HD 2600 xt

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been reading some forums and reviews about ATI's new card the HD 2600 xt. It looks like the card is going to rock, and because I still have the old school agp slot I am very interested in this card. I am just wondering what I need to know about this card before I buy it at the release, or should I hold off for a bit.
-Is it going to kill the x1950pro agp?
-What is the price range of the card?
-What is the ultimate edition of the card?
-Any other info I need to know

Just search in the ATI graphics section, all of your questions have been answered about 10 times each.

Personally I think the 2900s are going to be dominant in time!

It seems to be a bit under the 8600GT from nVidia, but the 256MB version should sell at around 100$ (PCIe anyway...)

It is much lower performer then the x1950pro, but with the much lower price, Dx10 support, HD hardware decoding and maybe OCability it should go for different kind of users.

If you like out of the box great VID cards, maybe the x1950pro is better for you, if you OC a bit maybe the HD2600XT.

Check out ati tool. great for overclocking too

the 2600 will not be a high end gaming card. if you want that go for the x1950. the 2600 will be better than your x1600, but no beast of a midrange card. I think i'll end up getting one tho because i'm turning my sig box into a pvr/media server and the on card hd processing will be amazing.

ATI's Catalyst Control Panel should so you your clock speeds in the overdrive tab. Temps should be reported in there too.
