Dave says XGI is chastened by its experience with the poorly received Volari V8 Duo cards aimed at gamers, and the company will be taking a more careful approach going forward. XGI continues to make intriguing architectural choices, too:
According to the specifications we’ve seen the composition of the chip is a little interesting with two pixel pipelines each with 8 texel samples (2 texture samplers), 4 Pixel Shaders and 8 depth/stencil outputs.I suppose it could work well. Right?
Dave reports that both XGI and S3 are preparing mobile versions of their products based on NVIDIA's MXM spec, as well.
