Radeon HD 3870 and 3850 review roundup

Posted on Thursday, November 15 2007 @ 15:21:18 CET by

The web is flooded with reviews of AMD's new Radeon HD 3800 series. Here's a quick roundup:

  • Overclockersclub
  • NGO HQ
  • HardOCP

  • Chile Hardware (Spanish)

    The outlook in most reviews is quite optimistic and say both cards are quite competitive. The Radeon HD 3850 comes in at a sweet price point and the Radeon HD 3870 seems like a cheaper (but slower) alternative to the GeForce 8800 GT. Here's a snip from HardOCP's conclusion:
    For the first time this year we can recommend AMD ATI graphics cards for gaming. We highly recommend the ATI Radeon HD 3850 for gaming under $200. With the average price of a GeForce 8800 GT currently at $293 and stock hard to find, the Radeon HD 3870 represents a healthy $70 savings while providing the best gaming experience at the $219 price point. Both the HD 3850 and HD 3870 represent the best gaming experience at their suggested retail prices. ATI has assured us that MSRP priced cards will be available and are classifying this as a “hard launch.”
