Announced in mid-September, the XGI Volari graphics processors are the third family of actual chips to support DirectX 9.0 capabilities available in the market. XGI currently offers two graphics processors with identical feature-set, but different performance – the Volari V5 and the Volari V8. The fundamental difference between the former and the latter is the number of rendering pipelines – 4 and 8 for the V5 and V8 respectively. The XGI Volari V5 and V8 have equal number of Vertex Shader pipelines – 2 per chip. However, the Volari V8 also packs 4 Pixel Shader pipelines, while the V5 only boasts with 2 of them.
