ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT GDDR3 round-up
15 July 2007
Conclusion: As you would expect from graphics boards in the price range we're discussing here, the performance on offer isn't going to set the world on fire any time soon. However, if you're gaming on a budget and are looking to enter the DirectX 10 era, then provided you're not expecting to play the latest titles at high resolution and with all the graphical details cranked up to maximum, most of the boards we've examined here today offer a pretty playable level of performance at...
Summary: In our review we were able to compare the new Radeon HD 2600 XT to GeForce 8600 GT and to a vast range of new and old mid-range PCI Express video cards, as you could see on our previous pages.
With both GeForce 8600 GT and Radeon HD 2600 XT with GDDR4 memory having a suggested price of USD 150, they are clearly targeted to users that are looking for the best cost/benefit ratio possible, i.e.
Summary: AMD's HD 2600 XT is a solid card that feels quite mature and works rock stable. Performance is a bit less than what I expected, especially to the X1xxx products the speed difference is quite small. On the other hand you get several new features like DirectX 10 support and the wonderful UVD high-definition video decode acceleration. Unlike NVIDIA's GeForce 8 Series, AMD gives you the whole multimedia package which consists of HDMI + Audio + HDCP.
Pros: UVD for Highdef video acceleration, Quiet, Competitive price, Modest power consumption, DirectX 10 + Shader Model 4.0 Support, CrossFire capable
Cons: Not as fast as similar offerings from NVIDIA
Summary: As computers have moved out of the office and into many rooms of our homes, the diversity and requirements of a computer have changed dramatically. Although many people are still happy with an E-Machine, many others use the computer for a complete source of entertainment. The computer is quickly becoming the center hub for our entertainment and as hardware and software have improved in this aspect, the Home Theater PC (HTPC) is becoming a popular addition to most home...
Pros: DirectX 10 comes to mainstream ATI fans!, Doesn't require an additional power connector., Decent DX9 performance., Excellent HD Video decoding performance., Very quiet single-slot cooler.
Summary: Mit den ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT mit GDDR4 Speicher bieten die Hersteller Grafikkarten mit einem attraktiven Preis-Leistungsverhältnis an. Für etwa 130 Euro bekommt man eine recht gute Grafik-Performance, die bei Standard-Bildqualität bis zu einer Auflösung von 1600x1200 ausreichen dürfte. Auf Full-Scene Anti-Aliasing und anisotrope Filterung sollte man aber besser verzichten, dafür reicht die Leistungsfähigkeit in den meisten Fällen nicht aus.
Conclusion: Ok, a Radeon HD 2600 XT suporta HDMI com áudio digital diretamente no conector HDMI. Isto é sem dúvida uma vantagem em relação à GeForce 8600 GT se você for fanático por HDTV e vídeo de alta definição.
