Sapphire Radeon HD 2400 XT + HD 2600 XT

The Cards


With the packages out the way it's time to check out the cards. The HD 2400 XT is a very basic looking card with a passive heatsink that covers the majority of the card. If it wasn't for the little "Fueled by Sapphire" plate up the top left corner we wouldn't know who made the card.




The more powerful HD 2600 XT on the other hand uses an active cooling solution that still manages to take up quite a large area of the card. Apart from that it's all very standard looking.




Moving around the two cards we have our Crossfire connectors across the top of both cards. Unfortunately only the HD 2600 XT came with a bridge connector, so if you want to go down the dual HD 2400 XT route for some unknown reason you will have to buy a connector separately.



Finally moving around to the I/O side of things the HD 2400 XT comes with a single DVI connector which supports up to 2560 x 1600 and a VGA connector that sits alongside our TV-Out port.



The HD 2600 XT carries with it two DVI connectors which are both Dual-Link and we find between the two we have a TV-Out port in our Dual-Link DVI sandwich.
