We have already reviewed new Radeon HD graphics architecture before, but at that time we only took a closer look at the top Radeon HD 2900 XT model, while more mainstream solutions didn’t get covered because they were scheduled to start selling a little later. Finally, mass Radeon HD saw the light of day and today we are going to check out one of them: Radeon HD 2600 XT.
The Radeon HD 2600 XT loses to the GeForce 8600 GTS just as it did in the previous tests, except for Call of Juarez. And like in Call of Juarez neither card can ensure comfortable gaming conditions at 1280x1024 if you select the highest level of detail.
You can try to achieve an acceptable speed by disabling FSAA, lowering the level of detail or switching into a lower resolution, but the game visuals will suffer as a consequence. If you don’t want this kind of compromise, you have to buy a more advanced graphics card. The same is true for the GeForce 8600 GT which performs even slower than the Radeon HD 2600 XT.
