SiS buys Trident graphics
DigiTimes is reporting that SiS's new graphics company, Xabre Graphic Inc, has bought Trident's graphics division. Few details are available on the deal at this time, but it looks like SiS will position its Xabre line to satisfy mid-range and high-end desktop markets with Trident's technology being saved for notebooks.
Given its acquisition and the fact that SiS already has the Xabre graphics chip to satisfy desktop customers, it seems unlikely that Trident's XP4 graphics chip will ever be released in the same market. Trident's XP4 technology could, however, makes it way into notebook graphics chips. Long live Trident?
