"The die size of each Volari VPU is even bigger than that of RADEON 9800 XT"
Why is it bigger if ATI chip have more transistors (110-115mln) and is made under a older tech .15?

S3 is better no dout in every aspect, from chip it self and the drivers.
XGI must do a special mode besides the turbo mode like a "ultra mode" where there were no textures and we could play games in wire frame it would be fast i think, and at the same time make a tribute to nVidia cards since the "sound" already have it.

Looks like everybody needs to avoid this chip!

Also where were the Homeworld2 benchmarks? HW2 is the most modern OpenGL game on the market. It is sad not to see it benchmarked again. Out of 10 games, 5 were FPS, but there was only one OpenGL game and only one RTS game. It would've been nice to see more RTS games and OpenGL games and HW2 would've covered that.

Please bring Homeworld2 back into the benchmarks.

We do test when we can. In case of Homeworld 2 we cannot benchmark it without glitches... The tilte runs on Volari, but with loads of issues, main are speed and quality.

i was thinking that V8 is still in test so it isnt a final product ??

What bothers me is not only this overpriced piece of junk, but the ample coverage xbit labs gave it to it! 32 pages? People, don't waste your time in review stuff like this, just wrap it up and be done with it if it's not worth it :)

Well I think it is all up to better drivers.
