Devil's club

Species of flowering plant

Devil's club or devil's walking stick (Oplopanax horridus, Araliaceae; syn.Echinopanax horridus, Fatsia horrida[2]) is a large understory shrub native to the arboreal rainforests of the Pacific Northwest, but also disjunct on islands in Lake Superior. It is noted for its large palmate leaves and erect, woody stems covered in noxious and irritating spines. It is also known as Alaskan ginseng and similar names, although it is not a true ginseng.


Leaf of a devil's club, in late summer

Devil's club generally grows to 1 to 1.5 metres (3 ft 3 in to 4 ft 11 in) tall. Some stands located in rainforest gullies or moist, undisturbed areas can reach heights of 3 metres (9.8 ft) to 5 metres (16 ft) or more. The spines are found along the upper and lower surfaces of veins of its leaves as well as the stems. The leaves are spirally arranged on the stems, simple, palmately lobed with 5-13 lobes, 20 to 40 centimetres (7.9 to 15.7 in) across. The flowers are produced in dense umbels 10 to 20 centimetres (3.9 to 7.9 in) diameter, each flower small, with five greenish-white petals. The fruit is a small red drupe 4 to 7 millimetres (0.16 to 0.28 in) diameter.[2]

The plant is covered with brittle yellow spines that break off easily if the plants are handled or disturbed, and the entire plant has been described as having a "primordial" appearance. The plants are slow growing and take many years to reach seed-bearing maturity; this makes them very sensitive to human impact as they do not reproduce quickly.[citation needed]

This species usually grows in moist, dense forest habitats, and is most abundant in old-growth conifer forests in the Pacific Northwest.[2] It is found from southcentral Alaska[3] south to Oregon, and eastward to western Alberta and Montana. Disjunct native populations also occur over 1,500 kilometres (930 mi) away in Lake Superior on Isle Royale and Passage Island, Michigan and Porphyry Island and Slate Island, Ontario.[1]


Devil's club reproduces by forming clonal colonies by means of rhizomes. What can appear to be several different plants may actually have all been one plant originally, with the clones detaching themselves after becoming established by laying down roots.[4]


Large leaves extend from the top of spiny stems.

Traditionally, the charcoal from the stalks is still used to make ceremonial and protective face paints, and among the Ditidaht and neighboring groups, it was equally significant to red ochre as a symbolic link to the spirit world. Native American peoples such as the Tlingit and Haida have used the plant as traditional medicine for ailments such as adult-onset diabetes, as well as rheumatoid arthritis.[5]

The plant has been used ceremonially by the Tlingit, Tsimshian, and Haida people residing in Southeast Alaska and coastal British Columbia. A piece of Devil's club hung over a doorway is said to ward off evil. The plant is harvested and used in a variety of ways, most commonly as an oral tea in traditional settings, but also poultices and ointments.[6] Native Americans also dried and powdered the bark for use as a deodorant[7] and used the mashed berries to clean hair.[8]

Because devil's club is related to American ginseng, some people try to market the plant as an 'adaptogen'. The plant has been harvested for this purpose and sold widely as "Alaskan ginseng". Despite some morphological similarities between the araliaceous members Panax ('true' ginseng), Eleutherococcus senticosus ("Siberian ginseng") and devil's club, the different genera are chemically diverse.[citation needed]


An in vitro study showed that extracts of devil's club might inhibit tuberculosis.[9] Another study suggested devil's club may reduce leukemia burden in mice engrafted with murine C1498 acute myeloid leukemia cells.[10]

PowerColor Red Devil Ultimate Radeon RX 6900 XT: Big Navi Unlocked And Unleashed

red devil 6900 xt hero
PowerColor has historically released its high-end, customized Red Devil-branded Radeons in lock-step with AMD. AMD launches a new GPU with one set of specifications, and a short time later, board partners like PowerColor come through with tweaked versions injected with their own special sauce. On the surface, that’s how today’s launch of the PowerColor Red Devil Ultimate Radeon RX 6900 XTalso went down, but there is some additional mojo at play here.

