The SIS coprocessor provides multimonitor support. Buying a low budget card is always a bit of a gamle. No cables are included in the package at all but at least the appropriate converters are there. The version included here is limited to two themes: SiS is very hot at the moment and seems to be very much on the ball in terms of producing chipsets. Now let’s turn to the cooling device. It’s possible to interchange receivers monitors , which is an advantage; No any 3D graphics settings, which is a bad drawback, and the tests will prove it.

Amongst the nicer stuff we have voltage and temperature monitoring. I haven’t since and never again will buy an OEM system! Greater AGP bandwidth will theoretically let Xabre pull more data over the AGP bus, but what kind of impact this will have on performance is unclear.

SiS would have been wise to include a software vertex shader in its driver software, so Xabre could expose both pixel and vertex shader capabilities to applications.

A very nice introduction to Inno3D for me in other words. Drivers, 5 in 1 “Lite” Game CD. GunMetal which is one of the first games developed using nVidias Cg and Big Mutha Truckers which is a pretty 40 racing title.

ATI vs. nVidia vs SiS? [Archive] – Overclockers Forums

You can still look at gaindard number of subsampels and the edges without this being an unfair comparison. Even if the cards are not top Q, Nvidia and the rest will still have to duke it out to be the supreme ruler of graphics As you might remember, Triplex Corporation was founded in Maybe with a few more competitors in the mix a few more of us will be able to own a high end video card as a result.


WinDVD ggainward Estimated price: This will surely keep you entertained for a few hours. Worst of all, it was integrated and could not be disabled!!!! I say this because two of the boards today are clocked ginward than their counterparts. On the other hand the manages to push back those mipmap a little bit further back in the scene.

In fact Sapphire is the only manufacturer to offer ViVo in this zabre. Hey, I am always open to new technology. Hem Test Grafikkort 8x Budget Shootout. It ruined my first computer. Note that according to Triplex, this layer reduces temperature of the card to degrees Celsius. We begin by having a look at the texture filtering quality of these boards when using trilinear filtering:.

If applications don’t get that right, they may either turn off shader-specific features or fail to run at all. The golden orb-like fan looks pretty sweet though.

However, it’s impossible to do this thing with the WinDVD because the player knows well the border between the monitors and you will see just a black window instead of a movie. I had a buddy with one of thier cards and his fps were pretty sorry, even though it looked good. My friend also has a SiS in a computer his mom bought him. Siluro DVD 4 Estimated price: But then again, the boards are dirt cheap and do offer, as mentioned, ok performance in older titles.


This particular Xabre is a low-cost, fully-featured graphics controller that could very well make a name for itself. Siluro DVD Estimated price: I tried shutting down my harddrives and turning off the other fans in my rig and I can assure you that it is impossible to hear any noise at all from this fan. This is quite rational, as vertex shaders can be emulated by almost any modern processor, unlike pixel shaders.

Below is a summary table of key technical characteristics of the tested chips and cards: The demos on the CD are the same as for their FX The settings are quite scarce and they are connected mainly with information on the card and dualhead support: Card vendors are xare running with the ball, publishing dabre scores that naturally due to that benchmark’s reliance on DirectX for certain tests show the Xabre whipping the GeForce4 MX.
