ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600

This is a DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI and direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS graphic card for laptops. This would mean that the card is able to represent all modern games in medium resolutions and without Antialiasing without motion interruptions.

Due to the Avivo HD videoengine  the Chip accelerates HD Video like HD DVD, Blu-ray (Video Decoder for H.264/AVC, VC-1, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4/DivX Video Codecs). Furthermore PowerPlay 7.0 brings longer battery runtimes. Furthermore, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 is certified for Windows Vista (for the Aero user interface).

Technically, the chip owns 120 stream processors which are able to manage vertex-, geometric or pixelshader operations. Therefore DirectX 10.0 and Shader Model 4.0 are supported. To be mentioned is also the 256 bit wide ringbus.

In games the HD 2600 positions itselft between GeForce 8600M GS and GT. Crysis and World in Conflict are only in low details fluently playable.
