Producing graphics cards since 1997, PowerColor has always been actively involved in bringing two ingredients to the table innovation and creativity. The DEVIL series in particular has been representative of the very best the company offers, fusing together both performance and efficiency.
Today we have in our hands the devilish delights of the all-new Red Devil Golden Sample RX 580. The Golden Sample goes beyond what the standard Red Devil is capable of, by offering an improved cooler and higher clock speeds. Unlike previous generations of the Devil series, this RX 580 variant opts for a double-fan configuration rather than the usual triple-fan but instead we get two, larger 100mm dual ball bearing fans which promise to deliver on performance and low-noise.
