We reviewed Sapphires Radeon HD 3850 in Whats New, Shopper 241. This is its bigger brother, the 3870. On paper, the 3870s specifications are considerably better than the pricier Gigabyte GeForce 8800GTs. The 775MHz core speed, for example, is a...

Neither of ATIs latest HD 3-series cards have the power to outperform Nvidias 8800GT, but then again the HD 3850 is priced so competitively that this doesnt matter. However, the HD 3870 is another story entirely. Its priced very closely to the GeFo...

After the disappointment of the HD2900XT and the lack of a decent mid-range card, AMD is back on track with RV670 core and, with the switch to a 55nm process, it bodes well for future developments. As it is the Sapphire HD3870 is a bit of an eye-opene...

A competent card with older games, but it cant handle the new generation. Just nine months after introducing the ATi Radeon HD 2000 series, AMD has superseded it with the HD 3800 range, which for now consists of the HD 3870 GPU and its lightweight br...

This Sapphire 3870 is our first look at AMD ATIs new GPU (graphics processing unit) codenamed the R670, and so far were impressed. Its still not up in the same bracket as NVIDIAs new Geforce 8800 GT, but there is a clear improvement over the previo...

Bottom line The Sapphire HD 3870 is by far the best video card that I have ever tested by ATi. It proved that it is a card that is almost as good as an 8800GTS 640MB which, to me, falls a little short of being the best of the best. This card did extremely well in...

Its been quite some time since we reviewed an ATI graphics card and you all have been emphatically reminding us of the same. So, heres something that you have been looking for. Launched around December 2007, the Radeon HD3870 is a mid-range card that...
Good Single slot, Bundle, Supports DX10.1 and Shader Model 4.1, Good performance.
Bad Poor Overclocker, A bit expensive.
Bottom line Going by its performance graphs in various games, it is clear that the Sapphire Radeon HD3870 performs as well as the 9600GTs and often comes dangerously close to beating the 8800GTs. Even when running Crysis on High graphics settings this mid range...

While the naming scheme may suggest that the HD 3870 is AMDs new king of the hill, it is not. Certainly the card performs better in some benchmarks than the 2900 XT, but not always. Also a difference of 970 (= 3870-2900) suggests that this is a much f...

When the Radeon HD 2900XT launched it was considerably slower than Nvidias Geforce 8800GTX. It was also noisy and lacked Universal Video Decoder (UVD) hardware, present on the HD 2400 and HD 2600, which offloads high-definition processing onto the GPU...

Bottom line The Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 3870 is currently going for about $249.99 US @ NewEgg, which puts it right inline with the lower end 8800 cards. This is about the ideal spot for the pricing seeing that the card performs at about the same level. I was...

775MHz 2.25GHz Two years (parts and labour)Just the other week, we had a rather in-depth look at graphics card. We found that—although it’s not quite as fast as Nvidia’s GeForce 8800 GT—AMD’s partners have priced it pretty attractively so that i...

Up till just 3 weeks ago, bang-for-buck, mid-range DirectX 10 graphics cards was limited to just the NVIDIA 8800GTS 320MB. The situation changed when Nvidia launched their much anticipated 8800GT based on the G92 architecture. Not only was it cheaper t...
Bottom line Both the ATI Radeon HD3850 and the HD3870 come in at a price significantly lower than their older brother, the Radeon HD2900XT. At US$179 and US$239 MSRP for the HD3850 and HD3870 respectively, the HD3870 will costs a good USD$60 dollars less than the...
