AIB’s are free to overclock each board as they see fit, so the above table is just reference info. So far the following partners have announced boards based on the RV620 and RV635 GPU’s:

PowerColor, Asus, Sapphire, GeCube and MSI.

Additionally, various previews have been published over at:

Hardspell, Anandtech, Hothardware, Hexus, Bit-Tech.

Considering its sub-$100 projected price point, the Radeon HD 3650 performed well throughout testing. The previous generation Radeon HD 2600 XT is available for about $110 to $170 on-line depending on its memory configuration. Despite having a lower price and consuming less power, the new Radeon HD 3650 was able to outpace the 2600 XT in a couple of benchmarks (HL2: EP2 and Crysis), and where the 2600 XT pulled ahead it wasn?t by a significant margin. Video playback performance also proved to be a strong point for the Radeon HD 3650.

Kudos to The Inquirer for gathering the preview links.
