Reference clocks and cooling
Since the release date for Radeon HD 3800 series is set for tomorrow, leaks have already began. Our colleagues over at donanimhaber.com managed to get their hands on a box and card picture of Gigabyte's HD 3870 card.
Gigabyte's card sticks to reference clocks, 775 MHz for the core and 2250MHz for GDDR4 memory. Gigabyte hasn't even changed the reference dual slot cooling design. The only difference is Gigabyte's Neverwinter Nights 2 sticker on the cooler and small Gigabyte logo on the fan.
Gigabyte is shipping this card with Neverwinter Nights 2 RPG title, which is the same thing they did back when Nvidia 8800 GT was launched. We still think that Asus's Company of Heroes/Call of Juarez game bundle is much better, but we still don't know how much less the Gigabyte version will be.