PowerColor already has a “non-Ultimate” Red Devil 6900 XT in its line-up, but the Red Devil Ultimate Radeon RX 6900 XT takes things to the next level. The silicon on this card has been specially binned to ensure stability at even higher clocks than standard cards, and the power limit has been increased as well. AMD has also tweaked its software to recognize the more capable GPUs, to unlock higher minimum and maximum clock settings in the Tuning section of its drivers.

We’ll explain everything and take the card for a spin shortly. First up, let’s get some particulars out of the way...

Before we dive into the PowerColor Red Devil Ultimate Radeon RX 6900 XT, we should point out that we’re not going to cover the intricacies of its GPU in this piece. We’ve already covered the RDNA 2 architecture and Navi 21 GPU at the heart of this card in the past, specifically in our original Radeon RX 6900 XT reviewand our Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT launch article. In those two articles, we provide additional details regarding the Navi 21 GPU and the RDNA2 architecture, and discuss AMD’s Infinity Cache, the GPU’s new cache hierarchy, the updated Compute Units (CU) and their integrated Ray Accelerators, and Smart Access Memory (SAM), among many other things. If you’d like the additional technical detail, you’ll find it all in our previous coverage.

The PowerColor Red Devil Ultimate Radeon RX 6900 XT has a similar aesthetic to previous-gen Red Devil cards, but everything is amped up here. The PowerColor Red Devil Ultimate Radeon RX 6900 XT is quite large at a little over a foot long, 5” high and three-slots wide, though if you look closely, you’ll see the actual PCB is shorter than the overall length of the card.

The massive cooler is packing a high density heatsink with copper base, that's linked to the fins via seven heat pipes – 3 x 8mm and 4 x 6mm. Various sections of the heatsink make contact with the GPU, memory, and VRM on the card. And sitting atop the assembly are three axial, ball bearing fans, 2 x 100mm outer fans and a center 90mm fan, all wrapped in a rigid metal shroud. We should also note that the fans on the card stop spinning completely when the GPU temperature is below 60°C, so during light use the card is nice and quiet. There’s a metal heat plate on the backside of the card too, but PowerColor notes it doesn’t employ any thermal pads to make contact with the PCB. Instead, the plate is vented to add surface area and allow air to flow around the PCB.

Intermingled through the front and back of the shroud and backplate you’ll find RGB lighting on the PowerColor Red Devil Ultimate Radeon RX 6900 XT, and the card has an RGB header as well should users want to link it up with their motherboard to control / match the lighting.

Underneath the heatsink is a custom PCB with 16 power phases, versus 13 (11+2) on AMD’s reference design. DrMos high-polymer caps are used throughout the design as well. PowerColor notes that the VRM on this card is capable of delivering over 400W of power, and spreading the load across more phases helps keep board temperatures in check as well. Power is delivered to the card though a trio of 8-pin standard PCIe connectors (150w each), which, in addition to the power provided by the PEG slot, will offer more than enough power headroom.
red devil 6900 xt bios switch
The PowerColor Red Devil Ultimate Radeon RX 6900 XT has a BIOS switch built-in, accessible just behind the case bracket. The switch enables two modes: OC and Silent, each with different power targets and clocks. In OC mode, the card is configured for a 303W TDP, with Game and Boost clocks of 2,235MHz and 2,425MHz, respectively. In Silent mode, the TDP is scaled back to 272W with a 2,135MHz Game clock target and 2,335MHz Boost clock. The 16GB of GDDR6memory on the card runs at 16Gbps, similar to AMD’s reference cards.
red devil 6900 xt ports
Ports on the PowerColor Red Devil Ultimate Radeon RX 6900 XT include a single HDMI 2.1 out with Fixed Rate Link (FRL) support and triple full-sized DisplayPorts (1.4). FRL is part of the HDMI 2.1 spec and enables higher uncompressed resolutions above 4K60, in addition to peak bandwidth of up to 48Gbps.
