Radeon HD 2400 Pro and XT In New Dell OptiPlex

Yesterday, Dell announced their new line of OptiPlex 755 commercial desktop systems and touted the machines as the “world’s most manageable, energy efficient commercial desktop ever.”  The press release on Dell’s website draws attention to the OptiPlex 755’s Gold EPEAT Rating and Energy Star 4.0 Compliance, and even takes a jab at Hewlett Packard, but what you may not have noticed is that Dell is now offering ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro and XT cards as an upgrade from the stock Intel IGP.  And it’s not just on the OptiPlex 755.  The new Radeons are available as options on the OptiPlex 740 and 745 as well.  This is a big design win for AMD.
