it to complete The Witcher 3? :D
