ASUS Extreme AH3850 X2 1GB Review

Posted on Monday, May 19 2008 @ 16:45:02 CEST by

Earlier this year ATI released the Radeon HD 3870 X2, which was their first real dual-GPU graphics card aimed at gamers. Today we have a less official dual-GPU graphics card that has been developed by ASUS, featuring two Radeon HD 3850 GPU’s. This new product will go head to head with the GeForce 9800 GTX, giving ATI a showing in the mid-range performance segment...

Honestly I am simply amazed by the level of performance that the ASUS Radeon HD 3850 X2 delivers, although it was to be expected given we already know how fast Crossfire Radeon HD 3850 graphics cards are. Still, at roughly $340 US the Radeon HD 3850 X2 stacks up against the GeForce 9800 GTX very well, as we found it to be considerably faster in a number of games. It is cheaper to just buy two Radeon HD 3850 graphics cards and place them in Crossfire mode. However unless you have a dual PCI Express 16x motherboard, this configuration will be slower than the ASUS Radeon HD 3850 X2.
