    After taking the market by storm with the launch of the HD2900XT in mid-May, GECUBE launched today this year’s heavyweight graphics card – the HD3800 Series. The product that reviewers and gamers have all been waiting for is now finally here. Equipped with the latest RV670 (55nm) graphics chip from AMD, the HD3800 series marks the first time that the PCI-Express 2.0 interface has been used on a graphics card and incorporates the latest ATI CrossFireX technology. With support for DirectX 10.1, it delivers next-generation 3D graphics performance for ultimate realism. You can now enjoy both high resolution and superior image processing technology at the same time!

    Leading the charge from ATI’s new HD3800 series of graphics cards is the GECUBE HD3870 equipped with the ATI Radeon RV670XT graphics processor, the first graphics chip to be built on a 55nm process and is available with 512MB of GDDR4 memory and 256-bit memory bandwidth. The additional features include built-in HDMI and 5.1 channel surround sound support, full HDCP, HD-DVD and Blu-Ray support over double Dual-Link DVI, all-new Unified Video Decoder (UVD) processing system as well as the latest HD Video and image processing technologies. Together they deliver a breathtakingly realistic high definition 1080p experience. Meanwhile, the GECUBE HD3850, which is equipped with the ATI Radeon RV670PRO graphics processor and 256MB of GDDR3 memory, is also fully compatible with the equivalent technology supports and efficiency applications. It allows gamers to experience the same level superior graphics performance with economical price. GECUBE HD3800 full series also support ATI’s next-generation CrossFIreX technology that allows up to four graphics card to be run in parallel. The result is 3D graphics performance that surpasses everything else to date and takes gaming to a whole new level.

    GECUBE has now taken the design of its popular X-Turbo II a step further to come up with the new X-Turbo III silent fan. The superb low-noise turbine design and dual heatpipes ensure perfect heat dissipation and superb performance. Thanks to this industry-leading design from GECUBE, users can enjoy high performance and quality without worrying about heat or noise. Backed by the X-Turbo III silent fan, the HD3870 can easily overclocked up to a core frequency of 857 MHz and a memory frequency of 1.25*2 GHZ; and HD3850 also can have a core frequency of 720 MHz and a memory frequency of 950*2 MHZ. With improved support for new application technologies, 320 Unified Stream Processors, physics processing support and the ATI PowerPlay technology that is being used for the first time, the HD3800 full series can deliver faster and better performance for the same power consumption. All of these outstanding accomplishments mean that the GECUBE HD3800 full series will simply blow you away with its spectacular performance during games and movies, and is definitely the heavyweight graphics card to watch out for this year.

    The GECUBE HD3800 series includes the first ATI cards to support the latest DirectX 10.1 technology. It offers 32-bit floating point filtering support and breaks new ground in illumination quality with the use of Global Illumination technology. High Dynamic Range (HDR) illumination and deferred shading performance from Customer Filter Anti-Aliasing (CFAA) technology are also boosted. The addition of Geometry Shader technology in particular accelerates the processing of 3D effects such as bump mapping. Graphics data can now be cycled within the graphics card itself, greatly improving the realism of particles and shadows. Shader Model 4.1 image optimization technology is included DX10.1 as well, allowing the GECUBE HD3800 to achieve even better levels of detail and high quality visual effects. With every aspect of graphics performance has been improved to set the standard for next-generation performance and take gaming immersion and audio-visual effects to the next level.

    Good spec on the cards, but you would think that the 256MB cards should be 512MB and the 512MB cards should be 768MB or higher, inline with nVidia and such. Now-a-days who wants or uses a 256MB card?


    EDIT: thats 256MB for gaming.

    Who the **** are you to lay the law down and who says you have to like ATI to replay in a thread :wtf: get real. Most thread where Nvidia are mentioned your there with the put downs, so do one.
    Would you not say that kind of statement warranted a cynical reply? market by storm, lol

    sorry IRA, but I agree with Crow on this one.

    He's not trolling, he's pointing out a pretty silly opening statement. Even an ATI devotee like myself has to laugh at pure propaganda like that regardless of which side you might be on...
