Just five and a half days to launch and we managed to get a picture of a Radeon HD 3870 card. The card is based on the RV670XT chip and it will be clocked at 775MHz if not even faster. The Holy Grail speed is 825MHz.
ATI was smart this time, as it used a dual slot cooler, since the single slot G92 tends to be quite noisy in 3D mode. This was the only way to get rid of the noise.
This card should be available on the 15th, but ATI will prioritize the RV670PRO or Radeon HD 3850 cards at launch.
