Xbit Labs is reporting that XGI will release a family of native PCI Express graphics parts with Shader Model 3.0 support early next year. The product family will include a couple of desktop parts and one mobile product, but XGI won't pursue dual-GPU boards this time around.
Although products based on its desktop graphics chips are scarce in North America, XGI recently inked a notebook deal with Dell. The XGI Volari XP5 is now available as an option in Dell's Inspiron 5160 laptop as an alternative to NVIDIA's GeForce FX Go5200.
