XGI Technology Inc., a newly formed company by Silicon Integrated Systems Corp., has merged with the graphics processor division of U.S.-based Trident. XGI Director of Corporate Marketing Andy Chang says the company is scheduled to introduce its first series of graphics processor this month.

According to Chang, the graphics processor will be sold in flip-chip packages featuring eight pipelines (high-end solution) and four pipelines (conventional solution). The product will also include direct X line and Open GL 2.0 solutions.

The company's sales for July 2003 reached NT$100 million ($2.92 million at NT$34.22:$1). Chang said, "This came from the sales in graphics processors designed for notebook computers."

XGI has a registered capital of NT$1.70 billion ($49.67 million). Its current workforce at the Taiwan plant is 200 employees, and 70 R&D staff members in the U.S. (former Trident employees).
