AMD R610/630 renamed from X2x00 to HD 2x00 series, more details and rumors unveiled

While we already reported that the X2900 got a name change to the HD 2900 series, The Inquirer sought to find out what happened to the rest of the Radeon line-up. Here are the latest R6x0 rumors, along with their new names.
  • RV610LE will be called the HD 2400 Pro. This can support HD playback in 720P (1280x720) resolutions, and comes with up to 256MB of 64-bit DDR2 RAM clocked at 800MHz.
  • RV610PRO will be known as the HD 2400 XT. It should come with 128-bit GDDR3 RAM, and support full 1080P (1920x1080) HD playback.
  • RV630PRO will be known as the HD 2600 Pro. It is basically an RV610LE with a fancy memory controller, higher clock speeds, and the ability to play 1080P HD content.
  • RV630XT will be known as the HD 2600 XT. It is a higher-clocked version of the RV630PRO, with the ability to support higher-clocked and more memory.
All of these cards should come with a native HDMI port, can be ported to AGP, and have HD audio codecs.Source: The Inquirer

Still no prices yet!

Im interested in the HD 2600XT, assuming its better DX9 wise than my current X1950XT, but at the rummered price of $199 im sure it will be a great buy for a mid range card.

Wow, the mid range and low range cards look excellent. Clearly, ATI isnt just looking to hook the gamer sector.

I wouldn't figure actual sound, but probably hardware accelerated sound decoders.

Wait.. HDMI does sound, doesn't it?
