XGI ships 2D chip , the Volari Z7

Posted on Tuesday, October 12 2004 @ 22:57:56 CEST by

XGI has announced a new 2D chip, the XGI Volari Z7 graphics processor. It is positioned to serve specialized markets, but not in typical computers that are shipped in volume.

With its flexible design the Volari Z7 is aimed at servers, thin clients and other specialized markets. According to XGI this card is based on their notebook GPU advancements; the Z7 has a low power consumption, low thermal requirements and a high stability.
Volari Z7 is a tailor made GPU for the server, thin client, and other specialized markets; the flexible design along with many product advantages allows XGI to fulfill its diverse product line. The Volari Z7 does not support any 3D capabilities, such as Direct3D, just like graphics cards like ATI RADEON 7000.

“Volari Z7 is unique because it is tailor-made for a specialized market and flexible to support DDR/DDR2/GDDR3. This design’s elasticity allows better accommodations to our client’s needs and extends their product life cycles. Furthermore, we continue our commitment to the full system test and the very best software support.” said Po-Han Lin, Senior Product Marketing Manager of XGI.

Volari Z7 supports PCI bus with extra stability, it also supports DDR/DDR2/GDDR3, 8-128MB of RAM with 16/32 bit bus. XGI packs the Volari V7 into a form-factor that simplifies the design of graphics cards.

Volari Z7 supports up to 1600x1200 display resolution and fully support Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2003 Server, Windows 2003 Server EM64T, RHEL 3.0, RHEL 3.0 EM64T, RHEL 4.0, NetWare 6.5 (Dos Mode), SUSE 9, DOS, and future platforms. Currently, Z7 supports AMD64 and will support IA64 in the future.

WTH? It supports fscking DDR2 and GDDR3, but is only a 2D card?

And, the Radeon 7000, last I checked, had 3D capabilities.
