AMD begins shipping Radeon HD 2400 and 2600

AMD has said that it has begun shipping its ATI Radeon HD 2400 and ATI Radeon HD 2600 series graphics processors (GPUs) in volume to its add-in board (AIB) customers. Graphics cards based on these processors are expected to be available at online retailers within a few weeks from board customers including Asustek Computer, Club 3D, Diamond Multimedia, Gecube, Gigabyte Technology, HIS, Micro-Star International (MSI), Palit, PowerColor, Sapphire and VisionTek, said AMD.

Both GPUs feature AMD's UVD (Unified Video Decoder) technology. UVD is a hardware feature that offloads video decoding from the CPU to the GPU to help lower system power consumption. UVD is designed to be used in a range of video applications such as watching Blu-ray, HD DVD or standard definition movies, according to AMD
