AMD is working on another Radeon HD 3000 series graphics card. DigiTimes writes we can expect the release of the Radeon HD 3830 in April or May.
This card will be priced at $129 and will feature 320 stream processors, 16 texture filtering units, 16 ROPs, a 128-bit memory interface and up to 256MB memory.
The card will be positioned between AMD's Radeon HD 3850 and 3650 and will target the gap between Nvidia's GeForce 9600GT and 8600GTS with a price lower than US$129.
Several graphics card makers already plan to launch overclocked versions of the card, boosting the core frequency to even higher levels, while using faster memory chips, noted the sources.
AMD also notified its partners that if Radeon HD 3830 does not perform as it expected, the company might cut the price of its Radeon HD 3870, 3850 and 3830 some time in the second quarter in order to grab more market share, added the sources.
