Two weeks ago we looked at the Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB from Sapphire Technology and in preparation for the new ATI/AMD Linux display driver coming soon, today we are previewing the ASUS EAH2600PRO 256MB graphics card. This PCI Express graphics card has HDMI output support with HDCP compliance, OpenGL 2.0 support, and its core runs at 600MHz with a 1000MHz memory clock. Distinguishing this graphics card from the reference ATI Radeon HD 2600PRO is claims that this ASUS cooling solution is 20 degrees Celsius cooler than the reference model.

· ATI Radeon HD 2600PRO 256MB
· HDMI Output Support
· HDCP Compliant
· ASUS Splendid
· ASUS Video Security Online
· ASUS Gamer OSD
· OpenGL 2.0 Support
· ATI Avivo HD Technology

Unlike the Sapphire HD 2900XT 512MB that was packaged between several centimeters of foam, the ASUS EAH2600PRO was set inside a molded cardboard template. Our graphics card sample had arrived safely and we see no problems with its packaging seeing as this graphics card costs a quarter of what the HD 2900XT does and that we have had no problems with this type of packaging in the past. Separated from the graphics card was the ASUS manual, software CDs, DVI to VGA dongle, and video adapter. No DVI to HDMI adapter was included.
