One would think that AMD’s sub-$200 graphics line-up is quite diverse currently, but as the latest talk around Taiwan has it, a new card is planned for an April release. The Radeon HD 3830 is a low-mid-range card powered by the 55nm RV670 chip, with 320 Stream Processors and yet to be determined clocks. The main difference between the 3830 and the 3850/70 is the memory interface, the latter having 256-bit while the upcoming release boasting just a 128-bit interface.

The aforementioned price slots the HD 3830 nicely behind the HD 3850’s recently cut price of $145. HKEPC note that the board’s core is apparently “locked” from being used on a 256-bit interface card. They add that this is not a re-branded HD 3690 – a board limited to China with matching specs – and it should arrive as early as April.
