ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 XT

This is a DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI and direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphic card for laptops. It is a higher clocked version of the HD 2600/2700 It appeared for the first time in the desktop replacement laptop HP Pavillion HDX 20" and showed good benchmarks (accompanied by Intel T7700 Core 2 Duo processor). The performance lies a bit over the 9500M GS middle class graphics card. Modern DirectX 10 games are playable but not with highest details.

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 XT 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.

Compared to the Deskto HD 2600 XT the Mobility version is slower clocked and therefore a bit slower.
