Chief among those, of course, is the card’s unique and pre-installed water block, which EK says allows it to reach peak performance under superior thermals, ensuring the longevity of the product. The PowerColor Liquid Devil Radeon RX 7900 XTX with factory-mounted water block is available for order through PowerColor’s partner reseller network and the EK Webshop, where it’s currently in stock and available to order for $1,499 at the time of this posting.

From an EK press release:

This prestigious Liquid Devil series GPU uses only pre-binned graphics card chips with the highest quality silicon to achieve the best graphics core frequencies. These chips are installed on a brand new 14-layer PCB, equipped with a 17-phase VRM power delivery system consisting of DrMOS and high polymer capacitors. The VRAM on this graphics card has its own 4 phases in the VRM for clean power delivery. New IMON technology monitors and reports each phase’s electric current and power consumption. By balancing the workload, the Liquid Devil ensures unparallel stability and thermal protection while pursuing its overclocking potential.

On the thermal front, to ensure these lightning-fast graphics processors hit their maximum clocks, a unique EK water block is pre-installed, prolonging the card’s lifespan with superior thermals that only liquid cooling can provide. This also ensures no precious gaming time is spent on the water block mounting, and there are no questions regarding the warranty.

An easily accessible switch allows users to quickly choose between two onboard BIOSes and opt for either the OC mode, which provides high performance with balanced power usage, or the Unleash mode, which is designed for breaking records.

The base of the block is made of nickel-plated electrolytic copper, while its top is made of glass-like Acrylic and durable black POM acetal. High-quality EPDM O-Rings ensure sealing.

The visual appearance of the graphics card undeniably backs up the Devil gaming pedigree.

The distinctive and unique water block cover is partly accented with an acrylic design, enhanced by the subtle back glow that adds a mystic ambiance to match any desired gaming mood. The lighting is fully addressable, allowing various effects through PowerColor’s DevilZone FAN RGB control utility.

This gaming graphics card is also delivered with an EK-Loop Leak Tester Flex.

It provides a fast and safe way to test for possible leaks in your liquid cooling loop. While traditional leak testing works, it requires hours before very small leaks can be detected, and then things can become messy. EK-Loop Leak Tester Flex does the job within minutes without risking any actual leakage.

Liquid cooling brings lower temperatures, ensuring the card’s native GPU Boost overclocks it to levels that are out of reach for traditional air cooling. All that with a prolonged lifespan and significantly less noise pollution when connected to the existing or new custom loop system.

Take full advantage of the RDNA architecture that is powering this AMD gaming GPU. Equipped with GDDR6 memory and featuring PCI Express 4.0 support, RDNA architecture is ready for the latest generation of games.
