Some fresh information about XGI plans: PCI Express, XG45 DX9.1 GPUs in March

We repeatedly posted news about plans of XGI Technology that as far back as last year announced the soon update of its GPU series and PCI Express support. In particular, XGI´s complete roadmap for 2004-2005, which we published early in November 2003, contained plans to replace company´s most powerful V8 Ultra and Volari V5 Ultra GPUs with DirectX 9.1-optimized XG45 and XG46 solutions. Exactly these XGI GPUs are the the most attractive now because their success (or failure) might considerably affect company´s advancement to the desktop graphics market.

Today our colleagues from Chinese GZeasy published some more precise information related to XGI´s closest roadmap. The first XG45 samples fully supporting DirectX 9.1, Pixel Shaders 3.0 and Vertex Shaders 3.0 are expected in March. Therefore the first graphics cards on these GPUs might arrive in July-August. This fresh information fully correlates with company´s earlier plans promising XG45 in H2 2004.

As for the PCI Express support that should be implemented into XG41 and XG42 DirectX 9.0 GPUs that will replace Volari V5 and V8, the company has to work harder on GPU performance and heat emission — Volari Duo V8 Ultra test results indicate rather low competitive ability from the angles of both prices and features.
