Radeon HD 2400 XT vs GeForce 8500 GT

Posted on Saturday, July 28 2007 @ 19:21:06 CEST by

ExtremeTech took a look at a low-end graphics card from ATI and NVIDIA:
One thing we haven't done yet is examine the very low end of the spectrum. Just last month we ran reviews of some cards in the $100-150 range, which is quite affordable compared with the $400–$600 top-end cards. Believe it or not, DirectX 10–capable graphics cards get cheaper. There are cards built for OEMs that cost perhaps $50, but those aren't going to be commonly found in retail channels. The entry-level products you're most likely to see are the Radeon HD 2400 XT from AMD/ATI, and the GeForce 8500 GT from Nvidia's partners.

Today we put those two cards on the workbench. The ATI-branded Radeon HD 2400 XT and the XFX-branded GeForce 8500 GT each cost around $80, and they represent a way to get DirectX 10 graphics for less than the price of two new PC games. But are they worthwhile purchases? Can such inexpensive graphics cards deliver a good game experience?
