This combination enables greater performance and power stability compared to the 13/12 phase found on the AMD reference card. With two 8-pin PCIe® connectors for maximum reliability and the highest performance, the PowerColor Red Devil is able to deliver up to 480W of power.

Red Devil Limited Edition


To celebrate the redesign of the Red Devil cards, PowerColor teamed up with a ZOMOPLUS world-famous keyboard cap artist to develop and bundle Red Devil keyboard caps with Limited-Edition packaging.

Dual BIOS and Mute Fan Technology
Game hard or whisper-quiet stealth mode, you pick! The Red Devil and Red Dragon graphics cards come with Dual BIOS, providing the best performance and the most optimal cooling profile to match any gaming style. In addition, when the temperature of the graphics cards fall under 60 degrees Celsius, the fans will be off with Mute Fan technology.

Red Dragon Shows It’s Claws as Well
