Today Mikhailtech takes a look at a rather controversial video card, ECS's AG400T8-D64, based on the Xabre 400.

All of the outputs are handled by the SiS 301. The DVI connector found on the Triplex card is replaced by the 3DCON1 (3DVR/3D glasses) as well as the RCA1 (TV-out composite). Personally I like the former configuration since dual monitors are a lot more common than either of those. Then there's the usual SCON1 (TV-out S-Video) and CRT1 (VGA). The inclusion/exclusion of various connectors is not driver dependent; you can set video modes via the jumpers and incompatible modes just won't work. Memory is also different on the various cards. Actually only one of the two SiS reference boards uses 3.3ns Hynix memory; the others use 3.3ns EtronTech. Some versions of the Triplex use Hynix while others are equipped with EtronTech. 1000/3.3 = 303, so the memory is rated to hit 303mhz DDR, or 606mhz effectively. Naturally, more than just the memory module dictates exactly what kind of results can be had.
