AMD's ATI Radeon HD 2600 features 120 stream processors

AMD’s next-generation graphics products are right around the corner. The next generation ATI Radeon HD 2000-series includes a top to bottom DirectX 10 lineup consisting of the HD2900, HD2600 and HD2400-series. Although DailyTech unveiled benchmarks of AMD’s upcoming ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT last week, details of the mainstream and value HD 2600 and HD2400-series have remained scarce.

AMD’s next-generation ATI Radeon HD 2600, based on the RV630 core, features 120 stream processing units with three SIMDs and two texture units. There will be two ATI Radeon HD 2600 GPUs: a Pro and XT model with different clock speeds and memory requirements.

AMD and add-in board partners will offer a variety of ATI Radeon HD 2600-based graphics cards. The different models include variations with GDDR4, GDDR3 and DDR2 memory in 512MB or 256MB configurations with or without video input and output capabilities.

Catering towards value users is the ATI Radeon HD 2400 with its 40 stream processors. Two SIMDs and one texture unit join the 40 stream processors. AMD plans to offer the ATI Radeon HD 2400 in Pro and LE models with varying configurations. ATI Radeon HD 2400-based graphics cards will have 256MB or 128MB of video memory. Add-in board manufacturers are free to set the output configuration, including VGA, dual-link DVI, video input/output, HDMI and DMS-59 outputs on ATI Radeon HD 2400-based graphics cards.

1) Vista adoption rate has been relatively high.

2) Halo 2 isn't DX10 anyway. And Gears of War isn't even announced for PC yet.

1) Vista's adoption rate has actually been very slow and problematic. Most places (Dell, HP, IBM) have forced the hands at Microsoft and have been re-selling XP because of the lack of driver support. It wont be until service pack 1 in august/sept that Vista starts moving forward.

2) Microsoft has said Halo 2 will be a DX10 title but it was such a lousy game for the X-Box its not like DX10 owners are getting a treat with it.

Gears of war would be a much more worthy title but we all know this isnt going to happen.

It's a DX9 title, just Vista mandatory.
