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.

RE: Top end not in my budget.

Im not upgrading my monitor any time soon so eye candy at my monitors native resolution means more than some ungodly resolution or freakish 300FPS. Video cards come and go but monitors generally last me 4 or more years.

I agree. If a Video Card can give me 60 FPS at 1280x1024 with all the eye candies on (4X AA, Shadows, etc...), it worth my money !

no game company in thier right mind releases a game that will only play on the top end hardware

that's not true...

these games was (and some still are!) bare playable with cards in the sub $200.00 range.
I hear someone say that "- I play FEAR at 15 FPS and it's NOT a problem to me!" but is really WEIRD ! The fact is that a FPS like FEAR or QUAKE running at 15 FPS is a pain in the ass! ;-)

My Athlon XP 2600+ & 7600GS runs Far Cry maxed out at 1680x1050, Quake 4 almost maxed out (not a 512mb card, so no ultra setting) at 1280x1024. Fear runs at 1024x768 with med-high settings.

Yes way, I have oblivion on my Radeon 9700pro @ 1280x800 @ medium quality settings and I score about 35-40 fps outdoors.

Oblivion ran fine with 30+fps on my older system as well as my high end system. Sure I couldn't turn on HDR or max out the effects but it was playable and still looked better then a lot of other games.
