HIS Radeon HD 3850 IceQ 3 TurboX

Final Thoughts


You can see that a heavily overclocked card like the HIS HD 3850 does a pretty good job of keeping up with the 8800GT 512MB. The good news is that the HIS HD 3850 manages to come in at about $50 AUD less than the cheapest 8800GT.


When you throw in the fact that you have regular driver updates from AMD the card looks pretty good indeed. The HD 3850 has impressed us the whole time, but the problem is that the 8800GT managed to over shadow the card since its release.


AMD have some good cards on the market at the moment but it seems that a lot of people aren't really giving them a chance; it's safe to say that the 8800 series have been drilled into our heads so much as the top graphics card that we sometimes can't comprehend looking at anything else.


HIS have done a good job with the HD 3850, the IceQ 3 cooler is as good as always and manages to do a good job of keeping the card cool. The overclock out of the box is very nice and really helps it stand out from the pack.


If you're looking for a card that packs a bit more punch over the standard HD 3850 the HIS IceQ 3 TurboX offering may be the card for you. It's one card worth having a look at if you're in the market for a HD 3850.
