Radeon X2600 HDMI Audio

AMD's recently acquired ATI will be the first video card maker to use its HDMI output for audio, a presentation by the company at CeBIT has revealed. The RV600, likely to become the Radeon X2600 on its release, will include its own HD audio controller. The addition will let AMD cards used in home theaters connect both video and audio to an HDTV through a single HDMI cable, rather than require a separate cable for the audio feed. Such an addition also means that the audio stream will also be guaranteed to work with protect movies such as some Blu-Ray and HD DVD clips, AMD says.

A formal release timeframe for cards using the X2600 chip and the previously leaked X2800 hasn't been announced, but is expected by April or May. [via Beyond3D]
