Radeon HD 3600 Reviews

CNET Reviewers Said:
The Radeon HD 3650 is a 512 MB, mainstream 3D card.Compared to other mainstream 3D display cards on the market, it is relatively inexpensive at around $105.
Pros: Has a PCI express 2.0 x16 interface, which is considerably faster than some similarly priced display cards.Also, this graphics card is built around an ATI Radeon HD 3650 chipset, which is more advanced than some similarly priced display cards.In fact, the average cost of a product with this advanced a chipset is $140.
Cons: None noted, given available product data.
Suitability: A mainstream 3D graphics card, suited for the casual gamer, and those who do not need the latest 3D card on the market.This card supports DirectX 10 technology, used in Microsoft's Windows Vista OS, and is the new technology for the upcoming generation of high-performance games.
Value: In view of its relatively inexpensive price, this graphics card has great features for the money.Also, if you were to judge primarily by the card's GPU you could expect to pay as much as 30% more for a similarly capable card.
