HD3850 hits skid row pricing

Written by Fudzilla staff

€65


DAAMIT's HD3850 has long been touted as the best buy card in its class, fully capable of running even some of the latest games at the most common resolutions. It's also got good overclocking potential, just in case you need a bit more.

When it was launched last November it was priced at more than €150, and just three moths ago you would have to cough up around €130 to get one, but in under a hundred days the price has been halved to just €65. It's still unavailable at this price, but it should be in stock in a matter of days.

We're talking about a plain HD3850 with 256MB of memory, reference clocks and cooler. Nonetheless, if you're not a hardcore gamer, or if you've got a small screen, this is still quite a good card in terms of performance, not to mention the price/performance ratio which was great even at much higher prices. Just for comparison, for €65 you can get an HD3650 or a Geforce 8600GT/GTS, and that's about it. As you probably know, an HD3850 will wipe the floor with all of them without breaking a sweat.

The cheapest HD3850 with 512MB of memory costs €83, while its big brother, the HD3870, can be yours for €102. If you're not an ATI fan, you can get a GT 9600 from XFX for €94, an 8800GT with 256MB for just €78 or an 8800GS with 384MB for €64.
