Diamond prematurely release HD 3850, 3870 specs
Diamond Multimedia are the latest company to the jump on the leaking-product-pages-before-release bandwagon. The latest victim, or rather victims, is the un-announced HD 3850 and 3870, which use the RV670. The site lists the HD 3850 as being clocked at 668/828MHz, and includes 256MB of GDDR3 memory. While on the other hand, the faster HD 3870 is clocked at 775/1200MHz and accompanies 512MB of GDDR4 memory. The 55nm RV670 core includes 320 stream processors and a 256-bit bus. Among DX10.1, it adds support for PCI Express 2.0 and shader model 4.1. The RV670 boards are scheduled to arrive alongside Phenom and the 790 FX (RD790) this month.
