XGI presents Volari X27 for servers

XGI is presenting three new graphics cores at its booth at Computex, a sever GPU, a new desktop card and a notebook graphics solution. The Inq says the Volari X27 for the server market is the most needed in the market.
The X27 will do 16*12, something that was desperately needed with today's GUI rich server mismanagement consoles. If you have ever used a server that will only so 8*6 in 256 colors with a refresh rate about that of an etch-a-sketch, you understand why these chips are so needed. XGI does one very nice thing here. It put in interfaces for DDR1/2/3, so you won't have to worry about sourcing expensive memory in the future. It will also run without a heatsink.
The Volari 8300 is also presented. It's a entry-level graphics card with a 300MHz core and 256MB RAM. And has four pipes, two VS and four Pixel Shader 2.0 units. Pictures can be found at The inquirer
