Sapphire Launches HD 3850 ULTIMATE Edition


Sapphire Technolog has just launched a new ULTIMATE Edition in its HD 3000 series, "the fastest passive cooled graphics card in the world."

The SAPPHIRE HD 3850 ULTIMATE Edition has 256MB of GDDR3 memory, running at 828MHz (1.66GHz effective) and has a core clock speed of 668MHz and features a totally fanless and silent heatpipe cooler. It incorporates the latest ATI Avivo HD Technology for enhanced Video display and features a built in UVD (Unified Video decoder) for the hardware accelerated decoding of Blu-ray and HD DVD content for both VC-1 and H.264 codecs, reducing CPU loadingm. The HDMI adaptor delivers true audio and video output on a single cable for direct connection of an HDMI ready display.

Like other models in the series, the SAPPHIRE HD 3850 ULTIMATE Edition features the new CrossFireX technology, with two high speed connectors on each card allowing 2, 3 or even 4 graphics cards to be chained together. As each card has two dual-link DVI connectors, this allows up to eight monitors to be used at the same time, or - with CrossFire enabled - two GPU?s (and up to four with future driver releases) to provide a more powerful rendering solution.

All the new SAPPHIRE HD 3800 series combine a unified shader architecture with support for Shader Model 4.0 and the forthcoming DirectX 10.1 connected via the latest PCI-Express Gen 2.0 interface. The architecture shares the 320 stream processors and 512-bit internal ring bus memory controller of the previous high end SAPPHIRE HD 2900 models together with multiple rendering units and a programmable tessellation unit. Now manufactured in a new 55nm process technology, the GPU in the HD 3000 series delivers this performance with lower power consumption and at lower cost than previous generations.
