Powercolor Radeon HD 2400 XT Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
By now, most people know that the HD 2400 series should not be considered a gaming card. However, this doesnt render it useless, because it remains an impressive piece of budget hardware. Featuring full support for AVIVO HD, which is hardware-based high definition video processing, this is an ideal graphics solution for a home theater PC. MadShrimps has just posted a review of the Powercolor Radeon HD 2400 XT.
Heres what they had to say:
Using resolutions up to 1024x768 made most of the games playable, though don't forget that I also had to lower the in-game image quality settings here and there. Older games like Battlefield 2 were very enjoyable, though with gems like "TES: Oblivion" you surely stress this video card. For the newest games, you might want to stick to 800x600, as anything higher will be a slide-show on the HD 2400 XT.
I really liked this review. The voltage modification section was fascinating! Its encouraging to see at least one site do something unconventional and exciting. Now as mentioned previously, the HD 2400 XT wont impress you with its performance. However, in between movies, it will cheaply provide an acceptable gaming experience on a HTPC. If you want better gaming performance, the HD 2600 PRO can be found for $10-20 USD, and it is definitely worth the extra money.
