    he guys.....what's this card supposed to be???
    IMO a major JOKE.....nothing else.....i'm just sad how many companies appear with a product sucking major horse cock...
    i know normally new companies don't have all the money to produce kickass things....but if you can't : don't do so...just my opinion
    (i think XGI is a company belonging to someone big...who was it?...can't remember....just think they should have the money)
    i also think drivers can't fix the problem since there was virtually no performance increase in their new drivers...
     
  3. So it turned out to be hardware instead of the drivers that was causing the problems? bummer! XGI is dead before it even hits the water!!! [​IMG]

    XGI came from the SiS/Xabre team. Really wanted for it to be good. But it seems its uber cr@p. Can't do a decent framerate without using texture *lowering technics.

    since that seems to be usual these times everybody does it...and since you can fool the masses with this they don't care....(actually i'm not talking about XGI directly...well..just in general)

    i think they forgot some instructions (or wateva you call it :D) in the chip, which make the card a dumb-as$.

    you think they didnt do the standard-procedure?

    It,in my opinion doesent seem right...think about it.I multi million dollar invstment with low performance levels?Im sure there are going to be driver bugs as we have seen with the previous benchmark comparision.But to have a hardware defect doesent seem correct.

    Btw,where did you guys hear of a hardware problem?I havent seen or heard of such things anywhere.Thanks,I would like to know.

    yeah just my opinion too.....why try to create something like "we gotta create something exclusive"....they're pretty new in business (yeah...xabre...) and 2 rediculous tries to produce a good card....just failed

    wait...maybe they got some 64 processor gfx card they release without telling anyone to shock everyone with their enormous perfor....wait....size of their cards....looool

    God,that article must of been pretty embarasing to XGI.Afterall,they where spending more time saying they can compete with the ringleaders(Geforce,Radeon)instead of making sure their product was even close to the competition before so.....I hope it is just a driver bug.Its possible,but likely not.

    LOL@64 bit.....yeah seems farfetched.....would be cool though!!!What they should have done is built a watercooled GPU that has universal hookups and clock speeds of 800 on the core and 1600 on the memory!!:D I would buy one then!

    if this would be a driver bug...man...some company that needs money wouldn't just wait till someone finds it

    they would have teams sittig there reconstructing drivers and what not...looking for the bug everywhere....at least they should

    I finally got round to reading the article on xbitlabs, and I can't believe the difference between cheats and normal quality for games like Splinter cell, I mean a 4 fold drop in frame rates is taking the piss...

    Even if this card happens to be 10 times better than my old SiS video chipset (which i doubt) its still gonna suck... bad...

    read it and thr memory bus is only 128 bit? I expected 256. Also it only supports 2x/4x AA? Ati and Nvidia supports all the way up to 8x. It'll be a long way before it catches up to Ati or nVidia...i think...The card looks pretty cool though.
