The Club3D HD3850 includes two CD-ROMs with software/drivers, printed manuals and of course the various connectors: D-Sub15 and DVI-HDMI. Of course, a Crossfire adapter is needed if you want to add a second HD3850 card.

The Club3D HD3850 is a single slot card of relatively small dimensions. The graphics card is 23cm in length so it might still pose problems in crammed cases.

There are two Crossfire connectors in order to accommodate a Quad Crossfire setup.

You need a 6-pin power supply feed to power this graphics card.

After installing the graphics card, we can get more details about its main features and specifications. The GPU core runs at 669MHz, while the memory at 829MHz.
