We have an exceptionally interesting guest today: a dual-chip XGI Volari Duo V8 Ultra graphics card from Club 3D company. eXtreme Graphics Innovation is a new player on the highly competitive 3D graphics market, who decided to break and enter the scene with an expensive dual-GPU part. Historically graphics cards with two processors were able to demonstrate exceptional performance, but were quoted at a very high price-point. Dual-chip products on XGI Technology do not cost more than competitors’ single-chip offerings, but are they really fast in today’s games and have a bright future? Find it out with us!
Tron 2.0 game uses 1280x960 resolution, which is not supported in the current XGI Reactor driver version. That is why we are offering you only the results for 1024x768 and 1600x1200:
There isn’t anything Volari Duo V8 Ultra could boast here. Besides the visual issues already mentioned above, the performance again turned out a total disaster.
IL-2 Sturmovik: Forgotten Battles also uses this nonstandard resolution: 1280x960.
As you see, there is hardly anything to comment on. Again a failure. I don’t think that flight simulator fans will ever decide on a solution from XGI.
