Sapphire Radeon HD 3870
Posted by newsbot on December 10th 2007

As I said during my Radeon HD 3870 architectural review, I’m abig fanof the product and I believe that Sapphire’s implementation is a goodone. While Sapphire hasn’t changed much in terms of card design—it’sessentially a reference card wearing Sapphire-branded make up—thecompany has included a comprehensive bundle in the box. And when youfactor in that most of what’s included in the box is useful, the dealjust sweetens itself a bit.The one thing that’s plaguing both not just AMD’s partners though, butalso Nvidia’s is availability of these newly released graphics cards.Sapphire’s Radeon HD 3870 card is currently unavailable for purchase atany of the major UK online retailers, but it’s on pre-order at a verytempting £140 (inc. VAT). If you consider that Nvidia’s GeForce 8800 GT is starting at around£170—and in some cases going over and above £200—Sapphire’s card looksto be pretty good value. Once you add in the good overclockingheadroom, the deal almost seems too good to be true. Thankfully it’snot (as long as Sapphire can meet the demand for the product) and, ifyou can find the product in stock, I wholeheartedly recommend thiscard.
