Rumor has it that AMD is busily preparing a new graphics card in its Radeon HD 3800 series line-up.


HD 3830 is based on the ATI RV670 core and is a cut down version of the 3850 and 3870 in the sense that it has a 128-bit memory bus which is said to provide roughly half the memory bandwidth of the HD 3850 and 3870. It will come with up to 256MB of onboard memory.


It included the same features as 3850 and 3870 including DirectX 10.1, PCIe 2.0, UVD, 320 stream processors, 16 texture filtering units and 16 raster operators. It should be launching sometime in April and could hit store shelves as low as $100 USD as pricing competition heats up in the industry.
