help on HD 2400 XT!

  • I just got my 531 system with an ATI HD 2400 XT but the specs don't match what I've seen on a lot of review sites. 
    Does anyone know if Dell supplies ATI cards with downgraded components?
    Catalyst reports
    Device ID    94C1
    Vendor       1002
    Subsystem ID 0D02
    Subsystem ID 1028
    Bios Version 010.065.000.004
    Bios Part No 113-B27602-112
    Bios Date    2007/10/09
    Memory Size  256 MB
    Memory Type  DDR2
    Core Clock   650 MHz
    Memory Clock 500 MHz
    I've read on lots of sites the following
                              PRO                XT
    Memory Type  DDR2        GDDR3        
    Core Clock   525 MHz     700 MHz
    Memory Clock 400 MHz     800 MHz

    Is Dell ripping me off?
    Not that I paid a lot for this low end card, but I do want it to play HD DVDs with its AVIVO and UVD functions.
  • ATI nor any other vendor specs the same.
    You have to compare apples to apples.

    EVGA,BFG and other Overclock parts.
    That doesnt mean that all will have the same spec
    with the same rating or that all prices will be the same.

    There is no basis for your remark about being ripped off.

  • I have to complete disagree with you.  ATI makes reference design boards for all chipset, that is a standard.  Manufactures have the freedom to change clock speeds and memory, but when the core clock and type of memory are worse than the reference design they should not call it an XT.
  • I have an Optiplex 755 which has that card running dual monitor mode.

    It doesnt use a 6 pin PCI-E power connection so its less than 75 watts for the card.

    Definitely not a screamer.

  • What exactly are you trying to point out?  The RV610 is the same chip used in both the XT and the Pro.  The only difference between the two card is clock speeds and type of memory.  All drivers downloaded directly from AMD identify this card as a 2400pro, not XT.  The card manufactured for Dell doesn't follow either the Pro or XT reference design, and I still believe its false adveriting to lable something and XT when it clearly does not have GDDR3 or the correct clock speeds for memory and core.  The manufacturer adding in the wrong Device ID just makes it worse.

  • I wouldn't trust Wikipedia for anything, but at any rate, (this will probably come off as harsh), but isn't this kind of worrying about nothing?  Any Radeon 2400 is extremly low end.  It seems to me it's a moot point what they call it.  It's okay for displaying the Windows' desktop, and that's about it.

  • I have to disagree with your about wikipedia, there are definately incorrect pages, but the vast majority are pretty spot on, especially with technical pages that have very easily verfired information.

     

    But I do agree with you that all 2400 card are pretty useless, and that this is arguing over somthing senseless.  I just wish Dell would have called the card an overclocked Pro rather XT.

  • The Devce ID PCIID=94C1 1002

    The ID came from My dell The Device ID Came from AMD

    94C1 is the 2400 XT
