In the above we see the HD 2400 XT video card and it’s quite a strange looking card. While prepping the photos for this article, more than once I did a double take after catching a glimpse of the thumbnail photo thinking that I had gotten a little carried away in photoshop.
The heatsink is tiny and doesn’t make much noise at all. There is no additional PCI-E power connectors required and the card runs nice and cool. Notice that there is a single dual link DVI port and a standard D-Sub/VGA
On the backside of the card we can see a pair of memory IC’s and the heatsink retention bracket. Personally I like that they have used a four anchor system as I’ve tweaked a few of the two-pin anchor heatsinks while swapping parts around and always worried about cooling problems with them.
The memory on our HD 2400 XT is supplied by Hynix. From their decoder we are able to figure out that it’s 256MB of 900MHz GDDR3. Current pricing puts this card right around $79.99 which is a pretty good deal for the DX 10 functionality and HD AVIVO support. Our sample came clocked at 700MHz core speed and 800MHz memory.
