PowerColor RX 480 Red Devil Review

Despite the Red Devil naming the PowerColor RX 480 is a fairly normal triple-fan cooling solution. Maybe an all red card would look horrible, and PowerColor aren't the first company whose product doesn't live up to the name, but we'd have liked to see a couple of horns poking out of the side of the shroud, or something a little more devilish. The market is full of normal looking cards, why not take the risk?
We're not going to comment upon the choice of design on the back of the Red Devil. We understand it isn't what it appears to be, but it feels a needless risk in our opinion. With triple fans on the front the cooler should be more than capable of dispersing all the heat that the Polaris GPU can generate.
Not a millimetre wider than a twin slot GPU, the Red Devil is perfect for the exceptional performance from a CrossfireX RX 480 setup. 8 pin PCIe power input will keep the card fed with all the amps it requires.
Even side on the Red Devil is an attractive card. We like the subtle logo, although it's red enough that you probably can't fit it into a blue schemed motherboard.
