Diamond Radeon HD3650 1GB Review :: Test Setup and Performance

Our test system has gone through a major overhaul. This system should push the card to the limits and we’ll see how it stacks up against other cards. One thing to note, the 3650 is the middle chip of ATI’s 3xxx family and should not perform near that of the HD3870 or 9800GTX cards as they are out of the price league of this one.
