  • 64MB DDR SDRAM in 8 Hynix 4ns chips, 250 (500) MHz clock speed;
  • Peak fill rate in the multitexturing mode without optimizations is 1000 megapixels/sec and 2000 megatexels/sec;
  • Hardware TCL.

Just after the announcements of Matrox and 3Dlabs, we were presented a fast one from SiS - Xabre. It was another effort of a successful chipset company to expand its presense on the graphics market.

You can get more details about SIS Xabre400 from its basic review continued by Joytech Xabre 128Mb review.

Wasn't overclocked.

By the end of the month the product belongs to the $30-50 range; closest rival: GeForce4 MX440.

On June 10, 2003 the latest drivers version from SIS is 3.11.53 for Windows XP.

Windows XP

Even without our Xabre400 review related to GPU quality improvement, I can state that the latest drivers version is preferable.
