Users will enjoy 8% and 4% improvement in gaming experiences respectively with the EAH3850 TOP/G/HTDI/256M and EAH3870 TOP/G/HTDI/512M. Along with the standard versions EAH3870/G/HTDI/512M and EAH3850/G/HTDI/256M, all the ASUS EAH3800 Series models will be upgraded soon to a second version that will come incorporated with the newest thermal solution — the Glaciator Fansink*. With its unique design, the Glaciator Fansink will keep the GPU temperature 20&#186C cooler than reference designed boards. On top of all this, the ASUS EAH3800 Series will also come bundled with the hottest DX10 game, Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts.

Up to 8% Performance Upgrade

While with the EAH3870 TOP/G/HTDI/512M, the core and memory clock performance boosts are from 775MHz up to 850MHz and from 1125MHz up to 1140MHz. Such unprecedented performance upgrades helps elevate the EAH3850 TOP/G/HTDI/256M’s 3DMark06 score from 8111 to 8779; and the EAH3870 TOP/G/HTDI/512M’s from 9304 to 9687 — an astonishing 8% and 4% improvement in speed when compared to any other reference designed board**.
