TBREAK heeft ECS's AG400 gereviewd,
Een kaart gebaseerd op de Xabre 400 chipset die zich richt op de budgetmarkt.
De ECS AG400 kost iets minder dan de GeForce 4 MX400 en presteerde in alle testen die ze uitvoerden beter dan de GF4 MX400. In de Serious Sam 2 test versloeg de ECS AG400 zelf de GeForce 4 Ti 4200 !
The Xabre has matured well- real well. When we initially looked at it four months ago, it left us with nothing but disappointment, however, we feel that the GPU has evolved into something that SiS can be proud of. The only thing currently lacking is the driver settings- there isn't much you can play around with. Hopefully SiS will continue to add more options, however, the important thing is that drivers are very stable and work good.

The ECS AG400 is priced between US$80-90 (Dirhams 300-325) which is probably a bit less than what you'd pay for a retail GF4 MX440 card and yet, it performs faster and supports more features than the MX. Doesnt take a genius to figure out what to get!
