PowerColor punts overclocked ATI 3850 cards

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

PowerColor has launched its line up of graphics cards based on AMD's new ATI Radeon HD 3800-series GPUs but unlike many of its rivals, it's overclocked its 'RV670's.

In addition to 3850- and 3870-based cards clocked at the standard 670MHz and 775MHz frequencies, PowerColor said it will also offer a trio of core-overclocked cards. The first two use incorporate the 3850 clocked at 720MHz and double the standard complement of GDDR 3 to 512MB, clocked at 900Mz.

The HD 3850 PCS and HD 3850 Xtreme PCS both support HDMI output: via a DVI-connected adaptor in the case of the first card and through an integrated HDMI port on the Xtreme add-in.

The HD 3780 supports HDMI via the dongle. Its core is clocked at 800MHz while its 512MB of GDDR 4 memory runs at 1200MHz.

If the memory speeds sound familiar, it's because they're the standard speeds. PowerColor non-overclocked boards, the HD 3850 and HD 3870, used memory running at just below the standard specified by AMD: 828MHz and 1126MHz, respectively.
