Advanced Micro Devices Inc. has announced the arrival of the ATI Radeon HD 2600 and ATI Radeon HD 2400 series, the mid-range and entry-level graphics processors in the ATI Radeon HD 2000 series.

The ATI Radeon HD 2600 and ATI Radeon HD 2400 GPUs support Windows Vista with DirectX 10 graphics and built-in multimedia functions for an immersive high-definition video experience on the PC.

"The ATI Radeon HD 2600 and ATI Radeon HD 2400 series drive high definition innovation to the mainstream with an incredible price and performance proposition," said Rick Bergman, senior VP, AMD Graphics Products Group. "With the launch of these new products, AMD is broadening the reach of The Ultimate Visual Experience by putting next-generation, DirectX 10 discrete graphics technology within reach for more users than ever before."

The ATI Radeon HD 2600 and ATI Radeon HD 2400 series deliver gaming performance and maximize the HD visual effects within Windows Vista and DirectX 10. The powerful second-generation unified shader architecture introduces the era of immersive HD gaming. Both series feature native ATI CrossFire technology, allowing for a wider variety of multi-GPU configurations.

The ATI Radeon HD 2600 series and ATI Radeon HD 2400 series provide powerful graphics performance for quick multitasking between applications with the Windows AeroTM 3D user interface. ATI Catalyst graphics management software is certified for Windows Vista and is designed for quick and easy setup of graphics, video and multiple displays.

Both series feature the Unified Video Decoder (UVD) for advanced hardware HD video processing and HDMI with built-in HD audio controller for big-screen entertainment. The GPUs employ ATI Avivo HD technology to deliver sharp images and vibrant color fidelity for Blu-ray and HD DVD content.

With support for Blu-ray discs and HD DVDs, CyberLink's PowerDVD Ultra, now offers support for UVD technology from AMD, ensuring enhanced video quality with low CPU utilization.

Using an energy-efficient 65nm process technology to reduce power consumption, certain ATI Radeon HD 2600 series and ATI Radeon HD 2400 series models are designed to be passively cooled for a quieter home theatre experience.
