    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.

    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?
