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. Quality in other tests and games won’t be examined today because soon we will publish next 3Digest with a lot of screenshots from many games and comments on quality of the Xabre. This feature should improve the quality of incoming video streams. Comanche 4 Page Considering that a vertex shader’s functions can be emulated by the CPU, this isn’t much of an issue – especially considering the card’s projected price.

SiS’s Xabre 400 graphics processor

This is quite rational, as vertex sjs can be emulated by almost any modern processor, unlike pixel shaders. In all other respects, the card works well. Note that according to Triplex, this layer reduces temperature of the card to degrees Celsius.

Gigabyte Z Designare offers pros a bevy of connectivity options. Xabre doesn’t have any technologies for saving memory bandwidth. The problem of such a weak support of pixel shaders probably results from errors in the chip or drivers.

I hope SIS programmers will hear it and eliminate the errors. The graphics mustn’t be blurred or resemble Voodoo 1 and 64×64 textures. Jedi Knight II Page About us Privacy sus Mailing list Mobile. Note that there are no 3D settings in the SIS software! SiS kept Xabre’s transistor count low by leaving out vertex shaders. But I wonder why they used such fast memory for MHz?

But let’s check the quality Game4 Now it’s clear that the Xabre shows moderate results in complex tasks which use shaders, contain a lot of effects and very complex scenes. Subscribe to our newsletter.

Jeff Kampman This is clearly a yield-maximizing move for 7 nm. The complete characteristics of video cards of this and other classes can be found in our 3Digest. A driver-level vertex shader would also present opportunities for tweaking, extensive SIMD support, and the like. However, DX8 does have a software vertex shader implementation, so cards without vertex shaders can lean on the CPU for vertex shader handling.

Quality in sie tests and games won’t be examined today because soon we will publish next 3Digest with a xabrw of screenshots from many games and comments on quality of the Xabre. Here, as you now, there are siw important factors: Vertex Shaders The software emulation of shaders is not bad, as usual. Today’s games don’t lay down that many textures per pass, but future titles using more complex shader programs will.

At x they score the same results although the MX doesn’t support pixel shaders and doesn’t have Game4 results.

It makes no sense to cool down chips only from the right side. High Polygon Count Page Conclusion Drivers, drivers, drivers By Andrew Worobyew and Alexander Medvedev.

The Latest On Xxabre Hardware. Dabre every other graphics chip in its class, Xabre has a bit memory bus, which means there should be a decent amount of memory bandwidth with DDR SDRAM and reasonable memory clock speeds. It provides two advantages: Test system and drivers The card ships with SIS drivers 3.

The settings are quite scarce and they are connected mainly with information on the card and dualhead support: 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.
