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.

You must be one of those kids who were really upset when you didn't see your pretty little video card perform as well as you knew it would...

If you actually read some of the article you would see that he isn't basing his opinion solely on benchmarks,
Many people look at the specifications alone and make a pre-conceived notion about performance before even reading what the gameplay experience actually is. We have it in our heads that a 128-bit memory bus is slow and 32 streaming processors doesn’t sound like a lot when we are used to seeing 96 mentioned for the 8800 GTS and 128 for the 8800 GTX.

I'm still not convinced though, as I too was under the impression that the X1950 was still pretty competitive. Anyone have another comparison review that supports Kyle's conclusions?

I dont think you get it. Look at the retail price of the 8600GTS, and the current retail price of the X1950XT (not pro). I saw some for ~170 at newegg and they are a leap ahead of the pro. Why dont take a look at how those 2 stack up.

Comparisons should be about cards of the same price.
