IntroductionIn November 16, 2007 AMD unveils RV670, the first GPU that supporting DirectX10.1. RV670 is also a first GPU using 55nm process  technology. HD 3850 and HD 3870 uses this chip. HD 3870 is for high end while HD 3850 is only a mid-range product. These products fill the gap of the ATI product line between RV630/610 and R600, and also help AMD regain some of the market share.

RV630, RV635′s predecessor

After RV670, AMD will also debut their mainstream GPU RV635 to replace RV630. Same as RV670, RV635 also uses 55nm processing tech, and supports DirectX 10.1, Model 4.1, PCIe 2.0. VGA card of RV635 will be called as ATI Radeon HD 3600 family, to take HD2600Pro and HD2600XT’s market place.

    Rumor has it that this card will retail for about 50 euros. If that is truelly the case then this card is ok. You can play episode 2 at 1600*1200 so it will be ok for a small number of older games.

    Try also the fur stress test of GPU Caps viewer to heat up the gpu: http://www.ozone3d.net/gpu_caps_viewer/

  5. Doug Friedman Says:

    The 1600×1200 resolution test shows that the new card’s 128bit memory interface is not sufficient for 1600×1200. The older HD2600XT has 256bit memory interface. Basically the card is for 1280×1024 no AA no AF setting only(basically for those idiots who own 17 or 19 inch LCDs. People with 20+ LCDs would buy the 8800GT and enjoy games the way it’s supposed to be played.

    ATI can pump out castrated video cards all they want with bigger marketing number, it only makes geeks hate them more.

  6. Doug Says:

    Not all of us on 19inch monitors are idiots. Sometimes there are limiting factors like supply problems or rediculous prices on 20+ inch monitors in some countries. Hell my 2 8800GT graphics cards costs the same as a 22inch wide screen at some suppliers. So please hold of the generalizations.

  7. Doug Friedman Says:

    @my mini-me Doug:

    Hey, mini me. In the US, 24 inch 1920×1200 monitor can be had for $299. A 17 inch LCD is $179, and a 19 inch is $200-$250 depending on brand. So in the U.S., we are predicting that anything less than a 24 inch will be phased away into third world countries.

  8. Doug Friedman Says:

    If you believe that the smallest LCD people will buy is the 24 inch LCDs(and prices will continue to drop, and it will be $150 in a year or so), then a graphics card needs a minimum 512MB of frame buffer memory for the 1920×1200 and 256bit memory bandwidth. Therefore, the cheapest card to drive those monitors are the 512MB HD3850 for $199. Anything less will be obsolete simply due to display requirements. But at that price levels, people will opt for the 512MB Geforce 8800GT for $50 more.

  9. Jeff Says:

    JeGX, thanks, that’s a awesome OpenGL tool for us!

  10. Richard Says:

    Doug: Sorry about the name thing. Not enough coffee in my system to read the form properly…

    Sadly I live in South Africa… A 24inch monitor directly from the supplier is R5500 + vat (14%) (+/- $900)…

    19inch monitors are out of stock everywhere leaving us with 17inch for about $200 + vat when its available…

  11. JeGX Says:

    You’re welcome Jeff. Glad you like it ;)

    I have noticed that in digital cameras, unique sensors help to concentrate automatically. Those kind of sensors regarding some camcorders change in in the area of contrast, while others make use of a beam associated with infra-red (IR) light, especially in low light. Higher standards cameras at times use a combination of both programs and will often have Face Priority AF where the dslr camera can ‘See’ a new face while focusing only in that. Many thanks for sharing your notions on this blog site.
