Default Powercolor HD 3850 AGP 512MB injects life into your old rig

WITH PCI EXPRESS having become the standard for graphics cards over the past years – we could hardly believe our ears when ATI partners started announcing they were doing their own AGP thing with the HD 3850. We immediately bummed a card and as sure as eggs the delivery guy was knocking at our door a couple of weeks later – the delay justified by “driver development”.

But “an AGP card?” you ask. We’ve got good reason to: late last year we retired an aging Pentium 4 machine, long past its glory days (if ever it had one, it was a Pentium 4 after all...) and now, low and behold, PowerColor springs this surprise on the world, saving AGP graphics from extinction with the very surprising HD 3850 PCS AGP 512MB.

Default

the last "do-able" AGP card was the 1950 Pro from ATI, anybody planning on gaming on his older PC and looking for more speed, should opt for new mobo/CPU with PCI Express, you will recover the small extra cost in no time
