...this 1,600g behemoth offers better cooling, acoustics and framerate than base solutions.
PC gaming enthusiasts have been eagerly anticipating Radeon RX 6000 Series GPUs. Reference boards painted an impressive picture in rasterisation tests and duly delivered AMD back into the high-end firmament.
Partner cards have followed a week later. Their job has been made more difficult by AMD stepping up the quality for its MBA boards, so it's to this backdrop that PowerColor brings the premium Red Devil to your attention.
Massive in form and taking up three slots, this 1,600g behemoth offers better cooling, acoustics and framerate than base solutions, but it's not all good news. The RGB implementation ought to be better, coil whine is evident on our sample of one, and we believe that memory needs to be overclocked on a premium design such as this.
In common with everyone else, the stock situation is sketchy, at best, so it's unlikely you'll be able to purchase a model today. If you can, however, know that the PowerColor Radeon RX 6800 XT Red Devil Limited Edition is a solid alternative to the MBA board.
Very good performance
Standard power cables
Quiet and relatively cool
RGB implementation not great
Memory not overclocked
