The packaging for the Devil13 is incredible. Spending the best part of a grand on a GPU you want the opening to be an event, as much as the card inside to be outstanding. PowerColor have definitely given us plenty of opportunity to pore over every detail and savour each new opening.

There is so much to take in. The card comes with a set of high quality screwdrivers and a jack to help keep the card stable and reduce pressure upon the PCI Express slot.

As well as those we have DVI dongle, mini-DP to DP adaptor as well as an Active DisplayPort adaptor, power cables and a Crossfire bridge for the truly hopeful. The Devil13 itself is packed in so much foam that it will certainly arrive in mint condition, even if it was delivered by a trainee parachutist who'd forgotten their parachute.

It's a monster. Three fans, triple slot heatsink and a seriously hefty backplate are just for starters.

Nice card I guess but I have to admit these custom designed cards turn me off due to the difficulty in getting a water block for them. It feels like a card with a very limited market because the people who have the money and will to purchase such an obviously high end card are going to be the same people who water cool which would obviously limit its success in the market.

I wonder if they are partnering with EK or Swiftech to get a block for this thing? I don't know too much about it admittedly.Quote

good for power color! innovative and thinking outside the box. if the namesake
will not build a card, then so be it, they will. i was really meah.. until the afterburner
overclock and now thats what i think it should have come out of the box. not that
one couldn't do the same, but if left to the suppliers tool for performance, the
buyer would have been a lil sore. leaving a 20% performance gain on the table
at high end cost makes it better, but that should have already been binned for
customer appreciation.
really cool stuff from power color.. keep it up, 'cuz it looks like they are on their own
