Powercolor HD3650 Extreme PCS Edition

Synthetic Benchmarks - 3DMark

FutureMark 3DMark03

3DMark03 is a benchmark that uses mainly a DirectX 8 featureset including several pixel fillrate tests. I included this test in the review to see an approximation of how well old games will play on the current gen cards, as well as how well each card copes with the fillrate tests.

FutureMark 3DMark05

3DMark05 is a benchmark based on DirectX 9 with more advanced shading and bump-mapping techniques, as well as a tough CPU test integrated.

FutureMark - 3DMark06

3DMark06 is a more complex 3D benchmark, using many of the more advanced techniques found in DirectX 9.0c such as utilising Shader Model 3.0 and HDR lighting to create a tough benchmark that stresses the GPU and CPU.

In all three tests the HD3650 comes off fairly well, although never quite topping the 8600 GT.

Not a bad little card at all Kemp, I was very surprised at the performance. It's a pity that it's slightly higher priced because by the time e-tailers add their various profit margins to it the 8600 GT becomes a winner in both performance and price. Regardless, what an insanely cool running card.

I think the market will price it a bit lower after a while. I read in another article that current draw was about 75 watts (quite a bit more than the 8600GT)

I notice the 2 connections for the bridge, I thought how cool to run 3 or 4 of them.

I realize the drivers arent the best now but I just think its so cool to see the 4 cards, not to mention no power pigtails needed either.
