PowerColor Brings Overclocked HD 3850 & HD 3870 Boards

Not long after the official release, TUL Corporation informs that new standard and overclocked versions of the HD 3850 and HD 3870 boards are now ready to roll. Both product lines aim to bring HD gaming graphics to serious gamers with the latest advancements in graphic card technology.

HD 3850 and HD 3870 are built on the first GPUs on 55nm processing technology and PowerColor has taken full advantage of this by ramping the core speeds with the help of some unique cooling; the overclocked versions are dubbed Professional Cooling System (PCS) editions.

The whole product line comes with a barrage of the cool technologies, with the support for PCI Express 2.0, Microsoft DirectX 10.1, Shader Model 4.1, Universal Video Decode, HDMI and plug-and-play ATI CrossFireX multi-GPU technology.

"HD 3800 series from PowerColor packs the latest and greatest into a couple of very competitive product lines." says Ted Chen, CEO of TUL Corporation. "With a full lineup that includes the standard to ramped up speeds, hopefully gamers will be spoiled by our choices."

This is the card that ATI should've released 6 months ago. Low power, high performance, stock RAM heatsinks, normal-orientated GPU... :P

...and RAM that overclocks to 2750mhz. :twitch:

The 3870 does look pretty strong for the price, but I really wish they could get their partners to do better with their warranties. And the Tt DuOrb cooler they try out in the review looks cool too, though I generally think Tt fans are noisy junk...

Ugh, its a toss up between GeCube or Powercolor on which card I buy. I like the Powercolor Zalman cooler? (whatever it is, its bad ass). However, that TEC type cooler on the GeCube should lead to a better oc. Which one to get ::sigh::
