Just in case you missed the new link at the top of the page, we're hitting the news section to let you know that we’ve just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate a pair of somewhat unique Radeons, the Sapphire Ultimate HD 3850 and Atomic HD 3870.  Unlike most reference 3850s, the Ultimate HD 3850 has a 512MB frame buffer and is outfitted with a passive heat-pipe cooling system for completely silent operation.  The Atomic HD 3870 differs from ATI’s reference design as well and features higher GPU and memory speeds, a fancy single-slot cooling solution that leverages Microloops’ Vapor-X technology, and it has one of the best bundles we have seen in quite ...

It seems like a new year always evokes the feeling of renewed hope and high expectations.  And for AMD / ATI at least, 2008 appears to have reinvigorated their graphics division, which appears to be firing on all cylinders at the moment.  After a year or so of NVIDIA dominating the high-end graphics space, ATI released the Radeon HD 3870 and HD 3850 cards, which have proved to be competent alternatives at their respective price points.  Based on the RV670 GPU, the HD 38xx series has been able to provide similar or better performance than the preceding 2900 XT, while running cooler and consuming less power.  That, and their lower price points,...

Like high-end graphics cards setup in multi-GPU configurations, terabyte desktop drives, and 3GHz quad-core processors, 30-inch wide screen LCDs cater to what we like to call the "enthusiast" niche.  And though this niche obviously drives lower volume demand versus the mainstream, you have to remember that the enthusiast end-user is a very influential segment of the market, often times assisting in the definition of what will become mainstream technology tomorrow.  Not to mention 30 inches of screen real-estate is a professional workstation designer's nirvana, so perhaps this niche isn't as small as it would appear on the surface.  Regardless, though there are fewer...
