The Card

The first you will notice is that the cooler of the Diamond HD 3850 is totally different to the stock reference cooler. It sits on the middle of the card, covered by a metal box. We will take a closer look at the cooler on the next page.

As promised the card uses a dual slot cooling solution for improved thermal performance.

The output configuration follows today's standard. Two DVI ports are available, both are dual link capable, so you can run two 2560x1600 displays at once. In case you still have an old analog VGA monitor you can connect it using the included DVI to VGA adapter. Also included with the package is an HDMI adapter that lets you connect your HD TV set directly to the card with full support for HDMI+HDCP+Audio.

Here are the front and the back of the card, high-res versions are also available (front, back). If you choose to use these images for voltmods etc, please include a link back to this site.
