A HD3650 is not meant for the high-level enthusiast wanting the highest in-game settings with anti-aliasing and anisotropic turned on all the way. For that you need an enthusiast card like the HD3870 or HD3870X2, which are not in the same price range as the HD3650. To that end, comparing a HD3870 with a 3650 game experience is going to be extremely one-sided and not a fair comparison.

Assassin's Creed is the latest game from Ubisoft released for the Xbox 360, Windows PC and is one of a growing list of DirectX 10 games. This game is of special interest as it was the first game to tout DirectX 10.1 features that the HD3650 supports. The game manufacturer decided to remove support for DirectX 10.1 in their latest patch with no word on whether it will be enabled again. The HD3650 plays the game well, with reasonable framerates at 1280x1024 no AA no AF.

GRID is the latest PC racing game available. It has wonderfully detailed graphics with shiny surfaces and reflections on the cars that make it seem realistic almost. The game played ok on the HD3650 with 1280x1024 no AA no AF playable. To really enjoy this game I would suggest a faster card as the racing genre is fast-paced with lots of turns and the need for speed. I prefer a racing game feel fast and on the HD3650 it is just ok.
