Computex 07: PCIe power connector on the 2600


PowerColor had it's AGP card in the new Radeon HD family on display at it stands and there seems to be a crucial difference between the two cards, the 2600 Pro has an PCIe power connector.

The Radeon HD 2400 Pro has a standard 4-pin Molex connector, so no problem to get this one working with your current power supply in an AGP system.

This means that anyone with an older power supply needs to use an adaptor to get this card working in their system.
