Xabre GPU a 2x4-pipe design?

Digit-Life has an interesting review of SiS's Xabre 600 graphics card that provides some compelling evidence for the chip being a 2x4-pipe architecture. Since its launch, SiS has maintained that the Xabre is a 4x2-pipe design, but the card's single-texture performance has never jived with those claims. Now, with Digit-Life's tests showing the card coming the closest to its theoretical peak fill rate when four textures are being used, it looks like maybe SiS got its 4s and 2s backwards.
