Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) Corp. has announced the release of the Xabre600 GPU which provides complete Pro 8X8 support and features the company's Duo300 memory technology that allows the memory to run in sync with the graphics engine at a clock rate of 300MHz.

These features are claimed by the company to provide the Xabre600 with a performance improvement of at least 20 percent in the 3D Mark 2001 test, compared to the company's previous Xabre400 product.

"The Xabre series allows computer gamers to break through the bottleneck of computer gaming, by enabling the computer systems with the highest transfer rate and frequency, image resolution, system reliability and performance," explains Chris Lin, VP of Multimedia Products Division.

Manufactured using a 0.13?m process, the GPU delivers Pro 8x8 support via a Vertexlizer engine, which can spread vertex processing functions between hardware and software to increase system efficiency.

The GPU is also equipped with the company's Xmart technology to further improve its efficiency of the GPU. Xmart technology combines XmartAGP, XmartVision, and XmartDrive. XmartAGP automatically queries the host computer and dynamically adjusts itself to maximize AGP performance. XmartVision enhances color, brightness and contrast of 3D games by automatically making instant adjustment to render a rich 3D environment, while XmartDrive automatically senses and adjusts speed when entering complex 3D environments.

Also included are the Xminator-II unified driver package, Pixelizer engine, frictionless memory control, jitter free anti-aliasing, and the Motionfixing video processor.
