Hd2600 pro Vs hd4550 Tags: Graphics Cards Benchmark Graphics Product Last response: October 19, 2010 4:15 PM in Graphics & Displays Share dafunklull October 10, 2010 1:08:20 PM a simple benchmark of unigines heaven,tropics demos would tell the tale of which is better. but id like to throw out the question anyway. id like to keep a friend of mine afloat with a graphics solution ample enough to play some games at 800X600. the 4550s passively cooled but has 512ddr3 the 2600 has 256 of ddr2. but has a lil fan heatsink on it. 4550 has 80 stream processors 2600 has 120 stream processors both are dx10 both are pciex16 4550 is 64bit 55nm 2600 is 128bit 65nm personally i think the 2600 would be better for the lite gaming the prospective client is looking for I think it handles better despite its 256mbs of ddr2 memory. i'll do the side by side benchmark comparison some day. the 2600s not all that bad at folding@home offering up +/-400ppd 2600pro has replaced a 2400xt i had been using for a secondary background folding gpu 2400's are hybrid crossfire compatable but its gains were very minimal. its no so much an issue but a pondering of gains from hd4550 or 2600pro. 2600pro was a random good find for 40$ flat brand new in box random old stock. yay cheapness!
