TAIPEI, TAIWAN, Nov. 26, 2002 – Silicon Integrated Systems Corp. (SiS), a leading supplier of core logic and graphics chipsets, today unveiled the latest generation of its Xabre graphics chipsets, the Xabre600. Built with 0.13-micron process technology, the Xabre600 not only inherits the superb features of Xabre400 to support 8X8 (AGP8X and DirectX8.1), but has become a super graphics engine with complete Pro 8X8 features delivered by a built-in hardware optimized VertexlizerÔ Engine. It is also the only chipset, among its class, to offer the high speed power of Duo300 with 300MHz clock rate for both engine and memory. Again, Xabre600 proves that it can meet the market demand for high performance display cards, as well as rewrite new standards and specifications for high-end products in mainstream markets.
“The Xabre600, built with 0.13-micron process technology, is the best evidence of the leading role played by SiS in graphics chipset research and development.” Chris Lin, Vice President, Multimedia Products Division pointed out. “Xabre series allows computer gamers to break through the bottleneck of computer gaming, by enabling the computer systems with the highest transfer rate and frequency, image resolution, system reliability and performance. Featuring both Pro 8X8 and Duo 300MHz, the Xabre600 has increased performance by at least 20% in the 3D Mark 2001 test, as compared to its predecessor, the Xabre400. Using the Xabre600 graphics card, those computer gamers who are particular about combating experience, speed, and image quality will be able to enjoy the unprecedented optimal speed and performance at a very competitive price tag.”
This superior product for the mainstream market will be officially available by the end of November 2002. In a series of product launch conferences in Taipei (Nov.26) and Beijing (Nov. 28), SiS invites a number of display card manufacturers such as Chaintech, C.P. Technology, DFI, ECS, and Triplex to witness the on-site demonstration of its display cards equipped with Xabre family graphics chipsets. The superb performance of Xabre series will be also showcased in combination with applications provided by software developers such as Microsoft and Autodesk. The DirectX 8.1 displays its quality image, superb speed and reliable performance while running the Age of Mythology game created by Microsoft, which has specialized in researching and developing 3D interface technology. By paring the Xabre graphics card with Autodesk’s professional 3D Modeling software test suite, the excellent performance of the Xabre OpenGL will exhibit live at the conference. The professional 3D performance of Xabre is demonstrated in full with on-line gaming program, War Craft III and Soldier of Fortune II.
