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!
Another flight simulator and another defeat. The newcomer is almost twice as slow as the former outsiders: GeForce FX 5600 Ultra and RADEON 9600 XT in the lowest resolution. In the higher resolutions it is even slower than that. Luckily, no optimizations have been noticed here, otherwise…
Space simulator fans also have nothing to hope for with XGI Volari: the performance of the top model, Volari Duo V8 Ultra, is extremely low in this one of the most beautiful games of the kind. Even in the lowest resolution you will not be able to play X2 – The Treat on Club3D Volari Duo V8 Ultra.
