Unlike the PCI-Express version this card lacks Crossfire connectors, and has a heatsink that covers memory modules. The PCI-Express version of this card which we tested had integrated HDMI connector, and we hope that Powercolor will decide to make the same version for AGP as well, since this might be the perfect card for HTPC, but until then AGP version is stuck with DVI-HDMI adapter. It looks like AGP isn’t dead after all, at least not yet. The HD 3800 series might be the last stand for AGP, and HD 3850 is just the card that can revive old and dusty AGP system… The AGP version of HD 3850 should be available sometimes in January.
