We are now witnessing how two processors are being destroyed: You can find more comparative characteristics of video cards of this and other classes in our 3Digest. This is huge point to consider because the Xabre ‘s main competition is still only just DX 7 compatible. You’ll see SiS chipsets powering all manner of PCs from well-known system integrators in both desktop and mobile form. We used again a modified example of the MFCPixelShader having measured performance of the cards in high resolution in implementation of 5 shaders different in complexity, for bilinear-filtered textures:.

Vertex shader unit performance This test allows determining the maximum performance of the vertex shader unit.
Nothing special – they just glorify the AGP 8x bus which doesn’t have much to offer even for top models, however, it makes sense to use it for a 64MB card to accelerate texture transfer. The memory works at this frequency. The Z buffer is disabled and HSR can’t affect the results: Click to find out more.
Now look at the more complex benchmark – Advanced Pixel Shader. If the prices are equal xabfe Xabre will lose. The Xabre got this support codenamed Vertexlizer.
The xxabre are given only for 3 rendering methods – model optimized for the optimal output speed with the size of the internal vertex cache on the chip accounted for – Optimized, Unoptimized original model, and Strip – unoptimized model displayed in the form of one Triangle Strip: Is it the same Xabre with just lifted up frequencies due to the new fabrication process or something new? However, the overclocking of the card in question shows that operation at such frequencies is possible.
Here is the 3D Wizard utility with some control panels.
Transcend Xabre 400 64MB Graphics Card Review @ TechMods
But till recently all solutions based on the SIS 3D chips had inferior quality. Performance of Pixel Shader 1. It must be noted that the results of this test are unachievable for real applications where triangles are much greater, and textures and lighting are used. Under the heatsink is the chip itself: Video 3Digests Video cards: And now one more new version – and the new SIS card has its scores much worse. But while the former must leave the market as it is going to be replaced with the RADEONthe latter won’t give up easily.
As for the tested samples, together with the ViewSonic P monitor and BNC Bargo cable the cards showed excellent quality at the following resolutions and frequencies: The memory works at MHz.
Besides, the drivers are still buggy – in some games the artifacts are well noticeable. After installation of the drivers you will see below an icon for the control functions. But in new games which involve new technologies based on shaders EMBM and pixel and vertex shadersthe Xabre falls behind. The Xabre is already as transparent as glass.
Its PCB is shorter and the elemental base is a little different. Its video cards are always sky-blue and based on the Joytech’s own design.

For the fuller comparison characteristics of video cards of this and other classes address our 3Digest. And when the TurboMode is disabled, the performance drops by a great margin.
Nevertheless, on the whole the Xabre performs well. Test system and drivers Testbed: In general, the Radeon runs slower, 40 faster compared to the previous Xabre
