Tweaktown published a photo of Gigabyte's upcoming Radeon HD 3850 card.

Just like the firm's in-house 8800 GT this card uses a relatively small cooling solution from Zalman.
The card uses a Zalman cooler and as with the 8800 GT, Gigabyte is using their own blue PCB and the power regulation has been upgraded from a two-phase to a three-phase design. The card is quite long, especially compared to the 8800 GT, but the PCB was quite bare. The memory chips apparently don’t require any additional cooling, nor should the power regulation.
