The second 8 in 8×8 stands for DirectX 8. As a result, there is no hardware support for processing of vertex shaders. Since SiS’s drivers don’t include any texture sliders, we had to hack our way through the registry to access a setting X-bit Labs found in their Xabre review called TexTurbo. Views Read Edit View history. Hey guys, go vote! Some of these cards are price-competitive with products based on the Xabre , while others will show just what kind of performance gains to expect if you’re willing to spend a little more. But what really needs to be considered when exploring a solution?

The problem of such a weak support of pixel shaders probably results xwbre errors in the chip or drivers. Here is a list of OpenGL 1.

Review: SiS Xabre – Graphics –

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. However, the Linux kernel includes a working third party driver that, while not supporting 3D gaming, makes the cards usable under Linux. Five things you should look for in choosing a Testing provider Choosing a Testing Partner can be complex.


Conclusion Drivers, drivers, drivers DirectX doesn’t have any facility for emulating pixel shaders they 4000 be emulated via multi-pass rendering, but DX8 doesn’t break down pixel shader si into multiple passes, probably for performance reasons. Vertical refresh sync vsync was disabled for all tests.

Obviously, the pixel shaders are realized quite “cheaply”, which results in their low performance. The SIS coprocessor provides multimonitor support.

Overclocking It’s possible to overclock only with the PowerStrip the Triplex’s overclocker is still too raw.

We know this because we nicked both the links from David Ross’ Hexus web site.

SIS Xabre 400 reviewed

SiS’s chip powers secondary displays. Finally, with DirectX 8 games starting to come out this means that Xabre based videocards can start to flex their muscles. So bearing that in mind and bearing in xabe that target market is huge, lets see what SiS have come up with to capture their little piece of it.


Multisampling has the same Jeff Kampman This is clearly a yield-maximizing move for 7 nm. This is an old archive page of HWZ prior to revamp. Undoubtedly, the new family can’t boast of perfect architecture or performance.

SiS [4] [18].

By Xabrd Worobyew and Alexander Medvedev. The picture below shows that the PCB is really covered with silver: Onto the card itself!

I hope SIS programmers will hear it and eliminate the errors.

Intel Pentium 4 2. Download now to learn more. However, DX8 does have a software vertex shader implementation, so cards without vertex shaders can lean on the CPU for vertex shader handling.

This is quite rational, as vertex shaders can be emulated by almost any modern processor, unlike pixel shaders.

The complete characteristics of video cards of this and other classes can be found in our 3Digest. There is a hitch, however.
