HD 2600 XT
We've waited a long time for AMD's ATI Radeon HD 2400 and 2600 graphics chips. Although they were launched in May alongside the HD 2900 XT - reviewed here - it's only now that these budget and mid-range parts have gone on sale.

Before we dive into our review of the PowerColor's HD 2600 XT with 256MB of GDDR3 memory and its HD 2400 XT, let's take a quick look at the features of the new chips. Both chips are manufactured using a 65nm process - called 65G+ - rather than the 80nm process used in the HD 2900. They're fully compliant with Microsoft's DirectX 10 and Shader Model 4. They all have two dual-link DVI connectors and may come packaged with an HDMI adaptor. The low power draw of the chips means that we can expect to see DirectX 10 AGP graphics cards that have no need for an additional power connector.
