The PowerColor Red Devil RX 480 is designed from the ground up to feel menacing. It certainly accomplishes that goal.

A red anodized “Red Devil” badge with silver highlights adorns the side of the cooler..
A new backplate design is unique to the Red Devil RX 480.
There is at least one of each of the most common monitor connections, so there are plenty of connections options.
With a 150 watt TDP, the Radeon RX 480 only needs power from one 6 pin connector. PowerColor has chosen to go with an 8 pin design instead.
PowerColor includes a few accessories with the card. There is a quick guide and a driver disk. There is also a Devil Club invitation card. We will get to that on the next page.
