Powercolor RX Vega 64 Devil Preview

Today our first custom Radeon RX Vega 64 GPU has entered the OC3D offices, coming directly from PowerColor in a pristine box. This is PowerColor's RX Vega 64 Red Devil, which releases with a custom PCB, cooler, and display output configuration, all of which aims to deliver users with the optimal RX Vega gaming experience.
The Red Devil will ship with a large factory overclock and three BIOS switches, each of which offers the same base/boost clocks but offers a different thermal profile and power limits. Right now we do not know how much these modes affect the card's performance.
We will be testing this GPU soon but for now, we will be giving you guys our first impressions of this new graphics card.
When compared to AMD's standard RX Vega 64 GPU we can see that the PowerColor Devil offers a significant factory overclock, increasing the base clock speed of this GPU by 170MHz and the boost clock speed of this GPU by 61MHz. We will need to properly test this GPU to see exactly how high the clock speeds of this GPU are during a standard gaming session, though they should be much higher than AMD's reference model.
PowerColor says that this GPU comes with a twelve-phase power design.
