PowerColor HD 2400 Pro 256 MB Review

Have you got a gaming system built on a shoestring budget? Maybe you're building a new system and want the latest technology but without the financial bite. If you're an ATI fan, then the PowerColor HD 2400 Pro may be just what you're looking for. The newly released medium ranged cards, built on ATI’s R600 GPU technology, are the lower cost alternatives to the high end cards. The HD 2400 Pro incorporates most of the features of its higher end counterparts, except with more cost effective components. As one of PowerColor’s entry level boards, we’ll look into what kind of performance you can expect to see.

While I think that "blazing fast performance" is an almost comical overstatement, this card actually did hold its own given its price-point. $55 is very good for a new card with 256MB. It'd be a very realistic candidate for an HTPC, given the small profile, good amount of memory, and low price.

Good, honest review. I think that the fact that it has HDMI is awesome. If you can't spend a lot and want an HTPC, there you go.

Good review although considering its price point maybe including competition from nvidia (ie the 8500/8400 range) would have been better than including the HD2600/8600 cards.

Judging from a purley gameplay point of view this card is quite frankly useless even on very low resolutions however as an all round package for use in a HTPC it does offer quite alot of features for the price point.
