We managed to get our hands on more details regarding Powercolor's upcoming Devil 13 HD 6970 card. Touted as a card that will feature top notch components, custom PCB and custom dual slot cooler, we now managed to get some more details regarding those features.

As noted earlier, the card has a 12-phase design packed on a black custom PCB. The feature list start with dual BIOS button located on the I/O part of the card as well as voltage measurement points. The PCB will include UltraHigh Current power bead-UHB that have reduced energy loss, twice longer lifespan and 15% lower temperature as well as Proadlizer chip and DirectFET that should all make this card a potential overclocking beast. Another neat feature is the LED lightning signal that shows the working status of the GPU.

Spec wise, the new Devil 13 HD 6970 card still has 1536 stream processors and works at 960MHz for the GPU and 5700MHz for 2GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. These are the performance clocks and will be flashed into second BIOS while the normal one takes the card down to 880MHz for GPU and 5500MHz for memory.

The card is still expected to have that large dual-slot cooler with 92mm fans and four 8mm copper heatpipes. Of course, all these top-notch components and features come with a premium price tag, so the new Devil 13 HD 6970 is currently listed in Europe at €428.
