Sapphire HD 3650 OC


Moving to the HD 3650 we have a larger box that gives us the same run down as the smaller one really. The bottom of the card has the model number while we see the brand across the top.



The middle of the card shows us another picture of a woman with a gun and to the right we see some of the main features like 512MB of GDDR3, Overclocked and the fact that PowerDVD 7 is included with in the package.



Turning the box over we have some more details on the features of the card along with a bit of a blurb. There is also a little section that tells us what is included within the box. As was the case with the HD 3450, we see some awards with mention of the model and some of the main features across the bottom again.



Moving inside the package we have a few more extra bits and pieces over the HD 3450. Apart from the DVI to VGA connector, Component out cable and S-Video to RCA connector we also have a Crossfire connector and DVI to HDMI convertor.



Apart from a quick install guide and driver CD we have 3DMark06, Cyberlink DVD Suite and a copy of PowerDVD version 7.



With the package out the way we can check out the card; we see a very similar design to that of the HD 2600 card from Sapphire. There is a little cooler that runs across the card, no power connectors and a crossfire connector across the top of the card.



Finally we move to the I/O side and find ourselves looking at two Dual Link DVI connectors and a TV-Out port.


As we mentioned before, this particular card is overclocked; instead of the stock 725MHz core, Sapphire have pushed it up to 800MHz with the GDDR3 coming clocked in at 1800MHz DDR.
