Powercolor HD3650 Extreme PCS Edition

Call of Duty 4, F.E.A.R. and Bioshock

Call of Duty 4

Call of Duty 4 is a stunning DirectX 9.0c based game that really looks awesome and has a very full featureset. With lots of advanced lighting, smoke and water effects, the game has excellent explosions and is fast and furious, perfect for our test suite.
 
COD 4
 
Call of Duty 4 handled nicely with some AA at 1368 x 768
 
F.E.A.R.

F.E.A.R. is a game based on the Lithtech Jupiter EX engine. It has volumetric lighting, soft shadows, parallax mapping and particle effects. This is a fairly old game but was a very testing one at the time of release and still looks fantastic, so we've kept it in.
 
FEAR
 
The HD3650 did very well in F.E.A.R. outperforming the 8600GT at points.
 
Bioshock

Bioshock is a game based on the Unreal Engine 3. It uses some DirectX10 features such as awesome water and smoke effects. The detail level in the game, combined with a frantic pace makes for an excellent benchmark.
 
Bioshock
 
Bioshock was more than playable at this resolution on the HD3650.

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.
