PackagingWe did not receive a final packaging with our sample card. Expect the usual amount of accessories, an HDMI adapter should be included as well.
The Radeon HD 2600 XT is a regular sized card which uses a one slot cooling solution.
Nothing important on the back of the card. You can see four empty spots for BGA memory, which would allow building an 1 GB version which is coming soon.
Please note that the card does not need an additional 6-pin power supply. It is powered by the PCI-Express bus only.
The HD 2600 XT has two dual link capable DVI outputs, so you can connect up to two widescreen high-res LCDs, for example with 2560x1600 each. In case you need an analog output, you can connect DVI adapter to any port to use your older CRT. It is also possible to connect up to two HDMI adapters for HDMI+Audio+HDCP output. Yes, HDCP works on both outputs at the same time.
