Thread Starter 
Looking on newegg I found this.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814103057
Its the ONLY 1GB and 512-bit 3870 so I'm wondering whats up with this card.
Figured I'd post it tho.

Cool... but the RAM needs to be GDDR4 to make it worth it

It's not all that impressive. I do like that cooler though - I've liked it ever since GeCube put it on the X1950XT, and I've seen Diamond and Visiontek use it since, but I've never heard any actual reviews on it. I'd like to see it compared to the stock cooler and ICEQ 3.

Yeah, I think the RAM isn't fast enough! It's bottle necking the system

That's weird. It says that the memory speed is 1800 MHz GDDR3. That can't be right. My VisionTek is 1170 GDDR4.

Making an educated guess here but I'm sure it's putting out 2340Mhz as it's DDR (Double Data Rate) It is shown both ways the half and the double so it can be confusing but as it's DDR4 I'd expect it to be more than 2000Mhz (1000Mhz, mine is that) so 2340Mhz (1170Mhz) sounds right for your card!

Absolutely the opposite.

This has much, much more memory bandwidth than the 256-bit 3870s. 1800x512 is a lot more than the 2200x256 the standard 3870s have.

The GPU simply cannot make use of the extra bandwidth. Performance would probably not significantly improve even if you slapped 5GHz GDDR5 on it.

Neat, I didn't know they had these. I wonder if you need special drivers though, that would be a pain.
