    I don't know, but somehow I get the feeling we'll be seeing a lot of AMD products being mentioned this week. Photos of the Red Devil Golden Sample from PowerColor have surfaced, that would be the R...

    I'm not religious or politically correct and even I think this satanic styling is beyond stupid. I guess PowerColor doesn't care if they lose a big chunk of potential customers. Just because we gamers play stuff like Quake or Doom and think it's badass, doesn't mean we want satanic styling on our computer hardware or on home walls. That's just creepy.

    Yeah but Santa, Satan, Diablo, angels and demons - made up, aka not real, all of them.

    Yet you are nearly whining. 99% of the gpus out there are the same basic boring theme. This 'we" you speak of is coming from 1 person with a pathetic assumption about what 'we' would want.

    This is f**king awesome. PERIOD.

    Don't like it, cool. But if you are not religious then it has no "satanic" meaning to you. And anything satanic is twisted by religious extremist anyways.

    They get major props from me for doing something like this.
    Wish there was a R9 Fury like the RX 480 Devil triple fan when I got my fury.

    Well if the GPU runs helluva hot they always call it a feature. :D

    If this truely is basically a RX 480 OC'd a little, essentially, then why does it need to much power? 6+8 pin?

    GTX 1060 generally gets better to similar performance of the RX 480, but only needs 1 6 pin, so...?

    I'm curious why this is being called "Golden Sample"? I didn't see anywhere on the card or the box that said "Golden Sample". "Golden Sample" is a Gainward name.

    Something has been nagging me for a while since this was leaked.

    The Powercolor red devil are 3 fans with the funky dual blades..why would they suddenly make the red devil 8 gb with only 2 fans and a tiny heatsink like the red dragons?

    Just asking.

    Further the Pentagram/ Star of David/ or whatever you want to call it was quickly pulled from the RX 480 as it had it as well. Why would they suddenly add it back when they pulled it on the RX 480 due to perception?

    /edit granted the actual RX 480 8 GB red devil I had...was big but only due to the extra empty space from the the fan and heat sink...once removed it is normal size.

    Thanks! I missed that!

    I still don't know why they decided to use a name that Gainward has been using for close to 20 years now.
