This chip is presented by Gigabyte Xabre400 64MB DDR, AGP card.
The card was overclocked to Xabre 600 (275/550 MHz).
Just after the announcements of Matrox and 3Dlabs, we were presented a fast one from SiS - Xabre. It's another effort of a successful chipset company to expand its presense on the graphics market.
The company plans to release the folowing line based on Xabre GPU:
The most powerful solution of this line is currently available:
Of course, the new SiS family doesn't pretend to heights and records of performance and architecture. But it proves the noticeable breakthrough comparing to previous products and features a considerable architecture advancement, uniavailable for all this-level rivals - pixel shaders hardware support. This alone might become a nice reason to praise SiS that stands alive on its own place, shaked by brand wars. Three factors are the most important in this sector: minimal price, good price/performance ratio, easy installation and working with.
You can get more details about SIS Xabre400 from its basic review, and from its logical continuation - Joytech Xabre 128MB review.
On the 10th of September 2002 the latest drivers from SIS are 3.05, 3.05.50.
Even without our Xabre400 article about its quality improvement, I can state that the latest drivers version is preferable.
You can compare screenshots taken on this card with reference ones taken on NVIDIA GeForce3. As we've already said a lot in the mentioned review about Xabre's 3D graphics, we won't repeat it here.
