Powercolor HD3650 Extreme PCS Edition

Unreal Tounament 3 and Crysis

Unreal Tournament 3

I have included UT3, even though it is another UE3 game as it is a fast, frantic and furious multiplayer mash-up experience. Using advanced DirectX 9.0c features, the Unreal Engine looks fantastic and runs on almost all half-decent modern GPU's making it an ideal all-round test.

Again the HD3650 handled the Unreal Engine 3 and was good fun to play.
 
Crysis

Crysis has to be our most challenging benchmark to date. Running under Windows Vista and using DirectX 10 path, Crysis is currently limited to using "High" settings, rather than "Very High" using any of today's single cards. I also ramped down the resolution to 1680 x 1050 to make sure that I was happy with the framerates.
 
Crysis
 
Crysis was found a little more of a challenge for the HD3650 and got a little laggy in places. You will notice, though, that the HD3650 managed a higher average frame rate in this DX10 intensive game than 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.
