So now that you have all this extra Christmas cash, what are you going to spend it on? Have you been needing a new video card, especially for all of those new computer games you just received? Have you always wanted to overclock your video card, but you don't even know where to start? Well, that is where VisionTek comes in, with its VisionTek HD3850 512MB video card, which comes factory overclocked. This video card comes just in time for all you who need a new video card, but failed to receive one from Santa. I wonder how this video card will stand up against its relatives, the HD3870 and the other HD3850 cards on the market. We will find out when we put the VisionTek HD3850 512MB video card through all the tests to see how it holds up.
When I received the VisionTek Black Box HD3850 video card, it was, not coincidently, in one of VisionTek's black boxes. The box is a very plain black with a B2 on it, as well as a flame. There is a white sticker located on the box to let you know what is inside, but it gives no indication as to what the video card specs are nor what the box is going to look like at launch.
Once you open up the box, you are able to get the first glimpse of the VisionTek HD3850 video card and all the accessories that were packaged with it. Inside the packaging is a Crossfire Rev. C bridge, a DVI-to-HDMI adapter, a DVI-to-VGA adapter, and a few video adapter cables. The package also included VisionTek's Quick Installation Guide and a Catalyst version 7.11 installation CD.
