After Asus and MSI have already announced the first custom designs based on the Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT from the new Radeon RX 6000 series, PowerColor players are in the mood for the Red Devil and announce something big. He has proven several times that the manufacturer can certainly design opulent models.
With the Radeon RX 6800, RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT graphics cards based on the revised RDNA-2 architecture, AMD says it competes with the GeForce RTX 3090 (test), GeForce RTX 3080 (test) and GeForce RTX 3070 (test) from Nvidia and offers 16 GB of GDDR6 memory in addition to the Navi-21-GPU (“Big Navi”).
Asus and MSI step ahead and PowerColor step up
After Asus had already presented the Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT as custom designs for the Strix and TUF series, the cooling solution of the latter was already available in the form of the GeForce RTX 3080 TUF Gaming OC (test) and RTX 3070 TUF Gaming OC (test ) convince, and MSI has announced the Radeon RX 6800 XT Gaming X Trio, PowerColor also puts gamers in the mood for a “Big Navi” in the form of a Red Devil.
Red Devil guarantees high quality
The Red Devil series usually represents the air-cooled spearhead of the exclusive partner of AMD and has already been able to convince many times in the past, also on a computer base.
Even the PowerColor Radeon RX 480 Red Devil (test) was civilized and quiet, with the Radeon RX Vega 64 Red Devil (test) PowerColor silenced the energy-hungry Vega, the PowerColor RX Vega 56 Red Devil (test) could easily handle the reference Sapphire Nitro + keep up and with the Radeon RX 5700 Red Devil (test), PowerColor Navi 10 fell silent.
So these are good prerequisites for a new edition based on “Big Navi”, which the manufacturer announced today with a short video in which some sketches of the graphics card are drawn.
However, the manufacturer has not yet given any further details apart from the short videos. However, a Red Devil will presumably be among the highest clocked custom designs of all manufacturers.
Something big is coming…are you ready?
