In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 3800 series are marginally better than the AMD FireGL V7200.

The HD 3800 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The HD 3800 was released over a year more recently than the FireGL V7200, and so the HD 3800 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the FireGL V7200.

The HD 3800 has 256 MB more video memory than the FireGL V7200, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the FireGL V7200 has superior memory performance.

The FireGL V7200 has 41.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 3800, which means that the memory performance of the FireGL V7200 is noticeably better than the HD 3800.

The FireGL V7200 has 8 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 3800 series has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the FireGL V7200 is 3 and the actual shader performance of the HD 3800 is 0. The FireGL V7200 having 3 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FireGL V7200 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 3800.

The FireGL V7200 requires 450 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 3800 series. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the FireGL V7200.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, and civil engineering architectural software such as Chief Architect, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations.
Radeon HD 3800 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon HD 3830, Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870 whose rank is a balance between the three and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
