PowerColor set to let Liquid Devil loose
The company confirms plans for liquid-cooled RDNA3 graphics cards.
PowerColor is set to launch a liquid-cooled RX 7900 cards soon, the Liquid Devil series. The company had already launched several “LD” models with preinstalled waterblock, and each time it was equipped by EK Water Blocks. The new iteration is confirmed to be using EK waterblock as well, and it will feature similar blue LED accents as predecessor.
The Liquid Devil series are usually equipped with the same PCB design as flagship air-cooled Red Devil models. In this case, it means 12+3+2 phase VRM design, three 8-pin power connectors and dual BIOS feature. Furthermore, PowerColor typically chooses the best chips for the Devil series, so higher clocks shouldn’t be a problem.

Thus far only one Radeon RX 7000 features liquid cooler and that’s ASRock Aqua. This model has been listed well over $1400 since launch, so the Liquid Devil does not necessarily have to be much faster. By simply being cheaper it would already be worth a consideration.
PowerColor has not yet confirmed the launch date for the RX 7900 Liquid Devil, but judging from the teaser and earlier announcements, we are probably looking at 1-2 weeks tops. It is also very likely we are going to see both the 7900 XTX and XT models.
