Here are their settings: Later we will see whether this lag will tell upon real applications. Besides, the drivers are still buggy – in some games the artifacts are well noticeable. But for better promotion of the SIS Xabre it must have not just a comparable, but lower price. Maybe the optimization of the 3D Mark for the Xabre wasn’t complete? Beginners Guides Cases and Access. It all started about a year ago with the release of the SiS chipset for the Athlon and has simple grown from there.

Ubuntu has support for the sis driver already – just follow the advice earlier in this thread. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. Hardware gev two video overlays — SIS 0: For the fuller comparison characteristics of video cards of this and other classes address our 3Digest.

Sis Vga Xabre 200 a WHQL

Probably SIS tried to optimize the emulation, but the attempt failed. I’m a little surprised Ubuntu didn’t detect that when you installed maybe it did – if 001 can’t find VESA we’ll see. However that may be, but this is not a hardware support because it came with just new drivers, not with a new chipset. The second 8 in 8×8 stands for DirectX 8.

But this advantage of ATI doesn’t mean that they should go with the software emulation as well, as in this synthetic test the processor has nothing to do anymore, while in real applications it will have other tasks to cope with.

Consumed Power, Energy Consumption: Of course, it’s not the fault of the chips, but of xaabre PCB’s layout. Maybe, the processor supports pipeline programming but I doubt that such expensive technologies would be integrated in axbre budget solution. Can somebody help me?

Also as mentioned, there will probably need to be additional changes, but we’ll go one step at a time so we can xxbre problems. Finally, Xabre doesn’t have any 4 pipelines.

And now the DP3 relief: The dimensions are minimal – each triangle takes just one pixel. They implemented the software emulation of the vertex shader, made the driver handling better, brought in erv settings for the Xabre. Now i use vesa. There are only two.

SIS Xabre 64MB Video Card Review

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:. That card does not even seem 10 be supported by Medibuntu but you could try: Also, you can adjust operation in 3D gradually from quality to speed. Is it the same Xabre with just lifted up frequencies due to the new fabrication process or something new?


Besides, the drivers are still buggy – in some games the artifacts are well noticeable. There is also general information about the card: Unfortunately, the 3D Mark is not an open benchmark.

However, the memory overclocking is fairly disappointing because the 2. With the launch of the Xabre SIS announced new technologies which are integrated into the driver named Xminator II, but they are not the hardware features, nor they are peculiar only to the Xabre Well, the Xabre also had all those Xmart components including the Vertexlizer.

Test results Before we start examining 2D quality, I should say there are no complete techniques for objective 2D quality estimation because: But if you remember some time ago the new version of the 3D Mark brought some corrections, and the Xabre started to perform much better. It uses a complex shader which deals with both type-transformation and geometrical functions.

How funny the names are: In case of the software emulation the Radeon is far ahead.
