XGI expects to start mass production of its first native PCI Express graphics chips for the entry to middle-level desktop market early next year. First samples of this chip, the XG47, will be available somewhere in November.

A PCI Express graphics chip for notebooks, called XP10, will be available at the same time as the XG47.
In addition, XGI plans to start sampling a native PCI Express graphics chip, the XG45, for the middle to high-end desktop VGA market, in December, with volume production scheduled for the first quarter of next year, Shyi stated.

XGI has just completed a capital expansion project, with the goal of ramping its PCI Express graphics chips in 2005 for an enhanced capability that will allow XGI to compete head-to-head with its market rivals, Shyi asserted.
Specifications for these three chips are not yet available.
