Introduction



Powercolor is a brand of Tul corporation which has been in business for many many years. Being one of AMD's premier AIBs they have received a license to design and build their own Radeon HD 2400 and 2600 cards. Today we have on the testbench their Radeon HD 2400 Pro 256 MB which looks like it is a great choice for media PC systems because of its small form factor, integrated UVD HD Video decode acceleration and great price.

AMD's RV610 GPU is very similar to the RV630 in design and features, it's mainly the performance that differs to make this a lower cost part.
