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
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
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: Price will make the difference

The post here that notes the low performance of the 8500/8600 is dead on.
The high end of Nvidia's new series, the 8600GTS, is slower in the majority of benchmarks than the older x19xx series ATI cards as well as Nvidia's own 79xx series.
See here :
Note the 8600GTS, top of the line for Nvidia's new midrange models is soundly beaten in FEAR by the X1950Gt, 7900GS, X1950 Pro, 7950GT, X19000XT. The reason I use FEAR as an example is that it is one of the games it does best in.
There are some places where the 8600GTS does well, but keep in mind the price of the 8600GTS (note the S) - the cheapest one at newegg at this moment is $175 for a 256MB variant.
For that, you can buy a 7950GT 512MB that will - in most cases - smash the 8600GTS in current games.
