PC Gamers will always find a way to justify buying the latest, greatest card on the market. ATI and nVidia know this, which is why they keep releasing cards on a weekly basis. ATI’s latest offerings include the Radeon 2400 HD and 2600 HD. Both cards will be available at fine retailers online and off.
Both GPUs feature AMD’s Unified Video Decoder technology, which lessens the load on your PC’s CPU and dumps the processes onto the GPU. HD movies and video will benefit the most from this, including Blu-ray and HD-DVD. Both cards will also be DirectX 10 compatible. No price has been set, but since these cards aren’t top-of-the-line, don’t expect to pay over $200.
