AMD Radeon HD 3830

AMD is developing a third group of video cards based on its Radeon HD 3800 series, claim sources for the Chinese site HKEPC. The debut card will be the 3830, based on the company's RV670 architecture, and modeled after the company's existing 3850 and 3870 cards. Like the 3850, the 3830 is said to have 320 unified shader processors, and 256MB of onboard RAM; it uses a 128-bit bus instead of the standard 256-bit one however, significantly impacting performance and placing the card on the lowest rung of AMD's high-end offerings.

A release date is currently pegged for the middle of April, at prices between $119 and $129, depending on the manufacturer and possible tweaks. It is expected to be faster than NVIDIA's GeForce 8600 GTS, but cheaper than the recent 9600 GT. [via The Register]
