What kind of benchmark results are you guys getting? I'm sure mine are way below average and I can't for love nor money figure out why. Anyone else getting CCC showing GPU Clock as 300 mhz?

Running a 3850 (cat 8.8 report 3800 series..meh) and so far I much say this card screams.
Fired up Bioshock (got when $15 on sale via Steam)...woof! gorgeous after using shadershock on
an X800pro.
Flatout2 sings nicely, tho ansio makes it look fuzzy for some reason.
FEAR's system test amped up the settings a bit, and wow, what a difference.
STALKER had a snit after the change, but new float32 fixed...looks great, but dang got up to 84C w/ dynamic lighting.

Noticed the fan settings when overidden are 1/2 what percentage they are set for.
Set for 30% > 60C, and ran at 60%. Set at 15% and the fan ran at 30%.

Humm, anyone else noticed this?

Running ATT 27b3.

Hi all!

I have a Sapphire HD 3850 AGP 512mb, an Ati DVI-HDMI adapter, and one question: it is possible to enable the hdmi sound support in this card? I know that the Powercolor 3850 AGP has it! What if i try to flash the Powercolor bios in my card?

Thank you, i'm sorry for bad english!!

Roberto

You should be able to do it through the CCC (Catalyst Control Center) I would have thought.

Thanks, but there is no option about that. And Windows doesn't recognize the Hdmi Audio peripheric. It is possible that Powercolor has, and Sapphire has not audio support?

You could try searching the Sapphire/Powercolor forums, I expect they'd have a thread or two on this specific problem.

Good luck, and if you find the answer, don't forget to post it here. Someone else might find that information useful.

Well with 9X being phased out, they only work on drivers for the NT System of 2000 and XP or higher.

You could try downloading the XP drivers and extracting them to a folder and try it manually through Device Manager... o_O

As long as it's for a 3850 AGP card we're not going off topic - dual boot is the way. ;) Why anyone is running 9x I don't know. :p

I use it for old games.. With support for my rendition verite card that i occationally fire up for some nastalgic d3d titles. Been using my x850pro with 9x drivers, I was getting strange pulsing and jittery-ness with xp and the x850pro on this machine, I tried all sorts of x850 drivers/ driver cleaner, omega's no dot net, no ccc etc.. I was hoping for newer ati cards to support dx9.0 and windows 9x, or atleast not have the weird pulsing frames with xp on old agp cards. :)

Do you know if you can run games like UT2004, or carmageddon 2 in windows 2000? are there windows 2000 drivers for this? dx9.0c?

This thread is only for the 3850 I'm afraid, but as we're talking about it, might as well help. I would have thought the XP drivers would work under 2000, but don't quote me on that. As for DX9, that should definitely install.

Have you tried the AGP hotfix or just the normal driver release for your card? You might have more joy with the AGP hotfix if you haven't. You're best off starting a new thread as this is solely for the 3850 as I said. Hence the title. ;)

I'm talking about the 3850agp

driver/support, for 2000 or if gaming even works in 2000, cause the only reason I'd want to get the 3850agp is for gaming, mainly with d3d titles that use dx 6 through dx 9.0, and I don't like windows xp, or vista.. Not to ask anyone to inquire as to why I don't like it, don't bother. I don't like it, not going to change my mind, nuff said.

I've got some additional interest in finding out if there is driver support for 3850agp and gaming while using Server 2k3 R2 sp2. So pretty much, unless you know of a way to get drivers for windows 9x for the 3850 AGP, nevermind about that comment.

For now It's 2000 or server 2k3, as my main interest, cause I've read that some games work pretty good on server 2k3. I'm interested in finding out if there's drivers, for the agp3850, and game support, and what games are compatible with these two OS's mainly if UT2004 will run, but I have some other titles...

I can look up and ask about the non related OS/chipset/additional driver stuff somewhere else/ np

Well, nuts

Had to rma the 3850 (freaking no-script cleared out my post....grrrr).

"Driver issues" were power issues.

Rewired and tightened up connectors and all was well for over 2 weeks.

Then got pauses (A64 3700, no surprise there sometimes), then longer pauses,
then CTD's, then bluescreens, then no booting past the XP logo, or games
could not find a dx9 card or the lovely 640x480 in astounding 4 bit color.

Oh, yeah...not happening.

Thing I noticed was the card was bending downward either from the heat, or
from the power adapter (or both?).

Sigh.:ohwell: + :mad:

Maybe it is time for a dual core PCIe system? :D

I don't see any reason as to why the 3850 wouldn't work in 2000 and I know it would work in 2003 - you'd just have to use the XP drivers.

Which brings me to this, they've finally released the 8.9 hotfix - fuggin' w00t!

As they don't allow direct links.

Get 'em down yurh boyz!

Cool, I will check this out for my nephew, I think he can get server 2k3 standard r2 sp2 as part of the student software offer, and right now he's just plottering around on an x800pro
