In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 3850 AGP are significantly better than the AMD FireGL V7600.

The HD 3850 was released over a year more recently than the FireGL V7600, and so the HD 3850 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the FireGL V7600.

The FireGL V7600 and the Radeon HD 3850 AGP have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 3850 has 1.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FireGL V7600, which means that the memory performance of the HD 3850 is marginally better than the FireGL V7600.

The FireGL V7600 has 240 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 3850 AGP has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the FireGL V7600 is 94 and the actual shader performance of the HD 3850 is 214. The HD 3850 having 120 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 3850 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FireGL V7600.

The Radeon HD 3850 AGP requires 75 Watts to run but there is no entry for the FireGL V7600. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the FireGL V7600 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the HD 3850. The HD 3850 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the FireGL V7600. The difference is significant enough that the HD 3850 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the FireGL V7600.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe 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. The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, and mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, 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.Radeon HD 3850 AGP is a variant of the high-end Radeon HD 3850 based on the 55nm, second unified shader architecture, R600. Check its page to know more about its Core.
Compared to Radeon HD 3850, it features twice as much video memory and an AGP 8X Bus Interface. Benchmarks indicate the double sized frame buffer benefits this GPU largely and so its performance is up to 8% better than the reference Radeon HD 3850.
Today's modern games should run fluently at medium settings but with modest resolutions. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
