Sapphire Adds muscle to Midrange With 1GB HD 3850


Sapphire has just launched a new version of its HD 3850 with enhanced memory configuration of 1GB.

The new Sapphire HD 3850 has 1GB of GDDR3 memory, running at 829MHz (1.66GHz effective). It has a core clock speed of 703MHz.

The HD 3850 series 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 loading to a minimum. The HDMI adaptor delivers audio and video output on a single cable for direct connection of an HDMI ready display.

Featuring the latest CrossFireX technology, the SAPPHIRE HD 3850 has two high speed connectors on each card allowing 2, 3 or even 4 graphics cards to be daisy-chained together for enhanced performance when installed in a CrossFireX mainboard. 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 company?s other high end models together with multiple rendering units and a programmable tessellation unit to deliver higher graphics performance. 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.

General Specifications

External Memory Interface: 256-bit
Memory Type: 829 MHz GDDR3
Frame Buffer: 1024 MB
Cooler: Single slot fan assisted cooler
Power Connector: 6-pin PCIe
Peak Board Power: ~95W
Display Interfaces: 2x Dual-link DVI with HDCP + HDTV Out (HDMI+Audio with adapter)
ATI CrossFireX: Dual interconnects (2, 3, or 4 way ready)
