Icon17 HD3850-3870 reviews second roundup

AMD/ATI have been a bit quiet of late but thankfully the silence has broken. We're taking a look at their HD3850 and seeing what it can really do.

"PowerColor, unleash the gaming power. Only a couple of months ago AMD released the Radeon HD 2900 series and along with that introduction came as well the low-end and mid-range products to go up against NVIDIA. Just recently NVIDIA did a re-spin of their popular G80 core, with a die-shrink and optimizations to come up with a renewed G92 which is powering the GeForce 8800 GT and at a very attractive price tag. And now AMD couldn't sit and wait too long so they also did work hard to come up with the first DirectX 10.1 compatible graphics core the RV670 and also supporting PCI Express 2.0. The Radeon HD 3850 will be replacing the Radeon HD 2900 PRO accelerator."

We have just published our review on the New Radeons, we compared them with 8800GT and HD 2900 XT 1GB, please put us in your review list or news.

The ATI Radeon HD 3800 series graphics cards are here. We will explore performance in Crysis, Unreal Tournament 3, NFS: Pro Street, and TimeShift. We can now recommend two ATI graphics cards for your gaming needs.

HardOCP gives a shining review; but are they focusing on price too much? Richbastard made an interesting comment on a Dutch forum regarding comparing prices.

If you are building a game PC (no other reason to buy such an expensive 3D card) how much a difference is $50-70? If the total systems costs $1000 with Radeon 3870 and $1070 with 8800 GT, is that 7% price difference not worth the 20+% performance increase ? I think so
