XGI Dual GPU Benchmarked - Volari Duo V8 Ultra - Benchmarks - High Quality Real World Gaming

XGI has been in the 3D graphics game for only a little over nine months and already has a top to bottom line of products available from their short list of AIB partners. Today we look at the XGI Volari Duo V8 Ultra Dual GPU graphics card put directly against the 9800 XT and FX 5950. We use a whole bunch of the latest drivers including nVidia's ForceWare 56.64 which is being released today.

HQ - Jedi Knight II

 

 

XGI Performance: Like we say in JK2 the XGI card could hold its ground in the lower resolution and gives a very playable score.

 

New ATI Drivers: The new ATI drivers have really helped in increasing the performance in Jedi Knight 2.

 

New nVidia Drivers: No performance jump here from nVidia.

 

HQ - Unreal Tournament 2003

 

 

XGI Performance: XGI was beating the 9800XT but ATI have done a really good job with there new drivers and we see the XGI falling to the back of the pack again.

 

New ATI Drivers: A nice noticeable jump in performance from ATI.

 

New nVidia Drivers: We see nVidia get another little jump in performance here which is nice seen the new drivers haven't seem to do much.

 

HQ - Unreal Tournament 2004 Demo

 

 

XGI Performance: UT2K4 Demo brings all the cards very close again, and while the XGI card is running last it would be interesting to see what happens when their driver team works on further optimization.

 

New ATI Drivers: We leave our final test with the new ATI drivers not seeing much of a jump in UT2K4 Demo.

 

New nVidia Drivers: As the trend has been going the whole time nVidia's new drivers really don't offer much of a performance jump.
