Chaintech graphics card roadmap
We got to know the provisional graphics card roadmap of Chaintech for the closest months.
NVIDIA remains the largest graphics card partner of Chaintech, so the solutions on its GPUs are and will be present in all market segments.
For "enthusiasts" Chaintech prepares GeForceFX 5800-based product with 500/500 (1000) MHz (DDRII) clock, scheduled to Q1 2003. For the same market the company will release the GX81 Special Edition (GeForce4 Ti4800SE, i.e., Ti4400 with AGP 8x, 275/275 MHz, 128 MB DDR, VIVO, DVI) and GX80 (GeForce4 Ti4800-8X, AGP 8õ, 300/325MHz, 128Mb DDR, optional VIVO and DVI).
For the high-performance solution market the company will announce: GX21-S Special Edition (128Mb DDR, VIVO, DVI) and GX20 (64/128Mb DDR, optional VIVO and DVI) AGP 8õ solutions on GeForce4 Ti4200-8X (250/256, 250 MHz) as well as AGP 8õ variations of G481 (64Mb DDR, VIVO, DVI), G480 (64Mb DDR, VIVO, DVI ) and LA-G482 (64Mb 64-bit DDR, TV-out) on GeForce 4 MX440-8X (275/256MHz).
The mainstream will see the GeForce 4 MX440/ SE-based cards (270/200MHz), as Chaintech believes GeForce 2 MX400 and TNT2 M64 solutions are still in demand in this market.
Besides, Chaintech will release the SiS Xabre-based solutions: Xabre600 will be featured in the recently announced S460 AGP 8õ (64/128Mb 128-bit DDR, 300/300MHz, optional DVI and TV-out). Xabre400 and Xabre200 cards will be produced as well.
It’s also interesting that the roadmap now includes the Trident XP4-based card (Trident XP4 T2-based, I guess, with 230/230MHz clock). TX40 will feature 64Mb 128-bit DDR, optional DVI-I and TV-out.
