Radeon HD 2400/2600 Series Now Official

Finally sees light of day

| Video Cards News | Posted: Jun 29, 2007 1:08 am

AMD's first mention of their entry-level and mid-range Radeon HD 2400 and 2600 series graphics cards was back in mid May when the Radeon HD 2900 XT was officially launched. But since then it hasnt been quite clear as to when we'd actually see these cards hit the market.


Finally they have, though AMD indicate these wont hit stores until early July.


Making up the 2600 family is the 2600 XT (both GDDR3 and GDDR4 versions), and 2600 Pro. The 2400 family comprises both an XT and Pro model as well.


With the NDA now completely lifted a number of sites have posted up reviews of these cards to see if they offer good bang for your buck. You can check out all the coverage on them below :-

AMD's new Radeon HD 2600 Series has already been announced a while back but no cards were available. Today the benchmarking NDA lifted and we present you the review of the AMD Radeon HD 2600 XT. The card is based on the new RV630 GPU which has prominent features such as an integrated UVD decoder which helps with decoding high-definiton video by offloading almost all calculations to the GPU. Unlike the HD 2900 XT these calculations are not done in shaders but in a dedicated part of the GPU silicon which helps power consumption.
