A Closer Look at the PowerColor Red Devil RX 570

The Red Devil RX 570 advertises itself as a card ready for Premium VR and gaming.  Also, Vulkan and DX12 support, Chill, ReLive Capture and FreeSync 2 are advertised on the front of the box.

The back of the box gives the power and system requirements which include the need for a minimum 450W power supply unit (PSU).  AMD’s technology features are highlighted and the box also emphasizes the dual-blade fan technology which goes completely silent when the GPU temperatures drop below 60C.  Overclocking is featured with a dual-BIOS – one for maximum overclocks, and the other for a quieter operation.

Opening the box, we see a quick installation guide, a driver CD and an invitation to join PowerColor’s Devil’s Club.
