What happened to this card?

First results showed that XGI had bid drviers problems, I can't find newer reviews... Maybe the newer drivers are better? And these cards can't be found anywhere to buy? What a mess it is!

Does anyone have infos about this?

This would have been great. And they conclude that the drivers still needs a lot of work.

I know it sucks, but this would have interesting to see if newer drivers makes them looks better. But I doubt it, because if newer drivers were effectively better, THG and others would probably revisit their reviews.

I hpe XGI will be able to ge a new GPU on the market that will compare well to the competition. 3 majors in the 3d-GPU market would not be too much! This would help competion and probably would push price down a bit.

I think what heppened is the 6800 and X800...

There's just so much market anticipation about these cards, no-one cares about the Volari anymore. Besides that, most people (myself included) are convinced that it's complete crap... I don't think a driver can be made that would gve it decent IQ and speed.

The DeltaChrome has a bit more potential IMO, not in the speed game, but in the features/price angle.

It uses like 3 watts of power...

And it would be a lot better than the standard POS S3 twister they put in cheap laptops.

A long long time ago, but I can still remember, how that music used to make me smile... <A HREF="http://www.nexus.hu/zonix/DIGGER.MID" target="_new"><b><font color=blue>Digger rulz</font color=blue></b></A>
