An AMD presentation for its upcoming RV670 graphics processor (officially dubbed Radeon HD 3800), has been leaked to media.
Authenticated by several reputable sources, the slides confirm previous expectations regarding the next generation video card's specs and its DirectX 10.1 support.
AMD will officially launch its ATI Radeon HD 3800 series before the end of the month. The launch will consist of two new video cards, HD 3870 and HD 3850. The HD 3870 will be AMD's new hardcore card and is expected to launch at a retail price of $250. The HD 3850 will sell for less than $150. DirectX 10.1, which would ship with Windows Vista Service Pack 1, will be supported by both of these new cards.
