Dell uses XGI's Volari XP5 in their new Inspiron 5160 notebook

Posted on Sunday, September 19 2004 @ 22:29:04 CEST by

The Inquirer reports that some of Dell's notebooks will feature graphics chips from XGI. In the past Dell had a long term relationship with Trident, which supplied hardware to Dell. Trident is now part of XGI and thus this new company has got an imporant deal.
The Dell Inspiron 5160 notebook can use one of three versions of graphic cores one of which is XGI and two of which are Nvidia's.

The XGI graphic module comes with the name of XP5 - it's AGP 4X and has 32MB of frame buffer. Nvidia at the same time offers the 32 and 64MB Geforce FX Go5200.

I see this as an important step for XGI but those guys must do much harder and need more then one Dell notebook deal to make revenues. You have to start somewhere right?
