Cheapest I could find for this card online.


Advance to the next generation of gaming with incredible performance, life-like graphics and support for the latest Microsoft® DirectX® 10.1. With 320 stream processors and PCI Express® 2.0 support, you're ready for the most demanding titles. And thanks to plug-and-play ATI CrossFireX upgradeability, it is easy to turbo-charge your 3D performance. ATI Radeon HD 3800 Series GPUs feature ATI Avivo HD technology with advanced audio, video processing, display and connectivity capabilities for high definition entertainment solutions. ATI Avivo HD technology includes fully integrated HD audio capabilities and supports playback of multi-channel (5.1) audio streams. When combined with the integrated HDCP copy protection, ATI Avivo HD enables a one-cable HDMI connectivity solution to high definition home theaters. Connect your PC to your home theater and start watching HD content from your computer using new ATI Radeon HD 3800 series graphics cards. The ATI Radeon HD 3800 Series is designed to decode and playback Blu-ray and HD DVD formats using dedicated hardware within the GPU. This technology, known as UVD or Unified Video Decoding, is part of ATI Avivo HD, the new collection of technologies that are designed to improve the visual and connectivity capabilities of ATI Radeon HD 3800 Series GPUs. UVD offloads the intensive process of HD video decoding and playback from the CPU while improving the visual quality. This means you can get smooth, high quality HD video playback from entry level PCs or free up the CPU for other tasks while you enjoy the movie. And with HDCP built into the GPU, the new cards easily enable playback of protected content. The ATI Radeon HD 3800 Series GPU further enhances the HD entertainment experience by making it easy to make the connection to a big- screen or home theater system. With built-in 5.1 surround audio (AC3) pass-through capabilities, the new GPUs and graphics cards support a single HDMI connection direct to a compatible TV or receiver. This single cable carries both the HD video and 5.1 surround audio for a clean, high definition connection. Some graphics cards will have an HDMI connector built in, while others will use a special ATI Radeon DVI-I to HDMI adapter. These options mean greater choice and flexibility for consumers when connecting to PC monitors or home theaters for maximum enjoyment of full HD 1080p content. ATI Radeon HD 3800 series GPUs offer full support for the new DirectX® 10 and DirectX 10.1 API (Application Program Interface) from Microsoft®; ready to meet the demanding needs of new, next generation games. DirectX® 10 is the first totally new DirectX® in the last 4 years and brings important graphics innovations that can be used by game developers for the next generation of games. DirectX® 10 introduces crisp, never-before-seen detail-rich images, visual effects and game dynamics capable of accurately simulating the real world. No matter which ATI Radeon HD 3800 Series GPU you choose, you can be assured that games will look as good as the developer intended! New ATI CrossFireX multi-GPU technology takes your gaming experience to the next level with more scalability, performance and compatibility. The technology combines the awe-inspiring capabilities of multiple ATI Radeon graphics cards and an ATI CrossFireX ready motherboard to meet the hard-core demands of your alternate reality. New ATI Radeon HD graphics cards are designed with an internal ATI CrossFireX Bridge Interconnect system to simplify installation. Experience stunning visual realism in today's demanding 3D games with uncompromising image quality, especially on HD displays. ATI CrossFireX: Multiply and Conquer! ATI Radeon HD 3800 series GPUs provide total support for the Microsoft® Windows Vista® operating system and improve the performance of the Windows Aero graphical interface. You will be amazed by the dazzling 3D visual effects and have peace of mind that the ATI Catalyst software and drivers are designed and thoroughly tested to ensure full compatibility and stability to keep you up and running. All these new technologies and features make the ATI.

Has anyone got any experience with these cards yet? I would like to know how they run.
suspended#3
to answer your questions jaz. They work good for the price, not as good as a 8800GT or a 512mb 8800GTS, recommend if the extra £50 is too far. This isnt personall experience but from facts i know, benchamrks and from friends.
Voted hot as its an XT which are expensive :)

So for this pricepoint this would be the best performer? cheers for the reply

you sure as this uses new gdrr4 ram and has faster core and faster memory and uses new shader model 4.1 and the important new DX10.1 ? example of what it beats here mind you it all depends what GT or GTS you compare this with i suppose. http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-035-GI&groupid=701&catid=56&subcat=1008

Cracking price for a good card. Falls short of th cards mentioned above. However 2 of these bad boys in xfire scale really well together compared to 2 8800gt in SLI.

They don't get close to beating 8800GTs in performance. Check out the US Tomshardware charts, or reviews of these cards on trusted reviews to see for yourself.

yeh 8800gt beats it slightly but ati beats gts easily and the ati has the important dx10.1 spec and new shader spec etc, i prefer that to a few fps extra and the price is great.

10.1 means nothing at the moment. When games come out for that, you'll need a new card anyway.
suspended#10
10.1 and 4.1 are not important at this time. All i remember is 10.1 is just little pieces of fluff to look good. Great but Crossfireing them only gives you say .3x more, depends on the game/drivers/situation, crysis still laughs at it.

What about the new 8800GTS? The previous 8800GTS version with 320Mb and 640Mb use a different core G80 to the newer 512Mb 8800GTS card (G92) which now clocks in performance wise supposedly a fraction above a std 8800GT card. Reason supposedly that ifs data starved as it has the later core (better peformance) and features of the GTX and Ultra its bus is only 256bits (restricts the extra performance the core gives) rather than 320bits the older GTS has and 384bits the GTX/Ultra have.

Really needs something liek tomshareware to test these to show that this latter GTS will be futher up the scale than the GT and ATI3870 will be.

How confusing is this gettting LOL.

And I really don't care which mfr' is better as I have no loyalty to either as they are both as bad as each other for doing the "mines better than yours" and yet still having spates of rubbish drivers through out there histories LOL

Just to throw a spanner in the works the geforce 9000's are coming out soon also:)

The GTS can already be had for less than £200. If they drop on some offer by another 10 or so quid, then it's worth going for a GTS. However the GTS is a dual slot, so it's bigger than the GT. Something to consider if you're short of space and want to run 2 cards together

i like fluff so its important to me ;)

the 8800GTS(new ones) beat the gt not by huge amounts but still noticable, at larger resolutions its better (average fps in more scenariors is like 10fps at 1600 and 1900) and as said previously these can be had for £200, scan.co.uk sell a BFG overclockd version for £196 i think(i planning on buying one), if u want the link pm me.

The 256bit isnt much of a bottleneck as you can see it is better then the old versions so nvidia must of had a reason to put 256bit instead of 300(what ever it used to be xD).
#16
Does anyone know what difference the "XT" makes for this card? The clock speeds appear to be standard...
#17
I think thats just the naming convention for all ATI cards
#18
If anyone is thinking of buying this card, don't rush into it - the new Vidia 9600GT (for around £120 delivered) may be a better card - check reviews.

If you prefer this, there's also a Powercolor HD 3870 XT now available at eBuyer for £126.
#19
In response to above there's a Geforce 9600gt 512mb at Novatech, here:
