    I'm sure that's how all the new graphics card companies feel. How many of them have made it to the top? Well we all know ATi and nVidia...................................

    XtR-X, take a look at the benchmarks, XGI is already a threat.

    I'm more looking forward to seeing the new PowerVR chip in action myself.:)

    They still have work to do, but again, I'm very sure that other companies have been in this position before, and havn't made it to the top. Just because they don't have an article about it, doesn't mean that they once thought like XGI before.

    Plus, them giving their "PA" of how they are gonna "own" nvidia and ati isn't gonna make them happy, you think those two are gonna start slacking off or something?

    I looked at the benchmarks, they have definate work to do, in most of the benchmarks, they were at the bottom. Plus, who relys on benchmarks anyways, acid? *cough* :)

    Hmmm...
    I don't like their software config for the card...
    And i think they have a few big problems with the dual processor idea...
    I dunno...



    I just don't know

    I don't see anyone trouncing ATI or NVIDIA in that time frame. The competition is too fierce.

    Don't be too sure...

    There's been a lot of talk about XGI's DeltaChrome over at Beyond3d, and the potential in the chip...
    Let it & the drivers mature a bit, and it might be a contender...

    Especially if they manage to keep the price down...
    Imagine buying a top-end card for just a bit more than mainstream prices!
