Several graphics card suppliers, including Asustek Computer, CP Technology, Gigabyte Technology and Micro-Star International (MSI), will ship products using processors from XGI Technology, a new entrant in the graphics processor market, sources said.
These XGI-powered cards are expected to hit store shelves in late November at the earliest, sources added. "We are indeed working with CP Technology and Gigabyte," said Patrick Chang, corporate PR manager at XGI. "But we have no knowledge of deals with Asustek and MSI."
The chip vendor in September introduced its Volari series, a complete graphics processor line consisting of four chips available in seven configurations. Chang said mass production is expected to begin in late October or early November. Full-year shipment targets are not yet available, he added. According to a press release on October 1, XGI is also shipping chips to Club-3D, a Netherlands-based graphics card vendor. By early December, the whole XGI Volari product line will be available in the European market on Club-3D cards.
