Lower cost HD 3850 X2 is on the way

Dual RV670 alternative

| Posted: Mar 26, 2008 10:42 pm

Chinese website HKEPC have sourced information which indicates that AMD has plans to release a lower cost HD 3850 X2 into the market, scheduled for launch sometime around the middle of the year.

 

With a said launch price of somewhere between $299 and $379, this should be a nice reaching point for those of you really keen on the idea of having a Dual-GPU singular graphics card in your rig without the premium the flagship HD 3870 X2 carries with it.

 

 

Compared to the 3870 X2, the 3850 X2 will look very similar in the flesh with the same RV670 cores used, but will of course run with lower core and memory clockspeeds along with the choice of 512MB and 1GB memory capacities depending on what the vendors choose to offer.
