- go with a beer
- Hi .... buy Ji Force .... 8 or 9 series .... good luck
- Normal vidyuha! My friend is 2600 he can not and 3600 !!!
- Something in between a full GeForce 8600 and a trimmed 8800
- The rhetorical question is that for one is normal, for another it is not normal and vice versa.
- if compared with modern video cards, it's already so-so, it's too old. buy it is not necessary.
- AMD Radeon HD 3400 / 3600: official announcement
AMD has planned for today a comprehensive announcement of a whole pleiad of new video cards for the mainstream market and for the Hi-End segment. In connection with the postponement of the launch of the flagship solution Radeon HD 3870 X2, today's event is dedicated only to younger products.
So, the 23 day of January was the date of the official release of the accelerators from the Radeon HD 3400 and HD 3600 series, focused on the market of the initial and middle price range. Low-end graphics cards are represented by a duo of Radeon HD 3450 and HD 3470 (RV620). Over time, they will replace the Radeon HD 2400 Pro / XT (RV610). For more demanding gaming enthusiasts, AMD and partners have produced the Radeon HD 3650 DDR2 and HD 3650 (RV635), which will be replaced in the near future with the Radeon HD 2600 Pro / XT (RV630).
From innovations that came to the mass sector with new accelerators, we note the support for the DirectX 10.1 API, the next-generation ATI CrossFireX multi-chip technology, the dual-bandwidth PCI Express 2.0 graphics bus, and the ATI PowerPlay power saving technology. Video cards from the Radeon HD 3400 / 3600 series are fully compatible with modern computer games and provide a decent level of performance. The integrated video processor Unified Video Decoder (UVD) and ATI Avivo HD technology guarantee high-quality video processing up to Full HD 1080p. When viewing HD video from Blu-ray Discs or HD DVDs, the UVD video processor will free up the CPU of the PC from unnecessary work.
It should also be noted that the use of advanced 55-nm process technology for the production of RV635 and RV620 has significantly increased their frequency potential, reduced power consumption, heat generation and heating. "Ingenious" support for the new graphic chips of DisplayPort and HDMI interfaces will enable partners to produce various modifications of video cards for media centers and home entertainment systems.
The list of AMD production partners that supported the release of new Radeon HD 3400 / 3600 video cards includes the following companies: ASUS, ASKTECH, Club 3D, Gigabyte, GeCube, Diamond MM, HIS, Jetway, MSI, Palit, PowerColor, Sapphire, Triplex, VisionTek.
