Radeon HD 2600, 2400 launch due in two days
AMD has taken its sweet time getting Radeon HD 2600- and Radeon HD 2400-series graphics cards out the door. The cards were first announced in conjunction with the Radeon HD 2900 XT launch back in mid-May, and AMD told us they wouldn't hit stores until July 1. We learned earlier this month that the cards had shipped to board manufacturers, though, and DigiTimes now reports AMD has set a June 28 launch date for the Radeon HD 2600 XT, Radeon HD 2600 Pro, and Radeon HD 2400 Pro.
All three cards will have graphics chips based on 65nm process technology, and we already have a fairly good idea of what their specifications will look like. Unbeknownst to us, however, DigiTimes says a version of the Radeon HD 2600 XT with GDDR3 memory will be part of the lineup along with the GDDR4-based version we saw at Computex.
